Dairy Free Chocolate Mousse - Paleo Friendly
- 1/2 cup raw cashews soaked for a couple of hours minimum, strained
- 3/4 cup canned coconut milk I link to my favorite brand for flavor and the fact is has no fillers or thickeners! Cream also works if dairy is tolerated.
- 1/2 cup berries of choice, I used a frozen cherry/raspberry/blueberry combo
- 1/2 cup coconut oil softened
- 6 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder or raw cacao
- 1/4 cup honey or favorite low carb sweetener, doesn't have to be a liquid sweetener. This is to taste, add more if you like.
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 pinch sea salt 1/16 to 1/8 teaspoon to taste, optional
Puree until super smooth and no fruit pieces are detectable. Let your taste-buds tell you...think silky! Can take multiple minutes in a food processor.
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!
Divide into 4 ramekins or other small dishes and place in fridge to chill and set.
