Our Coco Dream 'Chocolate' Mousse is rich, silky and smooth. What's more, it couldn't be easier to make - simply add all the ingredients to a blender and blitz! Enjoy this mousse in the evening for the calming, de-stressing effects of Reishi Mushroom to help nurture a sound sleep.
What are Medjool Dates and where can I get them? 🤔
Medjool dates are a variety of dates known for their natural sweetness. They're typically larger than other dates and have a caramel-like flavour that is great for adding natural sweetness to healthy recipes.
Dates are also a great source of Iron and B-Vitamins, making them a great addition to plant-based diets as these nutrients are often hard to come by in vegan foods.
Just 1 Medjool date is enough to naturally sweeten your Coco Dream mousse and keep it free from added sugar and sweeteners 🙌
What are the health benefits of Coco Dream? 😴
Coco Dream is our superfood-enhanced healthy cocoa powder. It's a blend of Raw Peruvian Cacao, Reishi Mushroom, Ashwagandha, coconut sugar and Cinnamon.
Each of the ingredients in Coco Dream were chosen for their healthful nutrients and adaptogenic properties, helping to support sleep and naturally manage stress. As well as using in healthy recipes, you can also add Coco Dream to hot water or milk for a warming, healthy hot chocolate.

Why would I add avocado to my chocolate mousse?! 🥑
If your eyes stop and widen at the sight of avocado on the ingredients list then fear not! Just like Medjool dates are a good natural substitute for sugar, avocados are a great source of healthy fats, which add richness and a velvety texture to this mousse without the need for eggs or butter.
Avocados are a great source of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and healthy fats - and your mousse won't taste like avocado, we promise!
