Prep Time:





  1. Add ½ cup of the coconut milk to a small saucepan with xylitol and gelatin. Heat on medium-low, stirring frequently, just until everything is dissolved.
  2. Meanwhile, combine remaining ingredients; including the remaining coconut milk, in the jug of your high-powered blender. Blend, just until combined.
  3. Once the xylitol mixture is complete, turn blender on to low and pour in the xylitol mixture, just until combined.
  4. Pour chocolate mousse into three 500mL jars. Allow to cool on the counter for a little while before covering and placing in the fridge for at least an hour.

Did you know MCT oil also comes in powdered form? Ya! In its powdered state, it's much easier to use, travel with, and incorporate into your favorite recipes. Plus, if you've experienced digestive issues with MCT oil before, MCT oil powder is a lot gentler on the gut. Check out my favorite brand of MCT oil powder here.


MCT Oil: I recommend using MCT oil with this recipe. I haven’t tried the recipe with coconut oil. I feel like it would work, but the result may be less fluffy.
