Chia Chocolate Mousse

by | Jul 31, 2015 | Breakfast, Sweet Treats | 0 comments

If a rich creamy chocolate mousse is your kind of dessert (or breakfast) then you’re gonna love this one!

It sure tastes even better than the real thing!

I have posted a few chia pudding recipes but this one is undoubtedly the best I’ve tried! The secret? Blend the chia seeds and the other ingredients to make a smooth and creamy mixture before setting. That way you don’t get the globby gel-like texture.

I wish I could have captured the delight in my hubby’s face when I told him that he could have chocolate mousse for breakfast! Priceless!

Ingredients

1½ cups coconut milk (or almond milk)

170g (about 6 large) pitted medjool dates

½ cup raw cacao powder

⅓ cup chia seeds

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

¼ teaspoon Himalayan salt or sea salt

Method

Combine coconut milk, dates, cacao powder, chia seeds, vanilla, cinnamon and salt in a blender.

Blend until very smooth (about two minutes).

Transfer the mixture to a glass jar or bowl, cover and refrigerate overnight.

Yep, it’s that easy!

Notes

And for a fun way to serve the mousse? Add sliced banana to a Consol Jar or glass, then spoon Almond Butter next, followed by the mousse. Top with mixed berries, gojis and cacao nibs and drizzle a little maple syrup over the berries. I’m drooling!

Vegan Fudgy Choc Chip Blondies

Blondie bars often pop up on my social media feeds, but either they aren’t popular in South Africa or some how I have been missing out on these beauties for years! Blonde moment, but I admit I had to ask google why these gooey, fudgy bars are in fact called Blondies....
