Say hi to Hello Joyous!
An organic, plant-based, sustainable beauty brand here to bring more joy to your day.
I hope you've tried some of my favourite holiday cookies in my recent post! I attended the Chocolate Chip Tahini cookies - they were a hit. So the holiday theme continues because it's only December 3rd.
This recipe for Chocolate Chia Mousse is from second cookbook Joyous Detox.
It is absolutely perfect if you want a healthier holiday dessert!
This recipe is on page 252 but I've got a video for you to watch too.
For best results, use organic, full-fat canned coconut milk because it should be thick and creamy. Tetra pak coconut milk will yield a runny consistency. You can do it but you'll just have to add more chia seeds.
There you have it! My chocolate chia mousse -- the perfect holiday dessert or mid-afternoon powersnack. And you could even eat this at breakfast because it's full of good fat and protein to keep your metabolism churning and your belly satisfied.
Have a joyous week!
OMG this recipe is amazing... Thank youReply
It's one of our favourites around here, for sure! Glad you love it Cindy :) Rachel - Joyous Health Team
Do you think this recipe would freeze if I make lots?Reply
Hey Meg, It should be okay, however we haven't tried it so we wouldn't be able to guarantee results. Let us know if you end up giving it a whirl! Rachel - Joyous Health Team
What would be the calories per serving?Reply
Hey Danielle, We don't have this information available as we prefer to view food from a qualitative perspective rather than a quantitative angle and to focus on the nutritional properties it provides (which is a lot, in this recipe and all of the recipes you'll find on Joyous Health!)

how long will this last in the fridge?!Reply
About 4 to 5 days, enjoy!
Can Deglet Noor dates be used instead of medjool? I bought these by accident 😬.Reply
Probably! If they are dry and dense, I would recommend re-hydrating them in hot water before combining. Let me know how it turns out!
