A healthy, creamy, and delicious sweet potato chocolate mousse made with just a few simple ingredients. Dairy free. Paleo. Vegan. 


  • 2 medium sweet potatoes 
  • 1/3 cup raw cacao powder (like this) or unsweetened cocoa powder 
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp dairy free milk of any kind (I used THIS)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • TOPPINGS: berries and raw cacao nibs (like this)



  1. Preheat oven to 400’F.  Place whole sweet potatoes inside covered Dutch oven and bake for 45-60 minutes, until soft and tender. OR place whole sweet potatoes on a baking sheet and bake uncovered on 400’F until soft. Once cooked, peel and mash. 
  2. Process 2 cups of mashed sweet potato in food processor or high speed blender until smooth.  Add rest of ingredients and process until well incorporated and creamy smooth, scraping sides a couple of times. Place in fridge to chill. 
  3. Top with your favorite berries and raw cacao nibs.  Enjoy! Store in airtight glass jar in fridge for up to 3 days.
