  • Open can from the bottom. Strain the water away from the cream using the lid of the can - you can save the water for smoothies
  • Put the coconut cream in a large mixing bowl. Add the cocoa powder, coconut sugar and vanilla and whip with an electric mixer until everything is smooth and well combined.

Notes

Be careful not to move the can too much when turning upside down
The longer the can of coconut milk is in the fridge, the better the cream will separate from the water.
Mousse tastes even better once it's been sitting in the fridge for a few hours.
