Get ready to be blown away by this decadent mousse! We’ve taken this dessert fave and given it a flirty floral twist with the addition of lavender. Topped with the best crunchy toasted macadamias, this recipe is sure to become a fave in your household!  

Servings: 6
Preparation: 50 mins
Cooking: 5 mins

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon I Quit Sugar Gut-Lovin' Gelatin.
  • 500 ml coconut milk, full-fat.
  • 40 g cacao butter.
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla bean powder.
  • 4–6 drops liquid stevia.
  • 2–3 drops lavender essence.
  • 1 teaspoon dried lavender, to serve.

Toasted Maca Topper

  • 1/2 cup macadamias, roughly chopped.
  • 10 g cacao butter, roughly chopped.
  • 1 tablespoon rice malt syrup.

Directions

1. Dissolve gelatin in 30ml cold water and set aside, allowing it to bloom. It will become rubbery.

2. In a small saucepan on a low heat, gently heat coconut milk, cacao butter, vanilla and stevia. Remove from the heat and stir in the lavender essence. Stir in the bloomed gelatin until dissolved into the mixture. This can be done by hand or using a stick blender. Carefully pour into six glasses and place in the fridge to set for 50–60 minutes.

3. Meanwhile, make the Toasted Maca Topper. Place macadamias in a dry pan on a medium heat until toasted and fragrant, watching carefully to ensure they don’t burn.

4. Add rice malt syrup and cacao butter to the pan and let it bubble, stirring occasionally until dark in colour, about 2–3 minutes. Pour onto a tray lined with baking paper and place in the fridge or freezer to set. When set, roughly chop.

5. To serve, top Lavender Mousse with Toasted Maca Topper and a sprinkle of dried lavender.
