Recette : mousse choco-noisette avec confiture de petits fruits - La Boite à Grains

Be warned, this dessert can be highly addictive: creamy and 100% plant-based, you won't be able to resist it for long! The accompanying chia seed jam is an excellent alternative to store-bought jams, which generally contain far too much sugar. This mousse recipe is quick to prepare and requires no cooking, so you get all the nutritional benefits of chia! This recipe can be endlessly reinvented by simply changing the fruit or adding certain spices. Why not make an apple-cinnamon or mango-turmeric jam, for example, or add vanilla, ginger or cardamom? The only limit is your imagination!


  • 2 cups homemade almond milk
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon well-packed agar-agar flakes
  • 1 1/2 cups 70% dark chocolate pieces
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract or ground vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 cup hazelnut butter

To prepare:

  1. Pour almond milk into a small saucepan. Add maple syrup and agar-agar. Bring to the boil, whisking constantly. Reduce heat. While continuing to whisk, simmer for 5 minutes or until the agar-agar has completely dissolved.
  2. Remove the pan from the heat and add the chocolate, vanilla, salt and hazelnut butter. Blend until smooth.
  3. Pour the cream into the bowl of a blender. Blend for a few seconds. The final texture will be lighter.
  4. Pour into resealable jars and refrigerate for at least 4 hours. To serve, garnish with chia jam.

Chia jam

Ingredients: Chia jam
3 tablespoons ProactivChia
1/4 cup maple syrup
2 cups frozen berries, thawed

To prepare:

  1. In a bowl, combine ProactivChia and maple syrup, and let stand a few minutes. Mash berries with a fork. For a smoother jam, process fruit in a food processor.
  2. Pour the fruit into the bowl of ProactivChia and syrup, stir and let stand for 2 hours in the fridge to allow the chia to form a jelly.
