Paleo Intense Chocolate Mousse

Paleo Intense Chocolate mousseThis fabulous paleo intense chocolate mousse is perfect for chocolate lovers.  I can’t resist its not overly sweet flavor!  Just the way I like it.

Chocolate mousse is normally made with eggs, cream or butter.  This paleo version is made with coconut milk.

Here it goes…keep reading! 

You simply need to put the can of coconut milk in your fridge and use the thick top layer, hardened fatty portion – just like cow’s milk cream separates from the milk upon standing as long as the cow’s milk hasn’t been homogenized.  Make sure you select a brand that uses BPA-free cans, I use this one :   (pass your cursor on the image to get info)

As you know, being a Canadian, I often use Canadian maple syrup in my recipes.  

It just can’t compare with the extremely process products you find in the grocery stores such as Aunt Jemima® table syrup for example.


If you’ve never tried real maple syrup, I warn you that you won’t want to go back to something else after.  It is one of the greatest sweet flavor that nature gave us.

Also, make sure you serve small mousse portions as the avocados and chia seeds will give it a nice but rich texture, a real delight!

I would love to hear about you.  Let me know when you make this recipe and if you made delicious changes that everyone could benefit from by commenting below.
