1cup(280 g) coconut yoghurtSee Note 4
Place the finely chopped chocolate into a medium-sized heatproof bowl.
Over medium heat, add the milk to a small saucepan. Bring the milk just to a boil. Pour the milk over the chocolate and leave it to sit for 1-2 minutes.
Stir with a spatula until you have a smooth, glossy ganache.
Using a spatula, fold the maple syrup, orange zest and yoghurt into the chocolate mixture until thoroughly combined.
Spoon the mousse into four glasses or small serving cups and chill for about one hour until firm.
Refrigerating the mousse produces a firm set. Remove the mousse from the refrigerator 15-20 minutes before serving to soften the texture.Serve with some berries, additional coconut yoghurt and shaved chocolate.
Dark chocolate: use the best quality vegan chocolate possible. I use dark chocolate that has 70% cocoa.
Soy milk: you could also use almond milk or dairy milk if you do not require the recipe to be vegan.
Tablespoon: we use a standard Australian tablespoon which is 20 ml (4 teaspoons).
Coconut yoghurt: if you do not require the recipe to be vegan, you can also use Greek yoghurt.
