I found this on Pinterest. It came from the Chocolate Covered Katie Blog. You could also make this vanilla by not adding the cocoa and adding a little vanilla or vanilla bean. I made it and it is scrumptious! I sweetened with stevia and powdered erithritol, and I did use beaters to whip. Can't imagine it would be as fluffy with a fork as suggested.

Chocolate Mousse Frosting

(or just chocolate mousse)
■1 can full-fat coconut milk
■1/4 cup plus 1 tbsp cocoa powder
■1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
■sweetener to taste (Use stevia or powdered sugar for thickest results.)

Open the coconut milk, and leave the can (or transfer to a bowl) uncovered in the fridge overnight, unless itís already thick like mousse. (Donít shake the can before opening.) It should get very, very thick. (If it doesnít, youíve gotten a bad can that wonít work for the recipe. I highly recommend Thai Kitchen Organic, because Iíve had the most success with that brand.) Once thick, transfer to a bowl (you can opt to leave out the watery bit at the bottom of the can, if you want it even thicker) and whip in your cocoa, vanilla, and sweetener with a fork, or even beaters if you want to be fancy. Stored uncovered in the fridge, the mixture gets even thicker.
