I was getting an eye twitch the other day. Perhaps it is the sleep deprivation and stress that having an infant, a pre-schooler and a business to run all on your own while your husband works out of town, or perhaps it was a magnesium deficiency. Praying it was the later, I whipped up a batch of this mousse, mainly because I didn't have the foresight to see the twitch coming and so didn't make an overnight chia pudding. This however, turned out super delicious. So I thank my eye twitch for this recipe.
Choc Chia Mousse
Makes 4 serves
1/4 cup chia seeds
1/4 cup hemp seeds
1 can coconut cream (400g)
2 tablespoons Great Lakes gelatin (the green one - I add it for extra nutritional punch, you don't need the read one, because you don't need it to gel, the chia seeds will do that for you.)
2 tablespoons raw cacao
2 tablespoons maple syrup
High Speed blender or thermomix
Make Me Up
Chuck all you dry ingredients into your thermomix or high powered blender and blitz for 1 min till you have a fine powder. Add your wet ingredients and banana and blitz for 2-3 min until you have a thick mousse consistency.
Pop left overs into the fridge and they will set like this thick chocolatey goodness.
How about some cake after that mousse? Have you checked out my paleo cake e-cookbook? Get the recipes for a lamington cake, a humming bird cake and a double chocolate cake, complete with icings and decoration tips here.
