INGREDIENTS, (SERVES 4)

Breakfast – Berry Overnight Oats Recipe

METHOD

Refrigerate the tin of coconut milk overnight, (24hrs)

Once chilled, open can and pour the coconut milk into a bowl and leave to one side.

Scoop the coconut cream into a mixing bowl, (you may have to remove both ends of the can for this).

Using a mixer, (one mixing tong should work well to mix) mix the coconut cream until it starts to form a whipped look. If the cream is too tick add a small amount of the coconut milk.

Add the coco powder and mix in with a spoon before mixing with the mixing tong, (this is to stop the coco powder from escaping from the bowl!).

Add the Maple syrup and vanilla and mix, (add a small amount of the coconut milk if the mixture is too thick but remember that the creamy thickness will add to the finished dessert).

Divide the mixture evenly into three small ceramic dishes and chill for 24hrs/overnight or bottomless metal moulds.

If using metal moulds, place the mould on a plate and fill with the chocolate mousse.

Place in the refrigerator for 24hrs/overnight.

Once chilled remove from the refrigerator and carefully remove the metal mould.
