Vegan Chocolate Mousse with Brownie Bites

Before there was an abundance of vegan dairy alternatives I used canned coconut milk for everything (well, I still do really). I put it over my granola and morning fruit to make a parfait. I put it in curries and soups for a hearty, satisfying cream base. I used it to thicken smoothies that rivaled with the best shakes.

I love seeing all of the new vegan products out there, but there is nothing better than the O.G products you’ve loved for so long and have never let you down.

This dessert is insanely easy to make and delicious. It will have you with your toes curling and mouth watering for another delicious bite.

Because we use canned coconut milk and coconut sugar instead of refined white sugar and a heavy whipping cream, this dish is quite a bit healthier. Coconut sugar is minimally processed and still has all of its minerals and fiber intact. The fiber helps it to not go to your blood stream as fast so you won’t get as much of an insulin spike.

I've also used the chocolate mousse as a vegan frosting for cakes. It never fails to impress guests.  So rich, creamy and delicious,  this treat makes any occasion special.  Try it out and let me know how you loved it!

This is great for a sweet valentine’s treat to show yourself or a loved one a little love.
