Course: Dessert, Mousse
Cuisine: Gluten-Free, Grain-Free, Vegan
Servings: 4


  • 1 1/2 cups canned coconut cream
  • 1/4 cup raw cacao powder or cocoa powder*
  • 2-3 tablespoons pure maple syrup, to taste (I use 3)
  • 1/3 cup dairy-free chocolate chips or chopped dark chocolate
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
  • Fresh berries (optional)


  • Melt the chocolate chips over a double boiler or in the microwave. If you melt them in the microwave, I suggest whisking in 1 tablespoon water to thin the chocolate.
  • Add the coconut cream, cacao powder, maple syrup, melted dark chocolate, and vanilla extract (if desired) to a large mixing bowl.
  • Using a hand mixer or stand mixer with whisk attachments in place, whisk the mixture on high for 3-4 minutes or until all ingredients are incorporated and the mousse is light and fluffy.
  • Pour the mixture into 4 serving dishes or glasses.
  • Refrigerate for at least 1 hour to set.
  • Top with fresh berries, if desired, and serve.


*If your cacao or cocoa powder has lumps in it, I recommend sifting it beforehand to ensure a smooth consistency.
