This orange infused vegan chocolate mousse will send your taste buds straight to Christmas heaven! You will love the combo of orange and chocolate.
I am not a big fan of winter. It is true. I am the one that always has the cold feet, always back pain because I walk through the streets like a Zombie when I am freezing and I most certainly catch the flu at least 3 times during winter season.
Let’s talk about the things that I like about the cold season.
Baking with Christmas Spices
Speaking about Christmas infused desserts, I would love to introduce you to my new favorite.
Orange infused Chocolate Mousse
It is a combination of 3 main flavors that I really love and these are cinnamon, chocolate, and Orange. The mousse does not require any kind of baking skills or whatever, you really just need to combine and blend ingredients.
If you don’t feel comfortable with the idea of using avocados in your chocolate mousse you should try my super light and fluffy 3-ingredients Aquafaba Chocolate Mousse
