This crowd pleaser has ‘wowed’ everyone from my foodie friends to finicky guests, and this weekend it passed the ultimate test: a picky 4 year old reluctant to try new foods asked for seconds!
Creamy cocoa mousse presents itself as a decadent dessert, but it is secretly packed with powerful nutrients and perfect for all 3 phases of the postnatal nutrition plan. Prior to garnishing with blackberries, a serving delivers only 8g carbohydrate. It’s also full of nutrients excellent for pregnancy: cultured, full fat dairy (rich in vitamins A & D + probiotics), low in sugar, and when topped with blackberries it provides an excellent source of antioxidants & fiber.
Satisfying, nutritious and truly delicious!
Creamy cocoa mousse (serves 4)
- 1 cup full fat sour cream
- ½ cup mascarpone
- ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon all natural maple syrup or rapadura (unrefined) sugar
- 4 teaspoons cocoa powder (unsweetened)
- a sprinkle of cinnamon
- Fresh blackberries to garnish
Stir together sour cream, mascarpone, vanilla, maple syrup and cocoa in a mixing bowl. Can be served immediately or refrigerated.
When ready to serve, stir well before spooning into serving bowls. Top each serving with a sprinkle of cinnamon and garnish with fresh blackberries. Enjoy!
