Vegan Chocolate Mousse

I love coconut. It is by far my favorite food to eat and cook with, so I decided I should create a recipe with the main ingredient being coconut. This vegan, superfood-filled, fruit-sweetened chocolate mousse is such a crowd pleaser and it's so easy to make! If you're wondering where to find a whole young coconut, try checking your local super-market. I buy mine at Whole Foods, and Von's sometimes carries them. Happy coconut-hunting, and enjoy this incredible mousse!
Serves 2 people.


The flesh of 1 young coconut (My coconut had about 3/4 cup flesh in it, but most coconuts have at least 1 cup, mine was unusually small.)
1/2 cup coconut water
1 ripe banana (If it's SUPER ripe and sweet, you may only need to use half of it, but otherwise, use the whole thing.)
1/4 cup raw raw cacao powder
1 Tbs chia seeds
1 Tbs flax seeds


 1. With your high speed blender on high, blend all ingredients together until thick and creamy.
2. Pour mixture into an airtight container, and place in the fridge for at least two hours to solidify and chill.
3. Spoon into small bowls, top with berries,
and serve!
