Chocolate mousse

Fruit layers

  • 1½ cups (184 g)
    fresh raspberries, for mashing
  • 2 cups (246 g)
    fresh raspberries, remaining whole


  • ½ cup (120 mL)
    vegan whipping cream
  • 2 Tbsp (28 g)
    granulated sugar
  • 1 Tbsp (7 g)

Optional garnishes


  1. Add the chocolate mousse ingredients to a food processor. Blend until smooth.
  2. To each of the serving glasses, add ¼ cup of raspberries. Lightly mash the raspberries with the back of a spoon or tamper.
  3. Reserve about ¼ of the blended chocolate mixture in a bowl. Divide the remaining between your glasses over the mashed raspberries. Place the glasses in the fridge while preparing the next layer.
  4. Add all of the whip ingredients to a large bowl. Whip with an electric hand mixer until stiff peaks form, about 7 minutes. Reserve some of the whipped cream as a topping if desired.
  5. Then add the reserved blended chocolate mixture to the remaining whipped cream and gently fold together.
  6. Remove the cups from the fridge and add some whole raspberries as the next layer.
  7. Then divide this whipped chocolate mousse between the glasses.
  8. Top with the reserved whipped cream and any desired garnishes. Enjoy!


  • Melt the chocolate in a microwave or on the stove, using a double boiler. Let the chocolate cool off a bit.


  • This dessert is best enjoyed the same day it's made.
  • Store leftovers in the fridge for up to 1 day.

Absolutely indulging. Delicious!

Made this for a friend's birthday - it is a very light yet filling dessert! No one realized it was a tofu base until I told them! The shards were a wow factor for presentation.

PUL Team - Dec. 18, 2023, 4:20 a.m.

Aw how lovely to hear, Linda! Happy birthday to your friend as well 🥳

Hi there! Just curious, what is the substitute for the melted chocolate?
Is cacao powder plus oil OK? A quick Internet search said that is a substitute, but I want to make sure that will work in this recipe.

PUL Team - Sept. 4, 2023, 4:17 p.m.

Hey Jessica, thanks for the question! We use melted chocolate for its fresh chocolate taste and creamier mouthfeel. You could likely use a high-quality cocoa powder, such as Dutch-processed cocoa powder, in place of the chocolate if desired. We're not confident about the portion size though as we have not tested it out. We hope you enjoy the mousse if you give it a try 🤗

This was so much fun to make! My friends loved it! I used a little too much whipping cream, but my friends disn't mind that at all ;)
Another awesome Vegan dessert! Thanks Pick Up Limes team!

I only wish I could have some sort of folder where I can put the recipes that I made from this app! For now I am using the 'saved' option, which also works great!

PUL Team - July 24, 2023, 5:24 p.m.

Hey Rose, so happy to hear the recipe was enjoyed! We've noted down the idea to have a feature where we can mark recipes as completed 😃 Do let us know if anything else comes up that we can support with!

PUL Team - March 7, 2023, 1:59 p.m.

So glad to hear, Lynn!

Anne - Dec. 31, 2022, 6:22 p.m.

Made these for our new year's desert and everybody loved them. Quick and easy to make, reasonably priced, looks great, especially with the caramel shards.

PUL Team - Dec. 31, 2022, 7:39 p.m.

Oh so honoured they were part of the festivities, Anne, happy new year!

Dilan - Dec. 19, 2022, 3:58 p.m.

10/10 recommend! So easy and so yum!

Nina - Oct. 6, 2022, 11:41 p.m.

Hey ❤️ can you taste the tofu or do I not have to worry about it?

PUL Team - Oct. 7, 2022, 5:01 a.m.

Hey there, Nina we find that the silken tofu has a subtle taste which allows the other flavours to shine. We hope you enjoy it if you give the recipe a try 😃

Tanya - Sept. 7, 2022, 8:06 p.m.

Made this and everyone loved it! Will be honest, I was lazy so I made only 2 layers: the choco + whip layers (didn't do the middle layer of combining) and it was sooo delicious. Wil be making it again for sure!

PUL Team - Sept. 7, 2022, 8:15 p.m.

Two layers sound equally delicious! So glad it was enjoyed, Tanya 😃

Kelly - Aug. 11, 2022, 9:26 a.m.

Hi, can I omit the cream stabiliser?

PUL Team - Aug. 11, 2022, 3:18 p.m.

Hey Kelly, the stabilizer helps the liquid firm up and keep its shape. You could omit it but the whipping cream may end up thinner and won't keep for as long in the dessert 🙂

Sandy - Aug. 7, 2022, 1:43 p.m.

This was delicious! Even made the caramel crackle. Can’t wait to try the other no bake desserts!

PUL Team - Aug. 7, 2022, 5:35 p.m.

It means so much, Sandy, and we hope you enjoy the other no bake desserts!

Puneetha - July 4, 2022, 3:28 p.m.

Hey Sadia - made this for a party over the weekend and everyone loved it. It was easy to make and turns out like its professionally made!

Thank you so much for the recipe.

So nice of you to make it for the party, Puneetha! We're so happy it was enjoyed ☺️

Thanks for sharing...

Kate - June 20, 2022, 12:23 a.m.

What cream stabilizer did you use? Thanks!

PUL Team - June 22, 2022, 3:32 p.m.

Hey Kate! The cream stabilizer we use most often is from Dr. Oetker, although anyone from your local grocery store should work fine. We hope you enjoy the mousse if you're able to give it a try ☺️

Kate - June 16, 2022, 9:57 p.m.

I made it and it came out delicious! Super fun recipe! Thank you for sharing :)

PUL Team - June 17, 2022, 7:43 a.m.

So happy to hear, Kate, thank you!

Esther - June 9, 2022, 7:46 p.m.

Hi PickUpLimes Team!
This recipe is amazing! I'm in love with all the shots in the video & here, they are so beautiful :)
I'm just wondering, why would we use melted chocolate instead of cocoa/cacao powder?

PUL Team - June 10, 2022, 10:46 p.m.

Hi Esther, thank you for the kind words! We prefer melting the chocolate for its fresh chocolate taste and creamier mouthfeel. You could likely use a high quality cocoa powder, such as Dutch-processed cocoa powder, in place of the chocolate if desired. We're not confident on the portion amount though as we have not tested it out. We hope you enjoy the mousse if you give it a try 😊

Sat - June 9, 2022, 6:17 p.m.

Hi Sadia, would you suggest any alternative to silken tofu? Any non soy option. Thank you.

PUL Team - June 10, 2022, 10:23 p.m.

Hey there, Sat, we haven't experimented with it so it may take some adjusting but avocado or creamed banana may work nicely. Do let us know if you test it out 😃

Akshera siddi - Dec. 18, 2022, 11:38 p.m.

Ya wanted an alternative for tofu. Don’t like it.
