Do you have 5 minutes to spare? You too can have this mouthwatering mousse. Mmmm! So, I'll level. Dessert is rarely on the menu in this household, but sometimes you just NEED a sweet, satisfying treat that isn't going to break the caloric bank. That's just my lot in life, really. Seek out healthier alternatives to unhealthy foods and make them taste even better than the original, prepared in as little time as possible. This recipe is such a win on all counts, your taste buds will be rejoicing in just a hot second. Note: this is the high protein, lower fat version of most other vegan chocolate mousse recipes. Tra la laa, happy strawberries and cream dance!
It's officially summer here in Arizona. Yep, we've finally broken the 90's during the day, so there's no looking back now. My recent 3 mile nightly runs are starting to get almost too difficult (and majorly dehydrating lol.) Sigh. BUT that just means that all the juicy, fantastic summer fruit are hitting the stores. Woohoooo! And I'm stocking up on the berries like you wouldn't believe. (Our poor freezer is at capacity right now. Did someone say smoothies? And homemade popsicles? Yeah baby! Ahh, I digress...)
Back to that whipped, dreamy, chocolatey mousse you've been waiting for!
Prep time: >5 minutes; soak cashews overnight
Total time: 5 minutes

I can see this being the centerpiece of your next girls' night.... or date night..... or Netflix marathon.... or just 2 in the afternoon like me. The secret is, use a really, really, reeeeally tiny spoon so when you accidentally eat all of it, at least you were super dainty about it. Is it bad that I eat almost an entire batch of Tuesday-recipes each week? ^_^ (Reasons why I call on friends as chef's assistants each week. lol)
