Almond butter chocolate mousse

I still haven’t been baking for a while because of the heat so today I decided to make this almond butter chocolate mousse that was really easy to make and delicious.

I like making healthier substitutions for all my desserts. When you cook your own food and make your own desserts you are in total control of what goes in so for this almond butter chocolate mousse I used nothing but healthy ingredients.

Instead of using heavy cream I used coconut cream and to keep it dairy free I also used plant based Silk Dark Chocolate Almond milk. It was truly the bomb. It was actually my first time using this version of almond milk and it was just perfect for this dessert.

I also used maple syrup which is vegan and a much healthier alternative to regular sugar. You can also use honey if you like, they both will work find for this dessert.

I like to use almond butter in place of peanut butter even though I might use peanut butter once in a while. You can use which ever you like, the chocolate mousse will still turn out perfect so if you like the peanut butter chocolate combo go for it.

I am all about making quick, no bake desserts lately and I think I will have a few more in store for you before the summer is over.

Let me know if you get to try this almond butter chocolate mousse. I hope you like it as much as we did.

Enjoy!

  1. These lemon bars are so unique! I love particularly that turmeric flavoured topping.

  2. The turmeric was a very interesting addition to the bars, but it sounds like it works. I love lemon bars, and its super cool that this recipe is a healthy version!

  3. Your lemon bars sound amazing Before I make them can u explain th high sat fat and sugar levels. For th life of me I can’t figure it out

    • The saturated fat comes from the coconut oil, but it is healthy saturated fat bc it is composed of medium-chain triglycerides and metabolized differently. They are healthy. The sugar is coming from the dates. They are sweet :-) I hope this helps!

  4. Ahh Miriam you have some exciting times ahead! Congrats!

    Random, but I love how you include a Spanish translation in your instagram feed :)

  5. I am not a fan of coconut. I wish I were. What can I use as a replacement? Or is there a replacement? Thank you and congrats on all of your upcoming projects.

  6. These look delicious! I wonder if I could sub protein powder for some of the oats, to increase the overall protein. What do you think?
