Blend all ingredients in a blender, adding coconut water until blends smoothly. Spoon into crusts and return to fridge to firm. I was impatient and ate mine after about 20 minutes and it was firm enough.

Chocolate coconut mousse pie (aka Mississippi mud pie)
5 out of 5

I just made this yesterday and wow!!! It was first, very easy to make and most importantly tasted amazing!! I did double the mousse recipe to fill my tart pans and then I added Vietnemese Cinnamin. yummm!! The mousse set up real quick and had a great texture. I love the crust, I will definitely use the crust for other mousses and desserts. I served my tarts with ginger ice kream. My SAD friends loved this dessert! A must try! :)
