Is this chocolate mousse actually healthy?

It sure is! This vegan chocolate mousse includes just 4 ingredients: cacao powder, coconut milk, coconut butter, and dates. Combined in a food processor, these ingredients make a rich chocolate mousse that’s The Myers Way® approved. Here’s a few benefits of each ingredient:

Cacao powder

This powder is packed with powerful antioxidants known as polyphenols. Polyphenols have been shown to reduce inflammation, lower cholesterol, and help support balanced blood sugar.

Coconut Cream & Coconut Butter

Lauric acid found in coconut is thought to support healthy immune function, while medium chain triglycerides provide a quick source of energy because they’re absorbed quickly into your bloodstream. Be sure to purchase your coconut cream in a BPA free can.

Dates

This fruit is a natural sweetener which also provides a creamy texture to this smooth dessert. They’re high in potassium, magnesium, and fiber, are a good source of antioxidants, and don’t negatively impact blood sugar levels.
