270ml coconut cream
¼ cup cacao butter
¼ cup cashew butter
1 tbsp matcha powder
10–20 drop liquid stevia, or to taste
80g dark chocolate
In a small saucepan over a low heat, gently melt together the coconut cream, cacao butter, cashew butter, matcha and stevia. Whisk until just combined and remove from the heat.
Pour into a silicone ice cube tray or mould and place in the freezer to set for 2 hours or until frozen.
When frozen, prepare the chocolate by gently melting in a double boiler. To do this, place the chocolate in a heat safe bowl and sit over a small pot of gently simmering water. Leave to melt and whisk together. Remove from the heat when there is still a few lumps and whisk to melt together. You don’t want this mixture to be too hot.
Carefully remove each matcha mousse square from the moulds and place on a wire rack on top of some baking paper. Drizzle over chocolate to cover the frozen squares and place back in the freezer to set the chocolate (about 30 minutes). Store in the fridge.
