Velvety, rich homemade Chocolate Mousse with raspberries and CBD oil. This Chocolate Mousse is made with heavy cream, eggs, semi-sweet chocolate, sugar, and organic Lokus™ full spectrum CBD oil.

Chocolate Mousse is the ultimate rich dessert. It’s made by whipping eggs until they are thick then adding hot cream to gently temper the eggs. The mousse then gets slowly cooked on the stove top. Semi-sweet chocolate is added to the cooked mixture. The result is a thickened chocolate base. As it cools in the refrigerator, it thickens to a stable dessert. Whipped cream is added to deepen the richness of the mousse. I like to add fresh raspberries, mint leaves, chocolate shavings, and CBD oil to finish it off as individual servings.

HOW TO USE CHOCOLATE MOUSSE

Chocolate mouse is incredibly light and ridiculously rich. It can be made a variety of ways but my favorite way is to slowly temper whipped eggs with hot cream on the stovetop. All you need to make mousse is a handheld mixer, stovetop, meat thermometer, and refrigerator. The melted chocolate and cream base of the mousse is thickened by whipped eggs which adds an incredible layer of richness and velvety smooth texture. This mixture then gets gently cooked on the stovetop to thicken it and bring the eggs to safe eating consumption.

Chocolate Mousse is thicker than pudding. Because of its stable texture, it can double as a cake or pastry filling, and well as be eaten as a decadent chocolate dessert served in a dessert jar.

HOW TO USE CBD OIL

Incorporating CBD into cooking is a breeze. I typically use the oil in non baked recipes. It’s easy to add a dropper or two as a dietary supplement to food. Lokus CBD has a mild mint taste that tastes great on its own. If you want to experiment by adding it to recipes, I suggest using it in small batches. You don’t want to cook or bake something with 12 servings right off the bat unless you plan to eat every last crumb. I stir the CBD oil into each individual serving of this Chocolate Mousse. A good way to get started using CBD in the kitchen is to add a dropper or two your serving of salad dressing or to add in this Chocolate Mousse.

I wanted to make a CBD dessert that I could share with friends. CBD oil packs a lot of health benefits from reducing inflammation and pain, to easing anxiety, and depression. Cannabidiol or CBD oil does not provide a head high which means that it’s perfect for those looking for alternative natural health benefits. Once you try it, you’ll love its benefits.

CBD OIL INFUSED FOOD

CBD is taking over the way we view medicine around the world. In the United States, it’s legal. It’s sold as oil, pills, and in many food products like tea, drinks, and baked goods. It’s even be added to products like shampoo, lotion, and candles. Yet, my favorite way to enjoy its organic all-natural health benefits is to use as an oil or in recipes. Be sure to check where you live that it is legal before buying it if you are outside of the United States. Cannabidiol comes from the hemp plant and is not psychoactive which means that it is perfectly safe to consume as part of a daily regimen.

Enjoy CBD in homemade gummies, jello, mousse, cookies, brownies, salads, eggs, hummus, lemonade, tea, keto fat bombs, protein balls, guacamole, and more.

Ingredients

  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 pint (2 cups) heavy whipping cream, divided
  • 6 ounces (1 cup) semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 33 mg Lokus© Full Spectrum CBD Oil ( about 2 droppers) for each individual serving

Instructions

  • To a large bowl, add 2 eggs, and 1/4 cup granulated sugar. Beat on high until fluffy, and thick; about 3-4 minutes. 
    Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, heat 1 cup heavy whipping cream until hot to touch or about 135 degrees F. Make sure it’s not too hot as it could scramble the eggs in the next step. 
    With the handheld beaters on low, ever so slowly, drizzle the cream into the whipped eggs. Go slow, you don’t want to scramble the eggs. This gently brings the egg temperature up to the cream temperate, a little at a time. 
    Pour the combined mixture back into the pot. Heat on the stovetop over low heat. 
    Stir continuously until thickened; about 5-8 minutes. During this time, a thermometer should read to 150 degrees F. Do not heat past this point. You may need to adjust your stove top to lower or higher the temperature slightly. If you do overheat the mixture, run it through a fine mesh strainer to remove any egg lumps. The eggs will be fully cooked at this point.
    Remove from heat, stir in 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, mixing until fully combined and smooth.
    Refrigerate 3-4 hours or until thickened. 
    Remove from refrigerator. In a bowl, beat 1 cup heavy whipped cream until soft peaks form. 
    Fold whipped cream into chocolate mousse until fully combined. 
    Refrigerate until ready to serve. 
    To serve, pour 1/3 cup chocolate mousse into a cup. Stir in 1-2 dropped of Lokus CBD oil.
    Garnish with raspberries, mint leaves, and shaved chocolate chips.

    Not legal here, but luckily it’s just a small addition at the end, which menas that I can still enjoy the mousse albeit minus the added health benefits! I have a different method for chocolate mousse in which the eggs stay raw. I’m curious to try this one.

      Yes, the oil is totally optional and left at the end as a stir in. Can never have enough mousse recipes, that’s for sure!

    My painter has been singing the praises of CBD oil for aches and pains and as a sleep aide. I’m thinking about trying it to see if it helps my autoimmune disease. Hadn’t really thought of putting it in dessert but this looks great.

    I have so many questions about CBD oil! Why is it commonly found in recipes — is there a benefit to taking it in food versus just taking a dosage per day straight? I mean, I’m all for having a reason to eat chocolate mousse everyday, but we don’t generally bake our allergy meds into brownies, so I’m so curious why CBD oil is so common in recipes!

      CBD oil can be taken as is or incorporated into food recipes. Some find it more pleasant to add to recipes as just holding oil in your mouth for 90 seconds. Also, depending on the brand, the oil flavor may be off-putting. However, Lokus brand CBD oil has a mint flavor that tastes great regardless.
