Dark Chocolate Pomegranate Mousse With Coconut Cream #SundaySupper

Rich Creamy Dark Chocolate Mousse infused with pomegranate topped with some pomegranate seeds is a decadent dessert indeed! The fact that I used coconut cream only makes this even more decadent and actually healthy. If you’ve never dabbled with coconut cream, you must give it a try. Wholesome all natural coconut cream adds a unique flavor to any dish. I use coconut milk in my cooking and smoothies, but in my desserts I use the heavy coconut cream from a can.  Ok, now back to the topic (when I talk about coconut I can get carried away)!  My Sunday Supper team is doing a Valentine’s Day theme and I wanted to cook up something with some love elements in it so I decided to make this dark chocolate mousse with pomegranate. Chocolate is the ultimate love treat! As for pomegranate, don’t take my word for it, It is a culinary symbol of Aphrodite (goddess of love) in ancient Greece. Anyway,  leave aside these love properties, the tart pomegranate and slightly bitter dark chocolate go well together as I realized after I made this mousse. I used bottled  pom juice, but I can imagine how good this would taste with fresh pomegranate juice.  It is tart, sweet with just a hint of bitter-sweet chocolate. It’s quite a gourmet treat but simple enough that my kids liked it too! Oh yes, I must not forget to mention one of the reasons I love this holiday is because my husband of 17 yrs proposed to me on Valentine’s day 17 yrs. back :)!! Enough reason to celebrate especially with dark chocolate pomegranate mousse!



Nutrition Wise!

Chocolate, especially dark gives you a high dose of antioxidants and magnesium.The cocoa solids in dark chocolate contain healthy compounds called flavonols. These have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.Pomegranates are full of antioxidants. These are compounds and enzymes known for keeping low-density lipoprotein (LDL) or “bad” cholesterol from oxidizing and causing atherosclerosis, or hardening of the arteries. Pomegranate seeds act a lot like aspirin, keeping blood platelets from sticking together and forming dangerous blood clots.  Eating the seeds and drinking pomegranate juice can increase oxygen levels to the heart.
