Most days, a few hours after dinner, I tend to crave chocolate for dessert. Days where we eat an early dinner, we crave more than desserts. To avoid overeating and to stick to something healthier and satisfying, I usually will have these chocolate chia mousse in the fridge.
This Chocolate Chia Mousse is refined sugar-free, dairy-free, and packed with protein and nutrients.
I accidentally made this mousse one day when trying to see how I could enjoy chia seed pudding. Chia seed pudding is very satisfying, but I could never get past the texture. It was too “gummy” for me to eat. I would maybe eat 2-4 spoonfuls and then would have to put the rest in the fridge for another time. One day I decided to blend the chia seed pudding to see if tasted more enjoyable, and wow, was I amazed.
The texture after blending chia seed pudding resembles a mousse or parfait. I’ve made multiple flavors, and this one is my favorite for those chocolate-craving nights. It can also be enjoyed for breakfast, or even as a snack to hold you over until dinnertime.
I topped this mousse with coconut whip cream, pomegranate seeds, and toasted coconut flakes. I have previously topped with fresh strawberries or raspberries. You can’t go wrong, so pick your favorite fruit and top away before enjoying.
I hope you all love this vegan alternative to chocolate mousse!
