Dairy Free Chocolate Mousse • NO AVOCADO | Healthy treats #4

 

This Dairy Free Chocolate Mousse is that kind of healthy treat that takes you only a feel minutes to whip up.

The only extra work here is actually having to wait for the coconut cream to chill overnight.
But let’s be honest that this is extra work for your fridge, right? 😁

On the absolute plus side, this recipe is absolutely delicious!

Not even the fussiest of the eaters would think this chocolate mousse is dairy free.
And you can totally adapt it to a vegan version by replacing honey with coconut sugar, that works just as fine. Perfection!

Ingredients
  • 2 cans of coconut cream, chilled overnight
  • ¼ cup of honey
  • ½ cup of cocoa powder
  • A pinch of salt
Directions
  1. Open the coconut cream cans and scoop out only the solid coconut cream into a mixing bowl. Whip it until soft and creamy. Reserve 4 tablespoons of it for later.
  2. Tip: you can use the remaining water in the cans for cooking or smoothies
  3. Add honey, cocoa powder, and salt, mixing until well combined.
  4. Pour the mixture into 2 serving bowls and keep refrigerated until serving time.
  5. It’s DONE! 🎉
    Serve it with one tablespoon of that cream we previously reserved, and garnish with grated dark chocolate.

It’s very common to find recipes of chocolate mousse that use avocado as the base ingredient.

I decided to shake things up a bit and create this version that uses coconut cream as the base instead!

Try it by yourself and you’ll be surprised by how amazing it tastes!

Tip: to make a version of this chocolate mousse that is even more low carb, replace honey with an artificial sweetener of your choice.

To start, I decided to bring you a refreshing breakfast option: an Avocado & Chia pudding. This is perfect for a hot summer morning, refreshing and super filling.

Directions
  1. Add to a blender, the avocado, coconut cream, and lemon juice. Blend until you get a nice and smooth mixture.
  2. Turn off the blender and mix in the chia seeds.
  3. Pour the mixture into a container and refrigerate it for at least 3 hours (overnight is better).

Another low carb bread that’s a winner here at home: almond flour bread! 🍞

This bread is unbelievably easy to make and requires just a handful of ingredients.
It’s also super tasty and has a great bread-like texture, perfect to make toasts.

I love to have mine with avocado, spinach, and smoked salmon.
That’s a delicious combination and a killer breakfast option, keeping you full for hoooooours (in a healthy way)!

  • 2 teaspoons of baking soda
  • a pinch of salt
Directions
  1. Put all ingredients in a blender or food processor, mixing until everything is well combined.
  2. Grease a loaf pan with coconut oil and cover it with a baking sheet. I used a 20cm loaf pan here.
    Then, add in the batter.
  3. Preheat oven to 150°C (300°F) and bake it for 40 min or until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean. ⏰

Sesame seed crackers | Low Carb Crackers #1

I always have some of these Sesame seed crackers in my pantry. 🙂

They are perfect for a quick-and-easy breakfast or snack.
I even know people that like to have them for lunch too.

These crackers taste super neutral and you can spread anything you like over them.
I personally like mine with butter or avocado.

They are also gluten and nut free!
And you can make it dairy free as well, just skip the cheese from the recipe below (texture-wise it won’t make a big difference).

Ingredients
  • 1 and ¼ cups of sesame seeds
  • ½ cup of pumpkin seeds
  • 1 cup of grated parmesan cheese (optional if you want to make a dairy free version)
  • 1 tablespoon of psyllium husk
  • ½ cup of water
  • 2 eggs
  • salt to taste
Directions
  1. Mix together all the ingredients: sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, parmesan cheese, psyllium husk, water, eggs, and salt.
  2. Line a parchment paper on a baking tray and spread out the resulting mixture over it.
  3. Preheat oven at 170°C (340°F) and bake it for 20 minutes. ⏰
  4. Then, briefly take them out of the oven and carefully cut the crackers in the shape you like.
  5. Lower the heat to 140°C (280°F) and bake it for another 40 minutes. ⏰
  6. It’s DONE! 🎉
    Let them cool before removing from the baking tray.

Did you know? Crackers are so versatile that is incredibly hard to pinpoint their real origin.
Many cuisines around the world have at least a few variations or recipes that pose as crackers.
