recipe: mocha coconut mousse

the day of my emergency root canal i was sitting here thinking that some smooth food might be nice and coincidentally this recipe popped up on my desk and i'm not really into chocolate cherry anything, but i figured i could adapt the general concept to something i might like.

so here's my adaptation:

things you're gonna need

a cup of chocolate chips. it won't pay you to go cheap on these.
a teaspoon of coconut oil
a can of coconut milk, preferably one that has settled. don't jiggle it.
some coffee flavored thing. i used instant coffee powder reconstituted with maple syrup. it's what i had in the house. don't judge.

things you should do

turn the can of coconut milk upside down and open the bottom. drain the liquidy stuff and save it to do something else with. the part you're going to use is the solid creamy stuff. if you get stupid and open the wrong end of the can you have to use a spoon to scoop it out, but no harm done.

toss the chocolate and the coconut oil in a bowl large enough to hold all the things. melt them together in your microwave at 30 second intervals, stirring between. alternatively you can use a double boiler on the stove, but why would you?

add the solid part of the coconut milk and the coffee flavored thing, and blend it up real well. a hand mixer will make it fluffier, but your stick blender will do ok in a pinch.

put in in some little dishes and chill it for a few hours.

it is very tasty and does not hurt at all.
