3 tablespoons maple syrup
½ teaspoon vanilla
Juice from half an orange (about 1 tablespoon)

METHOD

Place all ingredients in a food processor or high-speed blender. (Food processor works great.) Slowly add in a splash or two of coconut milk until the mixture reaches desired consistency, scraping down the sides as necessary. (This is a thick dessert.)

Place mousse in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes to let the flavors set before serving. Store in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. Serve in individual small bowls and sprinkle with orange zest and shaved chocolate or cacao nibs. Dig in!
