Chocolate-Mint Mousse & Berry Mousse Parfaits

Sugar- and dairy-free, not-too-sweet, creamy, cool, summery and chocolatey. In a nutshell, that’s my vegan Chocolate-Mint Mousse & Berry Mousse Parfait.



Berry Mousse

Chocolate-Mint Mousse


Make the berry mousse

  1. Drain 1 cup of the cashews and put them into the bowl of a food processor. Add ~1 tablespoon non-dairy milk and process until fairly smooth. Add the strawberries, raspberries, jam, and stevia, if using. Process until very smooth, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed. Pour the mixture into a medium-sized bowl and set aside. Wash out the food processor bowl.

Make the chocolate-mint mousse

  1. Slowly melt the chocolate chips in a double boiler. Meanwhile, drain the remaining 1 cup of cashews and place them in the bowl of a food processor. Add the non-dairy milk and process until nearly smooth. Pour in the melted chocolate, and add the peppermint extract and the stevia liquid. Process until very smooth, scraping down the bowl frequently.

Assemble the parfaits

  1. Line up six tall glasses. Spoon in or pour a layer of the chocolate-mint mousse into the bottom of each glass, then top with a sprinkling of granola, followed by some chopped strawberries. Spoon in a layer of berry mousse, and again, sprinkle with some granola and strawberries. Continue in this order. Top the parfaits with more granola, strawberries, and sprigs of fresh mint. Chill parfaits until ready to serve.
