This Healthy Lectin-Free Vegan Chocolate Mousse is a great recipe to make or share during the hot summer months.
It's such a light and airy dessert and it's really easy to make.
I love to make different flavors of vegan mousse and some of my favorites are Clean Eating Vegan Strawberry Mousse, Vegan Pumpkin Spice Mousse, Vegan Lemon Mousse Tarts and Clean Eating Banana Split Mousse (so good!)
Traditional mousse recipes contain dairy, are not vegan and contain unnecessary ingredients.

Tip #1: Always keep a can (or two!) of organic full-fat coconut milk in the back of your refrigerator so you can make this recipe at a moments notice. If you don't have a can ready, you will need to leave it in the refrigerator - at least- 24 hours so the fat in the coconut milk can harden, but the longer the better. Once you open your can, the top half will be solid (fat) and the bottom half will be liquid (water). You will be using ONLY the solid part for this recipe (save the liquid part to add to a smoothie!).
Healthy Lectin-Free Vegan Chocolate Mousse
Yield 1 cup
Vegan / Gluten-Free / Dairy-Free / Lectin-Free / Egg-Free / Nut-Free / Soy-Free / Alkaline / Paleo-Friendly / No Refined Sugar
- 1 can organic full-fat coconut milk (13.5 ounce can)
- 1 tablespoon organic raw cacao powder
- 2 tablespoons organic unrefined granular sweetener*
Advanced Preparation: Put a can of full-fat coconut milk in the back of your refrigerator -at least- 24 hours, or longer, before making this recipe. The "fat" in the can will need to be solid to make the mousse.
- Remove the can of coconut milk from the refrigerator. The top half of the can should be the hardened coconut "fat" and the bottom half should be liquid coconut "water".
- Scoop out the hardened "fat" part of the coconut milk from the top of the can and add it to the bowl of your mixer. Save the coconut "water" to add to a smoothie.
- Add the cacao powder and sweetener of your choice to the mixer bowl and mix on high speed with a whisk attachment until it peaks and turns into a fluffy mousse.
- Optional: Top with raw cacao nibs, raspberries, strawberries, mini-chocolate chips (not lectin-free), shredded coconut, etc.
- Store in the refrigerator in an air-tight BPA-free container until ready to serve or it will get soft if left out at room temperature.
