if you eat chocolate during the holidays or just because you love it…

 

For ”Chocolate Aficionados” ….

If you love chocolate and missed my interview with Candace McTwigan of organic McTwigan Spices..please listen in and learn how one of the world’s oldest centenarians ate 2 lbs of chocolate a week till her physician advised her to give up sweets at the age of 119! (click link below)

Candace shares a quick 5 min yummie chocolate mousse recipe from McTwigan Spices…(see with or without dairy recipe below)

With dairy..

1/2 c. any flavor McTwigan cocoa, (My favorite is Heavenly Cocoa naturally sweetened with xylitol) 1 c. heavy cream, 4 ramekins(chilled)

In a blender, place organic heavy cream and cocoa. Blend until cream has whipped. Spoon equal amounts of mousse into the ramekins. Top with sprig of mint or fresh raspberry if desired. Serve immediately.

Dairy free and vegan version….Try this instead:

Substitute 1 c. organic almond milk and bring to a boiladd 1 Tb. kudzu powder (great thickening agent for puddings and sauces..many health benefits too!) and 1/2 c. cocoa. Whisk till mixture thickens. Spoon equal amounts of mousse into the ramekins. Top with sprig of mint or fresh raspberry if desired. Chill and then serve.

If you want to spice up your chocolate experience…try McTwigan Aztec Cocoa….organic cocoa with chilies!

Many thanks to Candance for sharing her recipe and story…

Enjoy the holidays and of course enjoy spring!

  1. A dairy free recipe – excellent!!! Just curious, why does the almond milk need to be boiled?
