Coconut Mousse Dessert Shots

Tonight's dinner was a Multiply Meal--Chicken Blanco. I wanted a little dessert, so I stayed with the white theme and made some creamy little dessert shots with coconut.

I love toasted coconut, and was lucky enough to find unsweetened coconut at my regular grocery store last weekend. Usually, I have to make a run to Whole Foods to get that. These are nice big flakes too. Here is the recipe I came up with using my bullet style blender. I am out of liquid sucralose right now, so I used Splenda packets. Use whatever sweetener you like.

Coconut Mousse Dessert Shots

1/3 cup heavy cream
2 Splenda packets
4 ounces cream cheese
4 tablespoons Vanilla DaVinci syrup
3 Tablespoons coconut flakes

1. Lightly toast the coconut flakes.
2.Use the bullet blender to whip the cream. Put whipped cream into a small bowl and add one packet of sweetener and 2 Tablespoons of syrup. Stir well.
3. In the blender, whip together the cream cheese, one packet of Splenda and the remaining 2 Tablespoons of syrup. Once this is well blended, stir in 2 Tablespoons of coconut.
4. Gently blend the cream cheese mixture with the whipped cream.
5. Alternate tiny bits of coconut and mousse in dessert glasses. End with a sprinkle of coconut. Makes 3 dessert shots.

This dessert was quite nice. It is so nice to have portion control with my shot glasses. I probably would have eaten the whole batch.

The other day I was rummaging around at the Goodwill for stuff, and found the prettiest small martini least, I think that is what they are called. The ones that are V shaped, with a longish decorative stem below. I couldn't find any shot glasses.

Anyway, there were only 2 of them, and I got them for 10 cents each...just because YOU inspired me to make pretty SMALL desserts.

So I am looking forward to trying out this recipe (I can put the extra serving aside for later).
