Vegan Chocolate Mousse

Alas we come to the last weeks of summer. My has time flown by! With Labor Day festivities upon us, there is no better time to pack up a romantic picnic with your loved one or friends and head out on a hike or to the beach! My favorite part about living in Colorado is how much there is to explore here, and there is no one I would rather explore with then my boyfriend Jeremy. We love any excuse to get outside especially if there is a delicious picnic involved!

Pack your basket with light bites such as cheese, meat and crackers, along with a tasty dessert. This vegan chocolate mousse is to die for, and the perfect dessert to pack for a picnic! Not to mention how nice nicely it pairs with La Crema’s Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir.

This recipe is very simple, but does take time and patience. Though it is dairy free, it is so incredibly delicious that any dairy lover will not notice. Top the mousse off with fresh fruit such as raspberries or strawberries. This is also a great dessert to be served at any Labor Day weekend party. Put a scoop in an individual mason jar to serve and pair with La Crema Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir. See more from this romantic picnic on The Every Hostess!
