I can’t resist celebrating my birthday with a little something sweet. Here’s a recipe that won’t destroy your health, but sure doesn’t taste healthy.
Whipped Coconut & Honey Mousse
- 1 can full fat (this is the good kind of fat) organic coconut milk
- 2 tablespoons local honey
- 1 teaspoon organic vanilla extract
- Optional toppings: dark chocolate chips, roasted coconut flakes & sliced almonds
Open the can of coconut milk and put in the fridge overnight uncovered. You’ll find that the top 3/4 of the can has hardened enough where you can scoop out the coconut milk. Scoop out the hardened part (its okay if you get some of the liquid at the bottom) into a mixing bowl. Add the honey and vanilla extract and then whip with beaters or your whisk attachment until it has the consistency of whipped cream. Then separate into a few ramekins – I usually get 5-6 servings out of a full can. I toss some coconut flakes and sliced almonds in some melted coconut oil, a dash of cinnamon and a little honey before putting on a cookie sheet to toast in the oven for a few minutes. And/or you can add a few dark chocolate chips – I found some without any soy at Natural Grocers!
And now time to devour the deliciousness by the spoonful…. Enjoy!
