Cool and Creamy Mint-Chip Mousse

Serves 6 | Prep time: 15 minutes | Total time: 25 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 can unsweetened coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup birch xylitol
  • 1 1/2 tsp. peppermint extract
  • 1 tsp. corn-free vanilla extract (such as Frontier brand)
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 1/4 cup coconut butter, melted
  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened raw cacao nibs (such as Navitas Naturals)

Directions

  1. In a blender, combine the coconut milk, xylitol, peppermint, vanilla, and salt. Blend to combine.
  2. Add the melted coconut butter and avocados. Blend until creamy.
  3. In individual dishes, layer about 1/4 cup of mousse followed by a scant teaspoon of cacao nibs, followed by another 1/4 cup of mousse.
  4. Top with another sprinkle of cacao nibs.
  5. Refrigerate for about 10 minutes and serve. (It’s best to serve right away, since the avocados will gradually lose their green color and turn a more brown color).
