  • 1 can full fat coconut milk chilled in fridge overnight

Instructions:
  1. Skim off the top layer of coconut cream and place in bowl, leaving behind the watery layer in the bottom. 
  2. Using a hand whisk or electric mixer, beat the coconut cream into desired texture. If you would like, you can reserve some white cream before adding cocoa, to top mousse before serving.
  3. With a spoon, mix in cocoa, vanilla, stevia, cinnamon, and salt.  Put in serving bowl.
  4. Garnish with berries, coconut flakes, or the reserved coconut cream. Enjoy!
