This rich vegan mousse gets its silky texture and irresistible sweetness from puréed sweet potatoes. Substitute canned pumpkin or puréed bananas for the sweet potato if you like. Use this mousse as a simple pie filling or layer it with fresh fruit for an easy parfait. Watch our how-to video.
Ingredients: 
  • 3/4 cup pitted dates, soaked in warm water for 10 minutes to soften
  • 2 cups sweet potato purée (fresh or canned)
  • 2 tablespoons no-salt-added unsweetened almond butter
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened almondmilk
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons flaxseed meal
Method: 
Drain dates from soaking liquid, squeeze out any excess water and place in a food processor or high-speed blender. Add sweet potato, almond butter, almondmilk, cocoa, cinnamon, vanilla and flaxseed meal, and purée until well combined and creamy. Refrigerate mousse in an airtight container for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 5 days.

If using for a pie filling, pour mixture into a baked pie crust. Cover tightly and refrigerate at least 2 hours or overnight before serving.
