  • 15-20 Medjool dates, pitted and chopped*
  • 1, 13.5oz can Coconut milk, unsweetened or 1 cup coconut cream
  • 3/4 cup water, filtered
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder, unsweetened
  • 1/3 cup vegan chocolate chips
  • 1/2 Tbsp coconut oil


  • First, you will need to place the canned coconut milk in the fridge for 2-3 hours or overnight for the coconut milk to solidify into coconut cream. Then, you can use the coconut cream for the mousse and discard the remaining liquid in the can (or save it for another culinary use).
  • In a powerful blender or food processor, blend the dates, full fat coconut cream and water together for 1-2 min.
  • Then, in a microwave safe bowl melt the chocolate chips and coconut oil together. I cover with a paper plate and heat for 1 minute, stir, and then heat for another 30 seconds. It should be melted at this point!
  • Pour the melted chocolate and cocoa powder into the blender and mix until smooth. You may need to add water (2-4 Tablespoons) to achieve a smooth consistency.
  • Pour the mousse into individual serving dishes and place in fridge for 1 hour (or if you're like me and can't wait, you can sneak a few bites!)
  • Enjoy with fresh berries or make it into a parfait layered with mousse, fresh berries (or cherries if in season) and coconut cream on top.



  • Make sure the coconut milk has been chilled in the fridge for 1-2 hours (or longer for best results). The coconut needs to solidify so you can use the full fat coconut cream bliss. The full fat cream will separate from the water and you will use the full fat cream, not the water.
  • *Soften the dates if they feel stiff by submerging them in a bowl of water for 10-15 minutes. If your dates are super fresh you won't have to do this step. Also, remove the pits if not already pitted.
