Vegan chocolate mousse

Just 5 ingredients for this vegan chocolate mousse


  • 2 cans 13.5oz Coconut cream
  • 1 cup Raw cacao
  • 5 oz Date syrup
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp Sea salt


  1. Place 2 cans of coconut cream in the refrigerator overnight (at least 24 hours). This will allow the coconut cream and liquid to solidify. 
  2. Add all ingredients into a mixing bowl and blend with a blender until smooth. 
  3. Scoop mousse into serving dish(s), place back into the fridge for 1 hour.
  4. Serve chilled

***Note: Sometimes the coconut cream will not solidify and still have some liquid. You can use the cream and liquid for a thinner chocolate mousse OR simply use the cream only for a much denser dessert—both are delicious!

Vegan chocolate mousse is the perfect sweet treat to whip up any time. Our secret to making it quick? Always keep a few cans of coconut cream in the fridge to use on the spot. The best part about this dessert is its healthy, gluten-free, oil-free, and really simple to make. Make it for yourself or take it to parties, either way you can let folks know it’s vegan chocolate mousse and it won’t ruin their diet
