Vegan Chocolate Mousse | High Protein

This soft and silky vegan chocolate mousse has a sensational chocolate flavour combined with a thick and creamy texture. I have prepared the recipe as one serving, however it is a big serving and quite rich, so it can easily be divided into two servings for the double the yum!

Unlike most mousse recipes, this vegan chocolate mousse does not require any whipping, beating or electronic kitchen devices that require cleaning (can I get an amen?). You will only have a bowl, spoon and measuring utensils to wash up after making this delicious chocolate mousse.

What makes this vegan chocolate mousse so good?

Besides the fact that you can make yourself a high protein, refined sugar free and dairy free treat in just two minutes, what makes this vegan chocolate mousse so good?

A delicious, smooth and creamy vegan protein powder is absolutely vital in this recipe. In fact, the protein powder is the single most important ingredient in this recipe. If your vegan protein powder is grainy and off tasting then this recipe will not work!So which protein powder do I use for this recipe? Macro Mike chocolate almond protein. It is definitely the best vegan protein powder I have ever tasted. You can buy it here. 

Is Vegan chocolate Mousse healthy?

With a high amount of protein, no refined sugar, gluten, dairy or preservatives, this is the healthiest alternative to regular chocolate mousse that you could possibly have. A little bit of healthy fat from the peanut butter is also a spectacular addition to the nutritional profile of this dessert, providing energy and fuel for your brain and body.

Trust me, once this divine chocolate mousse hits your lips, you will want to make this recipe every single day and why wouldn’t you?

What do you need to make this Vegan chocolate Mousse?

  • Vegan chocolate protein powder
  • Cacao powder
  • Powdered stevia. I blast regular granulated stevia in the nutribullet to turn it into a powder.
  • Maple syrup 
  • Natural smooth peanut butter (no added oils or sugars)
  • Almond milk (or any milk of your choice)
  • Celtic sea salt
  • Toppings of your choice (suggestions below)

What are the best toppings to use?

Keep in mind that toppings are completely optional, but highly recommended. Toppings really give this healthy mousse the WOW factor. My suggestions for keeping it healthy are; cacao nibs, paleo granola, toasted coconut, chopped roasted nuts, berries, dark chocolate or a drizzle of nut butter.

If you are looking for something a little more indulgent, why not try some marshmallows, white chocolate, caramelised nuts/honey coated nuts, wafers or a chopped chocolate bar/maltesers.

How long does it take to make this recipe?

Honestly, you can add everything to a bowl and combine it into a mousse in just two minutes. From there it’s up to you whether you serve the mousse straight away or store in the fridge to set for 1-2 hours to thicken and chill. 

Instructions for making vegan chocolate mousse:

  • Combine all dry ingredients in a small mixing bowl. 
  • Add peanut butter, maple syrup and almond milk.
  • Mix everything together until smooth. This part requires a little elbow grease.
  • NB: You may need to add slightly more or less almond milk, depending on the protein powder you use. 
  • Transfer the mousse to a glass jar or serving bowl. I like to use these glass jars for smoothies, cheesecakes and raw desserts like this one.
  • Add toppings and serve straight away or set in the fridge for 1-2 hours before serving.

  • Combine protein powder, cocoa powder and stevia in a mixing bowl.
  • Add peanut butter, maple syrup and almond milk. 
  • Mix everything together until smooth and transfer to a serving glass or cup.

  • Serve straight away or set in the fridge for 1-2 hours for an extra thick and cold vegan chocolate mousse (my preference).


*Use any milk of your choice in this recipe.
Be careful not to add too much milk. You can always add more milk if the mixture is too thick but if you add too much, the mousse will be runny.

You might also love my single serve keto chocolate brownie recipe, which you can find here. It is easily made vegan by using coconut oil instead or butter or ghee (noted in the instructions) and your choice of vegan friendly/dairy free chocolate chips.

    Loved this recipe! So easy to make and tasted delicious! I used white wolf brand protein as it is what I had in the cupboard and left it to set in the fridge 👌

    1. Great to know that the White Wolf protein worked in this recipe. I tried their salted caramel vegan protein a few years ago and loved the flavour. Thanks for commenting :). xx
