Paleo Chocolate Mousse

For Valentine's Day, or any day for that matter, I desire a chocolate dessert. I found a recipe for a paleo chocolate mousse from Primal Palette. Since it is just the two of us, I shortened the recipe. Also, Rob doesn't like raspberries (my favorite!) so we had to change that up. You can use any berry or fruit in this recipe. I tossed the chocolate mousse with blackberries for Rob and he still enjoyed his. Since you use individual soufflé dishes, you can use anything you want. I would like to try pineapple next time. It's simple to whip together; could definitely be used for that last minute idea or craving. My recipe makes two small servings.

Paleo Chocolate Mousse

3.5 oz 70% dark chocolate, chopped into bite-sized pieces
1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup of coconut milk, scalded
Fresh raspberries (or any berry) for garnish

1. Blend chopped dark chocolate, egg, and vanilla in a high speed blender until smooth.
2. In a small saucepan heat coconut milk until almost boiling, you will see steam rising from the milk, but it should not be bubbling yet.
3. Slowly pour the scalded coconut milk into the blender and blend until smooth. 
4. Place as many fresh berries in the bottom of soufflĂ© dishes.

5. Pour chocolate cream mixture into the souffle dishes over the raspberries.
6. Cover each dish and chill in the refrigerator for two hours.
7. Garnish with shaved dark chocolate and a fresh berry. (I used chocolate chip to garnish mine)
