OK, so this isn’t strictly cooking but I’m forgiving myself on the basis that we are moving house and I’m not a super hero! Also, this mousse is luscious, divine, ridiculously easy and delivers instant gratification! Sooooooo rich, dense and simply delicious, the recipe comes from adventurer, Bear Grylls in answer to the question, “What would be the one recipe you would pass on?” I’ve made two, but you could easily make four, using shot glasses, serving them with raspberries perhaps. Whatever way you choose, give this mousse a whirl – I dare you not to fall in love with it!!!!
What you need…
4 slightly heaped tablespoons cacao powder
4 tablespoons maple syrup
2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted and cooled
1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
What to do…
Pop all the ingredients in a bowl. Use an electric handheld whisk to beat all the ingredients together until the mixture is smooth.
Divide between either 2 or 4 pretty glasses. Pop in the fridge to chill.
Take a teaspoon, dig in, revel in the rich lusciousness of this gorgeous mousse. Repeat until it’s all gone. Feel blessed that something so simple is sooooooo good!
Ridiculously – it takes literally 3 minutes
