Luscious Low-Cal Treats

Light, creamy and decadent. Mocha Praline Mousse is a healthy, low-cal treat that chocolate and coffee lovers will enjoy.

Chocolate Mousse:

ricotta cheese, dairy-free (almonds / cashew / tofu)300 g
yoghurt, dairy-free, plant-based (soy, almond, coconut)400 g
soy milk, light2 tbsp
chocolate essence 1/2 tsp
cocoa powder1 tsp
protein powder, plant-based, chocolate1 scoop (30g)
black chia seeds1 tbsp
chocolate, dark, dairy-free, grated1 tbsp

Mocha Syrup:

maple syrup1 tbsp
cocoa powder1 tsp
cold water3 tbsp
coffee, instant, ground 1/2 tsp
vanilla essence 1/2 tsp

Almond Praline Shards:

stevia, granulated, (natural sweetener)4 tbsp
cold water3 tbsp
almonds, flaked1 tbsp

  1. Almond Praline Shards: Arrange slivered / flaked almonds in a thin layer onto a lined baking tray. Set aside. In a small saucepan, combine sweetener and water and stir over low heat until the sugar has dissolved.

  2. Increase heat to medium and let mixture boil without stirring for 2-3 minutes or until it has turned to a pale golden colour. (Watch closely, as it can turn dark very quickly.)

  3. When golden, remove saucepan from heat. Set aside for 2 mins to allow the bubbles to subside. Pour mixture over almonds and leave to set in the fridge. When set, break into shards.

  4. Mocha Syrup: In a small saucepan, combine water, maple syrup, cocoa powder, coffee and vanilla essence; bring to the boil. Stir frequently. Remove from heat; pour into a small jug and refrigerate until ready to serve.

  5. Chocolate Mousse: In a blender combine ricotta cheese, yogurt, milk, chia seeds, chocolate essence, protein powder and cocoa powder. Process until smooth. Spoon mousse into small serving jars / glasses or bowls. Top with mocha syrup, a little grated chocolate and Almond Praline Shards on top.

  6. TCB Tips:

    - The chia seeds, when added to the mousse will swell, giving it extra texture and flavour.


    - I suggest refrigerating the mousse for 20-30 minutes before serving. This allows the mousse to set nicely and thicken up.


    - Don't over blend the mousse as this will make the mousse runny.
