Beet and Chocolate Mousse Cake [Vegan Gluten-Free]





Cook Time



For the Beet Base:

  • 1 heaping cup beet, peeled and chopped
  • 1 1-inch slice creamed coconut, cut into small pieces
  • 1 tablespoon coconut nectar
  • Seeds from 1-inch piece of a vanilla bean
  • 2/3 cup gluten-free oat flour
  • 1/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons golden flax flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon psyllium husk

For the Mousse:

  • 1 package silken tofu, drained
  • 1 cup vegan chocolate chips
  • 1/2 teaspoon coconut oil
  • Seeds of 1 vanilla bean


  1. Place all ingredients into a food processor fitted with an “S”-blade and process them until the ingredients are well combined.
  2. Spoon the mixture into a lined, 9×5-inch cake pan then press down the mixture with the back of a spoon. Place it in the refrigerator.
  3. Melt your chocolate chips and then add a 1/2 teaspoon coconut oil and vanilla.
  4. Stir the mixture together until coconut oil is melted.
  5. Once it’s melted, place everything in a high-speed blender and blend the mixture until it’s smooth and creamy.
  6. Pour the cream over the beet base, cover it with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
  7. Remove it from the tin, slice it straight away, separate them with parchment paper so they don’t stick together, and store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 4-5 days.
