Chocolate Coconut Mousse

Thanks to "Chocolate Covered Katie" for this recipe.  I modified it a little bit, as I don't like powdered stevia at all, and also I left my coconut milk in the fridge for a full 24 hours instead of just overnight.  I'm usually frustrated by recipes that require that much forethought, but trust me when I say this one's worth it.  I ate it by itself, but thought it was best as a dip for strawberries.  YUM!  I think it would be great with apples or bananas as well.

Chocolate Coconut Mousse
1 can Coconut Milk
1/3 cup Cocoa Powder
1/2 tsp Vanilla
sweetener to taste - a couple of Tbsp of Agave tastes best to me.  Liquid stevia is not bad if you need to keep it to zero calories.  I will be testing Erythritol next time.
    Open the coconut milk, dump it into a bowl and leave it uncovered in the fridge overnight.  Pour off the water that separates and you'll have super thick coconut milk left.  Mix in your cocoa and vanilla with a fork.  Add sweetener, tasting along the way until it's just right.  Eat it straight up or serve with fruit.  It would also make a nice frosting for cupcakes, as CCK also recommends.
