Chocolate Raspberry Mousse

I recently found an awesome recipe for chocolate mousse frosting that looked amazing (Chocolate Mousse Frosting). I changed the recipe up a little by adding raspberries and sugar. It turned out great! If you love coconut, chocolate, and raspberries, then this is a dessert you won't be able to resist.

Chocolate Raspberry Mousse 

  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup of sugar (more or less depending on how sweet you want it) 
  • 1 1/3 cup of Raspberries 

1) Stir the coconut milk, cocoa powder, vanilla extract, and sugar together in a bowl
2) Heat 1 cup of raspberries until warm/hot and strain them, only getting the raspberry juice.
3) Add the raspberry juice to the rest of the mixture
4) Put the mixture in the fringe for 1 to 2 hours (until hard on top)
5) Add 1/3 cup of fresh or frozen raspberries to the mousse
6) Put the mousse in an ice cream maker for around 30 min (it gets hard fast, so keep an eye on it)
    (If you don't have an ice cream maker, put the mousse back in the fridge for a few more hours until it's the consistency you prefer.)

 Once the mousse is done, top it off with some whipped cream and enjoy. I even put some raspberry jam on top of mine. If you aren't a big fan of raspberries you can just not add them. Next time I make it, I plan on trying peanut butter instead of raspberries.
