I really love experimenting with recipes. Particularly ones that consists of just a few ingredients, which you’ll more likely to have at home.

There is nothing like a mouthwatering chocolate mousse to boost your mood, am I right? Most of the recipes you’ll find online are loaded with refined sugar or are too complicated to make. That’s why I created a recipe which will blow your mind. It’s super easy AND super healthy. This mousse is going to be velvety, nutty and rich in chocolatey flavor.

One of the secret ingredients in this recipe is Tahini. Tahini is created from sesame seeds that have been soaked and crushed. It has a high concentration of healthy oils, filled with heart-healthy omega-3s. It gives the mousse a rich, nutty consistency that goes really well with the cocoa powder!

For my vegan raw chocolate mouse you don’t even need added sugar, because all we use is the natural sweetness of a banana – it’s the real deal. I throw in a bit of honey or maple syrup (for a vegan option) but that adds just a tiny amount of sugar per serving! This mouse is 100% raw, natural, free of refined sugar, gluten free and vegan. Hope you enjoy it!

  1. Hi,

    My partner unfortunately doesn’t like bananas.
    Will it still taste ok without? Or maybe increase maple syrup?


    • Hi Izzy! It won’t have as nice of a texture (or flavor) without the bananas! You could try just increasing the maple syrup, but again I’m not sure if the texture will still be off! It’s worth a shot though. If you do omit the bananas entirely you’ll have to let me know if it still works!

  2. Hello Anjali
    Thank you for this recipe. Will try it today. Have you tried any variations of this–with other fruits? If you’ve tried a strawberry /blueberry variation, can you post the recipe here? thanks for the wealth of knowledge you share here to help others and for all these delicious recipes.

    • Hi Lavanya! So yes! You can add any fruit on top of this mousse – like make the mousse according to this recipe, and add fresh strawberries/blueberries on top. That would taste great. I wouldn’t recommend adding fruits into the mousse though, I’d use them more as a topping. Let me know if that makes sense and if you have any other questions!

    • Hi Mannu, for tofu that is technically true, but since nothing is cooked when making this mousse it would still be considered “raw.” Even those following a raw food diet eat tofu. And we have honey or maple syrup listed for a sweetener so to make it vegan you’d use maple syrup instead of honey.
