Decadent Coconut Milk Whipped Cream with Berries and Dark Chocolate Coconut Mousse

We often say that a bowl of thick, creamy Greek-style yogurt mixed with fresh, ripe berries is a good, sensible indulgence  dessert option for those that tolerate dairy . As good as it is (especially with some macadamia nuts  tossed in), we may have just stumbled upon a dessert that bumps Greek yogurt into second place in the rich and creamy dessert category.
Spoonfuls of fluffy whipped cream layered with berries might not sound like anything new until we tell you that the whipped cream is made entirely from coconut milk  – no added sugar and no dairy.
We find that an electric mixer works best, as it whips the most air into the thick coconut cream that separates from the liquid in the can. The result is a silky smooth whipped cream that is not quite as thick as whipped cream made from whole cream, but just as delicious.
Hey, why stop there? We pushed the limits of decadence by adding four ounces of melted dark chocolate  to a can of coconut milk to create a delicious mousse. Gently stirred together and chilled, melted dark chocolate and coconut milk whipped cream creates a dish you won’t soon forget. The chocolate (the darker, the better) masks much of the coconut flavor, so if you’re not crazy about coconut we think you’ll still be crazy about coconut milk chocolate mousse.
Put the can of coconut milk in the refrigerator for several hours (or overnight).
When you open the can after it’s chilled, scrap off the solid top layer of creamy coconut, careful not to include any of the liquid on the bottom of the can. (Don’t waste the liquid left in the can – drink it or add it to a smoothie.)
Whip the coconut cream with an electric mixer until it has the airy texture of whipped cream, about five minutes.
Layer the whipped cream in a glass with berries.
For a coconut milk chocolate mousse gently mix the melted chocolate into the whipped cream. Chilling the chocolate mousse before serving will give it a thicker texture, if desired.
