nourishing chocolate mousse pie

one supplement i try to sneak into our diet around every corner, is gelatin. to learn why, you can read my post about the amazing benefits of grass fed gelatin, and why it's so vital to our health. we reap the benefit of gelatin and many other nutrients by drinking our  bone broth regularly. along with that, fun treats like this one utilize the silky, whipped texture gelatin offers, while nourishing our bodies….and our sweet tooth too!

you know i like to go big…i topped this pretty lady with some homemade ice cream for extreme decadence!

im a lover of real food. i'm a lover of chocolate. and most important, i'm a lover all things mousse. 

this is what happens when my sweet tooth wins…caramel drizzle!!! and sea salt of course!

nourishing chocolate mousse pie

1 1/2 c almond flour
3/4 c grassfed butter, melted (coconut oil can be substituted for dairy free version)
1 tbs coconut sugar
dash sea salt

#dessertgoals. light, airy and whipped texture.

1 can organic coconut milk
1 1/4 c dark chocolate chips
1/2 c soaked chia seeds (soak 1/2 tbs chia seeds in 1/2 c water until gelled)
1/4 c water
2 tbs grassfed gelatin
2 tbs coconut sugar
1 tbs vanilla
1/4 tsp sea salt

combining my chocolate and coconut milk. i like to use ghiradelli brand.
*prepare the crust first. melt the butter and mix all ingredients together. grease an 8 inch pie plate or 8x8 baking dish. press crust in an even layer and bake on 350 for 12 minutes. allow to cool while preparing filling.
*in a double boiler, gently heat the coconut milk.
*add the chocolate chips and stir until chocolate is melted through. set aside.
*in a small bowl, combine the gelatin and water. set aside for five minutes for the gelatin to bloom.
*add all filling ingredients to the blender and blend until smooth.
*pour over cooled crust.
*now the hardest part…chill for at least two hours before digging in!!

go ahead…make this masterpiece! don't forget to instagram and hashtag it #MyNourishedVibes before you devour it!
