Make brownies if haven’t already. Allow to cool, then crumble until you get 1 cup worth. Save the rest of the brownies to devour later.
Take the can of coconut milk out of the refrigerator/freezer and open it. Using a spoon, remove the harder white thick layer from the top and put into a blender, reserving the clear coconut water for a later use if you want. It makes a great addition to smoothies!
Add in the cashews, dates and cacao powder and blend until smooth.
Wash and slice strawberries.
Layer in 8 ounce mason jars or container of choice. Start by putting 1/4 cup of brownie crumbles at the bottom of each container, then add 1/4 of the mousse mixture in each cup, then add 1/4 cup strawberries. Repeat. You can also layer any way you prefer as well. Leave out the brownie layer if making raw.
Soak nuts overnight if not using a high speed blender, but if crunched for time, soak in warm water for at least 2 hours or boil for 30 minutes.
You can use another type of date, but taste for sweetness level and adjust amount since different dates have different tastes.
Tips to prep ahead: Make brownies if using. Soak cashews.
Baby/toddler food idea: Great sweet treat for littles! You can omit brownies and use more fresh strawberries for a wholesome and healthy kid treat. For a baby you can even puree the strawberries and mix in a bit of the coconut cream for a dose of healthy fats.
