This week I have been off from work, which has been really nice - some time to be mindful and catch up with friends... and...perhaps... indulge, just a little bit!
Enter Bounty Mousse! Three ingredients, and it is very rich, so I suggest you share it with your best friend or perhaps a special someone *smiles*
To lighten it up you could perhaps use agave syrup instead of dry sweetener, I used xylitol, and it turned into deliciously lush coconut-chocolate goodness!
Vegan Bounty Mousse
1 can full fat coconut, refrigerated overnight
4 tbsp xylitol or other sweetener (normal sugar is OK, just a little naughtier *wink*)
2 heaped tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
Dessicated coconut to decorate (optional)
- Open the coconut milk can and scoop out the upper layer that is set. Place in a bowl and mix in the cocoa powder and sweetener until it is all even and fluffy. Serve as it is, or leave to set a little in the fridge! How easy was that?!
This week, my friend Mari and I went on a little outing to Bowling, and Kilpatrick (close to the Auchentoshan Whisky Distillery) and we had a really nice adventure! We even found a pier with some ship wrecks! We didn't get to climb any hills like we intended though, but we saw Sheep Hill! (Yes, it is actually called that, haha). St. Patrick's was also celebrated, and yesterday aforementioned Maricat also had a bunch of us over for dinner and a delicious home made spinach cake! It was so green, but you couldn't taste that at all, it was really delicious!
I hope you have had a lovely week, did you celebrate St. Patrick's at all?
Recipe by yours truly,
