Raw Dark Chocolate Paleo Mousse

Swoon!!  Silky, creamy, fudgey goodness that is actually healthy for you!

This is one quick dessert that will send your tastebuds straight into chocolate heaven, and is is perfect for these summer months when many are loathe to turn on the heat to cook ANYTHING!

Quick, easy, and ridiculously smooth and chocolaty. You can garnish with any fresh fruit of the season and a dollop of your favorite whipped coconut cream, or some roasted coconut meat!

Here are some links to some of my favorite ingredients in this recipe:

  • Nu Naturals Liquid Stevia,
  • Dagoba Cocoa Powder (not raw).
  • I still get my my raw cashews for $6.99/pound at Trader Joe’s, and my coconut oil for $5.99 at the same! I am looking in to getting my paws on some organic raw cashews soon!  Any of you have any great places you like to shop for good deals on natural groceries?!

Raw Dark Chocolate Mousse - Paleo Friendly
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 4
  • ½ cup raw cashews, soaked for a couple of hours minimum, strained
  • ¾ cup canned coconut milk (I used light)
  • ½ cup berries of choice (I used a frozen cherry/raspberry/blueberry combo)
  • ½ cup softened coconut oil
  • 6 tablespoons cacao powder
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 8 drops liquid stevia (or more to taste)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  1. Place all ingredients into a high powered blender or food processor.
  2. Puree until super smooth and no fruit pieces are detectable. This will happen in one high powered blender cycle, and longer with a food processor. Let your taste-buds tell you...think silky!
  3. Be sure to taste for sweetness. Since cutting out cane sugar, I use much less sweetener than I used to, so again, taste to make sure it is what YOU are looking for!

When her third child was born with severe food allergies, Tessa took to the kitchen to figure out how to feed her family well. Always up for a culinary challenge, their journey has taken many twists and turns! Lots of Paleo, and lots of top 8 free. Good food for families, that's what she's about!

  5. rando says:

  6. Nice simple recipe with wonderful ingredients! Thanks for the delicious recipe!

  7. Mmmm silky chocolate! This looks delicious!

  8. Oh my! I totally saw your picture and felt “Swoon” and then proceeded to read your article that started the same way. Swoon really does capture this dish. Awesomeness!

  9. A perfect no bake dessert with healthy ingredients to satisfy any sweet tooth!

    What a lovely wholesome treat! Your raw dark chocolate mousse sounds incredible!

  11. Carole says:

    Looks too decadent to be so healthy. I found this via Simple Living with Diane Balch. I linked in a spicy and crunchy coleslaw. Cheers.

    Hi Tessa,

    This recipe is outstanding! I love every ingredient in here. Yum, yum. Aren’t cashews the best!! :-) So funny, we posted chocolate dessert recipes last week on nearly the same day! Twins. :-)

    Have a great weekend,

  13. This sounds amazing! I have the NuNaturals liquid stevia and haven’t found a recipe I wanted to try it in- this is it!!

  14. YUM!! This looks great & I am definitely following your blog! Our house is also gluten & dairy free & I have been sugar free for 1 week :) Looking forward to checking out the rest of your site! Oh & I found you through Foodie Friday

    • Welcome Rise & Shine! Going sugar free is and adjustment in he beginning, but it is so worth it and so much better for our bodies! If I can help you or answer any questions, please let me know!!

    Hi Tessa,
    This is a beautiful Chocolate Mousse, it looks delicious! Hope you are having a great summer week end and thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday.
    Come Back Soon!
    Miz Helen

  16. Thank you for your submission on Nourishing Treasures’ Make Your Own! Monday link-up.

    Check back later tonight when the new link-up is running to see if you were one of the top 3 featured posts! :)

  17. Oh my…what a recipe to come across when I am craving chocolate and don’t have a chocolate item in the house LOL. I’m going to grab what I need at the grocery this week and give this a try for next weekend. Thanks for sharing in our linky ☺

  18. Oh my goodness! Now this looks AMAZING!! I will be making this recipe over the weekend! Thank you for posting :-)

  19. Sarah says:

    Mmm! I like the idea of using cashews. I tried avocado and wasn’t a huge fan, but cashews I’ll have to try. 😀

  20. Oh, Tessa,
    I am new here, but blown away with all the great things you make with totally healthy ingredients!! It makes me so happy to find a healthy cooking blog like yours. I will make this once the gardening season is over and link back to you as the source of the recipe, but I am wondering if you would please consider linking up all your great recipes weekly on the Deep Root’s ‘EOA’ Wednesday link-up. I feature 4-5 each week and share on FB. I’d love to see you there!

  21. Cassidy @ Cooking Gluten (& Dairy) Free says:

    Every time I visit your blog I run across another great recipe I just have to try! Looks great!!!

  22. Heather @Gluten-Free Cat says:

    As a lover of all things chocolate and raw I say…YUM! Come share at Raw Foods Thursdays!!

  23. Maryjo says:

    This looks amazing!! Our family just went gluten, soy, and dairy free due to my daughter’s and my food sensitivities. Unfortunately we can not use Stevia because of the reaction my daughter gets. Is there any other sweetener I could use so she can eat it? She can’t tolerate any of the artificial sweeteners, no matter what the base is. She gets terrible headaches. Thank you!

  24. Yuna says:

    Made this last night..SO GOOD thank you!! Made mine with raspberries.

  25. This looks great! NuNaturals is my favorite too. :-)

  26. I suspected this would be another avocado based mousse – but no – so I’ll have to give it a whirl, won’t it be lovely on a hot day to take out of the fridge? Mmmmmm:)

  27. I’d never have thought to combine cashews with berries! Great idea. Thanks for sharing.

  28. I’ll be featuring your delicious wholesome Dark Chocolate Mousse in my Hearth and Soul post this week :)

  29. Tessa, this sounds amazing!

    Thanks for sharing. :)

  30. Juleigh says:

    I read “think silly” instead of “silky” LOL! Sounds yummy but I’m sure I could do something silly. :)

  31. I love your natural ingredients! My sister follows a paleo diet and would love this recipe. I will definitely pass it along. If you are interested in sharing this or other recipes, I have a link-up party going on.

  32. Misty says:

    This is my favorite new dessert. I use frozen dark cherries and it tastes great!!

  33. Any recommendations for a Stevia substitute?

  34. Tracy says:

    We live in the tropics; will be trying either the pineapple or the apple bananas (yes, they do in fact taste like apples), or to heck with it — both!!

    Will also be cutting down on the honey, and adding more stevia instead.

    • I would never have thought of apples and chocolate…but bananas and chocolate I love! How creative Tracy!

      • Tracy says:

        Yes, it in fact was nummy. I agree; bananas were made to be paired with chocolate, as far as I’m concerned!! I used burro bananas, which aren’t overly sweet, instead of the apple bananas. It made for a dessert that wasn’t overpowered by the sweetness of the pineapple. I will be passing on this recipe to our friends to try for themselves. Perhaps next time I will use mangoes.

  35. Wow this looks incredible Tessa. I really appreciate your sharing with Gluten Free and DIY Tuesdays!

    Hey, not sure whether you will be able to answer this for me… but I was wondering if regular heavy cream would work instead of coconut milk? I never use coconut milk because I have a family member that is allergic to coconut. Thanks!
