For the Mousse
    • 2 ripe avocados, large
    • 3 tablespoons coconut cream (the solid part in a can of chilled full-fat coconut milk)
    • 2 tablespoons maple syrup (or honey)
    • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder (or cacao powder)
    • Dairy-free chocolate shavings or dairy free chocolate chips

  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup

Chill in refrigerator for about 30 minutes before serving. Top with whipped cream (below), shaved dairy free chocolate, and Himilayan sea salt.

Chocolate Coconut Tart 

Serves: 2 mini tartsPaleo-Chocolate-Coconut-Tart
  • ¼ cup shredded unsweetened coconut
  • ½ cup chopped pecans
  • ½ cup dates (about 9 dates)
  • pinch of sea salt
Tart Filling
  • 1½ cups coconut cream
  • ¼ cup + 1 Tablespoon cacao powder
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • 1 Tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • pinch of sea salt
  1. Process the crust ingredients (coconut, pecans, dates and sea salt) in a food processor or mini chopper until the dates have turned into sticky paste holding the crust ingredients together. Take mixture out of the processor and press evenly into two mini springform pans. Place pans in freezer while you make the tart filling.
  2. While the crust is setting in the freezer, blend ingredients for the filling (coconut cream, cacao powder, maple syrup, coconut oil, vanilla and sea salt) in a high-speed blender or food processor until creamy. Pour half the filling over the crust in one pan and then pour the remaining filling over the crust in the second pan. Use a spoon to make sure the filling is even and smooth. Place pans in the freezer to set up, at least 2 hours, but can be overnight. Take out of freezer, remove the springform pan, let sit out for 10-15 minutes, cut into slices. Top with fresh berries and serve. The longer it sits out, the filling will soften and become more like pudding. It still tastes amazing, but not as firm. Store any leftovers back in the freezer.
