Biscuit Base Maple Mousse Cake

I enjoy having dessert from time to time. But I rarely make anything in advance, I prefer to whizz up something just when I feel like it. So that means I need something that can be made quickly and easily.
That is when recipes like this come in handy!

Biscuit Base Maple Mousse Cake
 
Of course its not really biscuits, nor cake.
More like a yummy treat that is inspired by cheesecake!
 

To make 2 servings you'll need:
 
For the biscuit-style base:
     2 Tablespoons hazelnuts
     2 Tablespoons cashews
     1 Tablespoon chia seeds
     2 Tablespoons oat milk (or other plant milk)
     1 Tablespoon cacao
     1 teaspoon stevia (or other dry sweetener)

Combine in a mini food processor and process til nuts are crumbly and mixture has thickened and holds together well.
Line the base of 2 servings glasses with the biscuit base and press down gently.
 

For the mousse:
     150g soft silken tofu
     1/2 teaspoon vanilla essense
     2 Tablespoons pure maple syrup
     1 Tablespoon ground flax seeds

Combine in a mini food processor and process til smooth and thick.
Scoop mousse on top of the biscuit base.

Serve with fruit of choice.

If stored in the fridge this will thicken even more..... If you can wait that long!

  1. I'm all for speedy desserts, especially on weekdays. We usually end up drinking frozen fruit smoothies for our desserts (with chia seeds thrown in for added goodness)
    I love the sound of your maple mousse cake. I've never used silken tofu in a dessert. Will have to give it a try!
    Here's wishing you a fab weekend! xx

  5. Looks lovely, I do like the idea of all those tasty nuts in the base, so much better than all those cheesecake bases that just have crushed biscuits.

    1. For the large majority of our easy dishes like this I use a mini food processor that I picked up for $15 at Target! been so worth it! And it doesn't take up a huge amount of cupboard space like larger ones :-)
