Body Ecology's sugar-free and guilt-free healthy chocolate mousse tastes as good as the real thing. Our light and fluffy chocolate mousse is made with zero-calorie Lakanto sweetener, which does not leave an unpleasant aftertaste.

The desire for sweet-tasting foods and drinks is quite normal. In fact, our very first food, mother’s milk, was warm and sweet, and we’ve formed an emotional bond with this taste, so avoiding sweets is not the answer! But as you know, refined white sugar or corn syrup is poison, and even natural sweeteners like agave and honey will feed yeast and make your body more acidic. Body Ecology recipes use sweeteners like Stevia and Lakanto so that you can make sweet treats for you and your family that actually taste like they are made with sugar. Even though traditionally we like to eat desserts after a meal, it’s best to eat them separately on an empty stomach. And when you eat them, please drink a fermented beverage as well.
Try our flavorful, fresh, and healthy red slaw. (It's good for your gut.)

We've learned from experience. Our chocolate chip oatmeal cookies don't last long.
1. Combine 2 cans coconut milk, Lakanto, agar flakes, dark cocoa powder, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and sea salt in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil.
2. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
3. Pour the chocolate mixture into a 2-quart dish and stir in the coconut oil. Let cool at room temperature for 15 minutes. Refrigerate until set.
4. Optional: Sprinkle with soaked and chopped walnuts before serving.
This delightful mousse is not only delicious, it’s dairy-free! And for a twist on an old favorite, try adding dried orange peel in step 1.
Warning: This gut-friendly fermented beets recipe is downright addicting.
