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!


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


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!


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!
