Chocolate Miso Mousse

matcha misoIf you haven’t yet tried pairing the umami saltiness of miso paste with chocolate, you’re in for a treat. The fermented bean often used in Asian cooking adds a flavour to cacao or dark chocolate that creates an almost salted caramel – like flavour. Coupled with the fact that miso is of course entirely more healthy than salted caramel, it’s a win-win combination. This recipe utilises plenty of superfoods to create a delicious yet very healthy dessert, breakfast or afternoon treat. Whip this up whilst the heatwave is still here in the UK and only cooling foods seem like a good idea….


serves 2

  • 1 handful frozen spinach, or 2 big handfuls fresh spinach
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1 handful frozen berries
  • 1 tsp miso
  • 3-4 dates or 1 tbsp good quality honey
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp cocoa or cacao powder
  • Optional: 1 tsp matcha powder, maca powder, or wheatgrass for a superfood boost
  • To serve: grated dark chocolate or cacao nibs & fresh berries
  • Your choice of milk, or opt for 2 tbsp coconut yoghurt for a thicker consistency


  1. For a thicker and cooler dessert, place your bowls or dessert glasses in the freezer for 10 minutes before serving
  2. Add all ingredients to a blender or food processor, cover with your choice of milk or yogurt and blend
  3. Serve with a sprinkling of dark chocolate or cacao nibs and a few fresh berries
