*Vegan and Gluten Free

1 cup Hazelnuts - soak in boiling water for at least 5 hours

3 Tablespoons Cacao Powder

3 Tablespoons Cacao Butter

1/3 cup Maple Syrup 

1 tsp Vanilla Essence

1 tsp Caramel Essence 

1 cup of full cream Coconut Milk

Preheat oven to 170c

Drain, rinse and place Hazelnuts into a tray and roast in the oven for 18 minutes or until the skins start to peel off.

Leave to cool.

Once cooled gently rub the Hazelnuts in a tea towel to remove skins then place into a high speed blender.

Place the rest of the ingredients into the blender and blitz until smooth then blitz again once or twice to cream the mixture.

Then pour into a jar and place in the fridge to set. 

Once set spread on toast or enjoy by the spoonful for guilt free snacking. 

Keto Vegan Chocolate Mousse 

vegan keto chocolate mousse

*Vegan and Gluten Free

5 TBSP Wahiki Vanilla Coconut Ice Cream

1 can Full Fat Coconut Cream - I use Essentials Countdown Brand (the dark green label) 

1 TBSP Coconut milk or 1 TBSP Maple Syrup instead of the Coconut Milk and Stevia (this will make it non keto) 

1 tsp Stevia 

3 TBSP Organic Raw Cacao Powder (Not Cocoa)

1 tsp Natural Vanilla Ess 

Place the can of coconut cream in the fridge overnight then open and scoop the top layer of hardened coconut cream off the the top (usually about half the can will be the cream and the bottom half will be coconut water) 

Place into a blender with the Wahiki Coconut Ice Cream, Coconut Milk (or Maple Syrup) , Stevia (is using) Cacao Powder (I use Cacao not Cocoa as it has more health benefits - think antioxidants, iron and magnesium - and a lighter fresher flavour) and the Vanilla Ess.

Optional extra I also used a Vanilla Pod and scraped the seeds for a little extra Vanilla flavour. 

Blend well until combined and smooth. If it is not blending then add a tiny bit more coconut milk or maple syrup. 

Once well blended scoop into a nice glass or dish and place in fridge for at least a couple of hours.

Optional extra add an edible flower or drizzle of maple syrup.
