Sugar-free Chocolate-Mint Mousse & Berry Mousse Parfaits

Chocolate-Mint Mousse & Berry Mousse Parfaits An Unrefined Vegan

This dessert and I had a few go-rounds – mostly involving tofu and lots of strawberries.  All of the versions tasted good, but I just wasn’t satisfied, so I decided to go back to the drawing board one more time.  I used raw cashews instead of silken tofu, and I threw some fresh raspberries into the mix.  The result is this not-too-sweet, refreshing and creamy summer chocolate-mint and berry mousse parfait.

You’ll need:

  • Stevia-sweetened, vegan chocolate chips
  • Vanilla-flavored liquid stevia

Berry Mousse
  1. 1 cup raw cashew pieces, soaked for ~8 hours
  2. 1 Tbsp. non-dairy milk
  3. 1 cup fresh raspberries
  4. 1 cup fresh strawberries, hulled
  5. 1 Tbsp. fruit-sweetened strawberry or raspberry jam
  6. 1/4-1/2 tsp vanilla-flavored stevia liquid, or to taste
Chocolate-Mint Mousse
  1. 1 cup raw cashew pieces, soaked for ~8 hours
  2. 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  3. 1/2 cup non-dairy milk
  4. 1/2 tsp. peppermint extract
  5. 1/2 tsp stevia liquid
  6. 2 cups of your favorite granola
  7. 12 strawberries, hulled and chopped
  8. mint for garnish, if desired
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.

    I would like one of these for breakfast, and for my two desserts (one after lunch and one after dinner) because EVERY meal needs dessert!! YUM!

  3. The Healthy Flavor

    Looks delicious and beautiful! This reminds me of my strawberry chocolate mint smoothie I make. I’m in LOVE with your parfait of these flavors and so glad you used cashews instead of tofu. Yuck on tofu! This is gorgeous :)

    Oooh, this looks great! I just made a sweet cashew cream recently too, but I love the fact that you blended in fruit. It looks wonderful.

  5. tearoomdelights

    Ooh that looks good. It’s raspberry season here and I can imagine they would sit very nicely in this mousse.
