Coffee "Mousse"

I am still pretty limited with food at this point but every once in a while I want something dessert like. Nuts, honey, seeds, coconut flour, etc. are still out for me which presents a challenge. I can do butter but not too much and I am supposed to avoid egg whites but I can eat yolks. So I decided to adapt Bee's Fake Cream recipe and make a dessert out of it.

what you need:
  • 1/2 cup very hot brewed coffee (I used organic dark roast and brewed it relatively strong)
  • 1 rounded tablespoon unflavored Gelatin (I use Great Lakes)
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil (Nutiva)
  • 3 egg yolks
  • liquid stevia to taste
  • 2 cups ice cubes
what you do:
Pour hot coffee into blender. Add gelatin and blend at low speed. Add coconut oil, egg yolks, and stevia until well blended. Add ice cubes until mixture gels. With 2 cups of ice cubes it should be pretty "thick".
