Chocolate Mousse - Trainer vs. Health Coach

When one of my favorite bloggers and my favorite trainer posted versions of the same recipe, I knew I had to try both and compare.

Share the Health’s Chocolate Pudding vs Katherine Greiner’s Vegan Chocolate Mousse

I tried Sara’s “chocolate pudding” first because it required slightly less ingredients:

Chocolate “Pudding”

  • ½ cup nut milk (I used homemade almond milk)
  • 1 ripe banana
  • ½ avocado
  • 1 tablespoon raw cacao powder
  • 1 Medjool date, pitted
  • pinch of cinnamon and sea salt

Directions:

In a high-speed blender or food processor, add all ingredients and blend until smooth.  Transfer to a small bowl and place in the refrigerator for 10 minutes to cool.  Top with goji berries.


Katherine’s Vegan Chocolate Mousse

– 1 ripe avocado
– 2 ripe bananas (preferably frozen)
– 2-4 tbs raw cacao powder
– 1-2 dates (pitted)
– 1/2 inch real vanilla bean, or 1 tsp vanilla extract
– splash of almond, rice, soy milk – add as needed to achieve desired consistency

Blend all ingredients in blender or food processor – sprinkle with coconut and cacao nibs. Serve, and enjoy!

Verdict: Though both look like chocolate mousse, neither taste like chocolate mouse. 1 – 4 tablespoons of raw cacao powder give the look of chocolate, not the taste unfortunately. Nevertheless, the taste is still delicious. I ate the entire bowl in one sitting both times.

Bottom line: I liked Katherine’s Vegan Chocolate Mousse a little bit better. The extra banana and vanilla extract made this creation a little sweeter and more dessert like. Next time your sweet tooth kicks in and you are looking for a healthy substitute, I recommend both of these recipes!
