Notes

Healthy Chocolate Mousse Variations
  • Cinnamon: Add a sprinkle of cinnamon on top for a warm spiced flavor.
  • Cocoa Powder: If you craving even more deep chocolate flavor, add a dusting of cocoa powder on top.
  • Nut Butter: If you don’t have tahini, try swapping it for creamy peanut butter or almond butter, or even cashew butter!
  • Peppermint Extract: Chocolate and mint are one of my favorite combinations. Add in a ½ a teaspoon of peppermint extract. The combination is amazing! 
  • Chocolate: Sprinkle some chocolate shavings on top of this vegan chocolate mousse. Yummy!
  • Chia Seeds: You can add them in ground, or right after you blend the mousse - before you put it in the fridge. Adding them whole gives the mousse a different (but still delicious) texture!
Top Tips For Making Vegan Chocolate Mousse
  • The longer the chocolate mousse sets in the fridge, the better it will be. I like to allow it to set overnight when I have planned in advance.
  • There is no need to over-mix the mousse when you are blending it. Once it’s smooth and creamy, then you are good to go. 
  • Make this vegan chocolate mousse ahead of time, and transfer it into single-serving containers with airtight lids. Refrigerate for a quick snack or grab and go treat. Each recipe makes 6 servings.
