Low Carb Dark Chocolate Almond Mousse
By Dani Taylor
1 15 oz. can of full-fat coconut milk, chilled
1 tsp almond extract
1 Tbsp coconut sugar
3 Tbsp cocoa powder
¼ c. sliced almonds
¼ c. shredded coconut
Separate the coconut cream from the liquid, by scooping the cream off the top with a spoon.
Add the coconut cream, almond extract, and coconut sugar to a bowl and beat with a mixer until smooth.
Set aside 2 Tbsp of this mixture.
Add cocoa powder to the large bowl and beat again until smooth.
Portion your chocolate mousse into 4 cups and top with a dollop of the white coconut cream.
In a large dry skillet, over low-medium heat, add the almonds and shredded coconut. Toss and stir continuously until they start to brown and smell fragrant.
Top each mousse cup with 1 Tbsp of the coconut and almond mixture.
