Nutritional Advisor for Freedom Foods, Dr Jo McMillan, has created a Mocha Almond Milk Valentine’s Day Mousse, featuring as a star ingredient Freedom Food’s – Australia’s Own Almond Milk (great dairy alternative). Check out the recipe below:
2 ½ cups Australia’s Own Almond Milk
¼ tsp salt
¼ cup cocoa powder
¼ cup cornflour
¼ cup honey (or for a no added sugar option you can use a stevia based or monk fruit natural sweetener)
¼ cup sugar free dark chocolate
2 shots espresso
- In a small saucepan whisk together the almond milk, salt, cocoa powder and corn flour. Place over a moderate heat and bring to the boil whisking regularly to ensure no lumps. Simmer for a minute or so until thickened.
- Add the honey, dark chocolate and espresso to the pan and stir until melted.
- Pour into glasses or ramekins and leave on the kitchen bench to cool. Once cool place in the fridge to completely set.
- Top with sliced strawberries, blueberries, cherries or raspberries (or a combination) and a shaving of dark chocolate to serve.
