Chocolate Mousse Cake

  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Cook Time: 50 minutes
  • Total Time: 65 minutes
  • Yield: 6 " round cake 1x


This insanely decadent Chocolate Mousse Cake may taste like fudge frosting but is made from just a few healthy whole food ingredients right in the blender!




  • 2 cups almonds
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp water (if needed)


  • 1 cup baked and mashed sweet potato
  • 1 cup Medjool dates
  • 1 1/2 cups non-dairy milk
  • 1/3 cup cacao powder


  1. Grind the almonds in a blender until they resemble a fine meal.
  2. Add the maple syrup and blend until you have a clumpy mixture. Add 1 tbsp of water if necessary so that it sticks together when pressed.
  3. Place a piece of parchment paper in the bottom of a 6 inch spring-form pan. Press the crust evenly into the bottom of the pan. Set aside.
  4. Preheat the oven to 350F.
  5. Combine all the mousse ingredients in a blender. Blend on high until very smooth and creamy.
  6. Pour on top of the crust and smooth the top.
  7. Bake for 45-50 minutes at 350F.
  8. Remove from the oven. Cool, then refrigerate overnight.
  9. Serve chilled from the fridge with berries or whipped cream on top!
