Paleo Chocolate Mousse:  An Extreme Chocolate Experience


For serious paleo chocolate lovers, this Paleo Chocolate Mousse is especially for you. I am right there with you in the need for a rich, decadent chocolate treat now and then. I’m not talking about avocado-chocolate-pudding. Nope, gotta step it up a notch to satisfy me. I want a chocolate dessert to be lavish, and ultra-creamy, with incredible swirl-around-my-tongue mouth feel, and unbelievable depths of intense chocolate flavors. This Paleo Chocolate Mousse recipe fills the bill. After tasting a bite, you may close your eyes, let out a groan, and not believe you are eating a paleo inspired dessert. It is, you are, and you’re welcome!


This Paleo Chocolate Mousse sets up best if it is poured into individual parfait bowls, custard cups, or other shallow dishes. It also looks very elegant poured into champagne flutes. It is perfect served plain or you could garnish it with a few berries or a sprig of mint.


Paleo Chocolate Mousse


  • Prep time:  15 minutes
  • Cook time:  5 minutes
  • Servings:  6


  • 2 TBS. butter
  • 2 TBS. (rounded  TBS.) shavings of 100% cocoa butter
  • 2 TBS. unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 4 squares unsweetened chocolate (I used Ghirardelli 100% cacao unsweetened bar)
  • ¼ cup organic maple syrup, plus
  • 8 drops liquid stevia (if you would like to use only maple syrup, increase it to 1/3 cup and omit stevia, if you would like to use no syrup and only stevia, increase the stevia to 20 drops and omit  the syrup)
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp. dark rum (optional)
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 can (14 oz) full fat coconut milk
  • 4 egg yolks


(Payton’s Paleo 30 Day Challenge friendly if made without rum and with only stevia for sweetener.)

1) In a heavy sauce pan, on a low setting, add all the ingredients except the coconut milk and the egg yolks, stirring continuously with a rubber spatula until melted and mixed smooth.

2) When the chocolate mixture is smooth, add the coconut milk and turn up the heat to medium-low while stirring. When the mixture is heated up and you can see some steam coming off it, it is time to mix in the egg yolks, on low-speed, using a hand mixer.

3) You don’t want to heat the mixture up on too high of a temperature or the chocolate will be grainy and the egg yolks may curdle. Don’t rush and you will be fine.

4) Keeping the pot over the heat, beat in egg yolks with a hand mixer. Continue to beat while cooking on medium-low for 5 minutes.

5) Pour mousse into desired glasses, dishes or shallow pan or dish. It takes about 4 hours for the mousse to set up well. Enjoy! Paleo Chocolate Mousse is positively out of this world decadent.
