Ok, so let’s talk a little about sweet potatoes! I could write an essay on how delicious, versatile and great they are in both cooking, baking and desserts! Sweet potatoes have a sweet tone that can break off a savory dish in such a nice and gentle way and at the same time add a wonderful sweetness to a sweet treat. It also has a wonderful creamy texture that adds a wonderful creaminess to both savory as well as sweet treats. Not to mention that is is very nutritious and high in fiber. And last but not least, it is a true chameleon that is easy to add in dishes without you even noticing they are part of the ingredients list. So due to all of the above benefits and great characteristics I decided to make this sweet potato chocolate mousse that only requires four main ingredients! This sweet potato chocolate mousse is both easy to make, only requires four main ingredients and only requires five minutes of your time. Since the sweet potato is creamy as it is you don’t need any other ingredient for this chocolate mousse to have the creamiest of chocolate mousses. It also has the sweet base which makes it require less added sweeteners than other chocolate mousses. Not to mention that it also is both nutritious, high in fiber and filling at the same time. I served this chocolate mousse with my roasted chickpeas that I seasoned with sea salt. The salted chickpeas make a wonderful crunchy and salty contrast to the sweet and creamy sweet potato chocolate mousse. I also added fresh blueberries to add a fresh taste to it. Serve this mousse as an afternoon treat or healthy dessert…. and the best thing… no one will ever guess it is made using sweet potatoes!
A few tips:
- You can either bake the sweet potato in the oven (which I did), cook or steam it.
- If cooking or steaming you can slice the sweet potato into smaller pieces for a quicker cooking time.
- Let the sweet potato cool a bit before peeling it so you don’t burn your fingers.
- The amount fo cacao powder will depending on how rich chocolate flavor you prefer and how big your sweet potato is.
- The amount of sweetener will depend on how sweet your prefer your chocolate mousse and how big your sweet potato is.
- The amount of milk will depend on how thick/thin you prefer your chocolate mousse.
- I love topping my chocolate mousse with these roasted chickpeas, just because they add a nice salty and crunchy contrast to the chocolate mousse. But you can top it with whatever you like or prefer.
