Cardamom and coffee chocolate mousse

When I told you I loved chocolate mousse I wasn’t kidding. I loved how simple it was to make, how light it felt and how healthy it was. Well, there is another (avocado one) that I would love to try.

We are heading to Spain on Sunday (I’m writing it on Friday), I’m not packed, the workweek was really thought that my neck is so stiff, I don’t have a clue what food should I eat there and our social life is blooming, today we are having friends over, tomorrow we are visiting other friends. So I’m sure that you can guess I’m not up for proper cooking and baking.

Maybe that’s just a sign I should wing it and not worry too much about details.
This mousse is super simple, you just need to chill the coconut milk overnight. It’s a little bit lighter than chestnut pots, but a little bit more fragrant as well.
