This super festive pudding couldn’t be simpler! It takes no time to make so it’s ideal for the holiday season when you are already busy preparing lots of other things. It’s super rich and decadent but still packed with healthy fats and protein thanks to the chestnut and coconut milk. It’s so incredibly creamy and silky too that I promise nobody will ever guess is completely dairy free!

Ingredients: Makes about 5 pots depending on the size

1 can of full fat coconut milk

250 gr of cooked chestnut or chestnut puree

100 gr of good quality dark chocolate ( I have used Raw Halo)

2 tablespoon of coconut syrup

1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

Toppings:

Pomegranate seeds

Chopped nuts ( I went for chopped pistachios)

Heat a pan full of water an a medium heat. Cover it with a ceramic or glass bowl. Place the chocolate in the bowl and let it melt gently.

Place the cooked chestnut and coconut milk into a blender until smooth and creamy. Pour the mixture into a bowl and add the melted chocolate, coconut syrup and vanilla extract. Whisk everything together until is all combined together.

Pour the mousse into small pots. Place in the fridge to set for at least 2 hours. Sprinkle with the chopped nuts and pomegranate. Enjoy!
