Chocolate Blackberry Mousse Tarts

Valentina

These tarts are groan-worthy. A creamy-soft chocolate mousse that melts in your mouth, coupled with a chewy base. The contrast of textures is enticing, as is the unexpected addition of juicy blackberries. These sweet morsels are entirely plant-based, healthy, and involve no cooking or complicated techniques. When eaten directly from the freezer, the fruity mousse takes on a consistency similar to ice cream.

Shopping List
    Base
  • 1 1/2 cups medjool dates, pitted (Note 1)
  • 1 cup almonds (raw or roasted)
  • 2 tablespoons raw cacao
  • 2 tablespoons vegan chocolate chips
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract Mousse
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seed butter (or preferred nut butter)
  • 1 medium-sized banana
  • 1/4 cup blackberries, chopped (plus extra for topping)
  • 1/4 cup raw cacao
  • 1/4 cup Vega Berry protein (Note 2)
  • 3 tablespoons non-dairy milk
  • 2 tablespoons vegan chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon maca (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions
  1. Step 1: Line a mini-muffin tin with liners, or use a silicon tin. A regular-sized muffin pan may also be used for larger tarts. Note: For a traditional muffin pan, 3 mini-muffins will make about 1 regular-sized muffin. That means you will have ~11 larger tarts if choosing this option.
  2. Step 2: Combine all base ingredients, except the chocolate chips, in a food processor. Mix until a sticky paste forms, about 1 to 3 minutes depending on the machine. Scrape down the sides as needed. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  3. Step 3: Roll ~2 tablespoons of the dough into small balls and place one in each mini-muffin cavity. Make an indent in the center of each using your thumb or a small bottle cap. This will create a pocket for the mousse topping. Refrigerate.
  4. Step 4: Meanwhile, add all the mousse ingredients, except the chocolate chips and blackberries, into a food processor. Blend until smooth, about 1 to 2 minutes. Fold in the chocolate chips and blackberries with a spatula.
  5. Step 5: Gently remove the base cups from the muffin tin. Use a spoon or piping bag to fill the little cups with the mousse. Top with any extra blackberry halves.
  6. Serve: Enjoy. These mousse cups are best enjoyed chilled and stored in the freezer. Place on the counter for a few minutes prior to eating to soften.

Recipe Notes

Note 1: If your dates seem very dry, soak them in water for 1 to 3 hours prior to using. Drain very well.

Note 2: Use your favorite protein powder here (a berry-flavored one is delicious). You can substitute the protein powder entirely with an equal amount of freeze-dried berries.
