September 2nd was National Coconut Day...and you can bet I celebrated!
Do you like coconut? It’s one of my favorite foods, and I enjoy it in so many forms.
I had a can of coconut cream in my refrigerator that I’d been waiting to use, and now I had my chance. So I cracked it open and made this ridiculously easy 5-Ingredient Chocolate Mousse. You literally dump all of the ingredients in a bowl, blend for a couple of minutes, and put in the refrigerator. I did it in between bouts of caring for my 5-month-old. And five minutes is about all I had. My husband, who isn't typically a mousse fan ate his fair share (and then some), and heartily approved. and on top of everything, you would never guess that this wasn't the real thing.
And on top of it all it's arguably a little better for you than the normal cream option...especially if you use the raw cacao (a superfood!).
Be sure to tag me on IG (@bellesdirtydishes) when you make this--I can't wait to hear what you think!
