How to make chocolate mousse
To make these mousse jars you want to begin by blending together the almond butter, syrup and cashews. For the cashews they will need to be soft, in order to blend. To achieve this you'll need to soak the cashews overnight and then drain them before blending.
However, if you're short for time and can't soak any cashews, cashew butter/paste will work well here also.
Then heat together the chocolate and milk in a microwave for 30second intervals and pour into the cashew mix and blend again.
Chop your strawberries into small squares and divide them equally into the bottom of each jar.
Then spoon the mousse on top of the strawberries and gently tap the jars on the counter to remove any air bubbles.
Set in the fridge for 1-2hrs in the freezer. And enjoy!
If you didn't want to make this mousse vegan simply substitute the vegan chocolate for normal dark chocolate and the plant based milk for normal whole milk.
Chocolate for mousse ?
My favorite vegan chocolate I'd recommend for this mousse is NOMO chocolate or conscious chocolate plain. However, you can also opt for flavored vegan chocolates to customize your mousse.
If you don’t want to make this vegan I’d recommend dark chocolate so its not overly sweet.
Is this chocolate mousse vegan ?
Yes, it's are completely vegan and gluten free. And does not requiring any cooking or baking and therefore, is also Paleo friendly too!
What other variations of mousse can I make with this recipe ?
This recipe would also be fantastic to make chocolate mousse filled strawberries, instead of layering the mousse on top of strawberries!
You can also easily substitute the vegan chocolate with vegan white chocolate in this recipe for white chocolate mousse.

Seems like a quick and easy recipe! Any recommendations toppings to put in?
Hi Tracey, yes it may be the quickest mousse recipes you'll find! some ideas for topping for this mouse could be a ganache which is essentially equal parts chocolate to double cream - which can be easily substituted for vegan alternatives. Another great classic topping is a piping of cream sweetened with some icing sugar.
I love easy and tasty recipes and this one checks both.
I'll make it with dark chocolate and honey. Maybe maple syrup?
Oh, and I love the strawberry combination.
Nice pictures, BTW!
Thank you so much Mayra, yes dark chocolate and maple syrup/honey are great substitutes! They'll work perfectly
