For Dark Chocolate base - In a bowl, add 1 cup of water, chia seeds, organic cacao powder, and dates & mix well. Soak it for around 20-30 minutes or until chia seeds bloom and the mixture becomes thick.
In a Vitamix, blend the above mixture until smooth and creamy. The chocolate base is ready
Whip the chilled coconut cream with the help of beater, do not over whip it. (Just about few seconds).
For Mousse – gently fold in the dark chocolate mixture into coconut whipped cream. Mix until everything combines, do this process very slowly & gradually to keep it light and fluffy. Over mixing or whipping will knock out the air.
Plating: In a serving bowl/cup – add a big dollop of Dark Chocolate Mousse at the bottom. Layer it with fresh raspberry compote. Repeat; add a big dollop of mousse over the compote. Again layer it with raspberry sauce. Repeat this for a total of 3-4 times/layers. Refrigerate these cups for couple of hours.
Garnish it with fresh raspberries, coconut cream, and more berries compote. Enjoy this chilled.
