Layered Pumpkin Chocolate Mousse (Vegan, Gluten-Free)

Print

This lusciously layered pumpkin chocolate mousse makes the most delicious dessert for fall and winter entertaining. It’s dairy-free, gluten-free, grain-free, vegan, and sweetened with a bit of pure maple syrup. But what I love most about it is how packed with nutrients it is!

It consists of 2 layers. The bottom is a chia pudding made with pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie spices, which is blended for a smooth and creamy consistency. If you don’t have a blender, you can mix the ingredients with a whisk until evenly incorporated and wait 10-15 minutes for the chia seeds to gel.

The second layer is the healthiest chocolate mousse, made with avocado, pumpkin puree, raw cacao powder, and Further Food Chocolate Collagen. Make sure to try it while pumpkin season lasts! You will not regret it

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

These Layered Pumpkin Chocolate Mousse make a great breakfast, snack or dessert. They are loaded with 8g of healthy fat per serving from the chia seeds and avocado and 7g of protein from the Further Food Chocolate Collagen and chia seeds. This mousse will keep you full and satisfied throughout the day and satisfy all of your chocolatey cravings!
