Ingredients

  • 1 can full fat coconut milk
  • 3 Tablespoons fresh squeezed orange juice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 5 ounces white chocolate
  • toasted coconut
  • pomegranate seeds

Instructions

  • ***NOTE: Refrigerate your can of full fat coconut milk overnight to separate and solidify the coconut cream from the coconut milk***
  • Remove the can of coconut milk from the fridge and scoop out only the solid white cream and put into a bowl
  • Save the milk that's left in the bottom of the can to use in something else, like a smoothie
  • Add the orange juice and the vanilla to the bowl with the coconut cream and beat together with an electric hand mixer on low speed for a couple minutes until a thick heavy cream is formed
  • To melt your chocolate, place your broken up pieces in the top of a double boiler or a metal bowl over a pot of simmering water (*Important* - make sure the water doesn't touch the bottom of your bowl - but just allow the steam to heat the bowl with the chocolate)
  • Stir your white chocolate as it's melting with a rubber spatula until it's melted and creamy and then remove from heat
  • Add 2 heaping Tablespoons of the whipped coconut cream to your melted chocolate and gently stir together until combined
  • Slowly and gently fold this mixture into the bowl of whipped coconut cream until well combined
  • Spoon the mousse into mini dessert glasses of your choice - 2 to 4 ounce size is perfect
  • Toast a small amount of coconut in a dry frying pan
  • Top your mousse with toasted coconut and pomegranate seeds and garnish with a fresh orange wedge
  • ENJOY!
