Sweet Potato Maple Mousse Pie [Vegan]

LIKE OGP ON FACEBOOK :
Mousse tarts have become my dessert of choice for the winter holidays. I love their creamy coolness and ease of preparation. This one will find its way onto either my Thanksgiving Day or Christmas menu. I’m terrible at making the whipped cream look pretty on top of pies, so I flipped it and put it on the bottom layer.

To Make the Sweet Potato Maple Mousse:

  3. Top pie with your favorite warm chocolate sauce, a dusting of cocoa powder, or coconut whipped cream.

I was into my 30s before I began running and working out, but I was still missing something: diet.  The animal products I was consuming were undoing the benefits of all of that physical activity.  Today my body runs on a plant-based, low-fat, low sugar diet that keeps me healthy and strong. I’m sharing – via An Unrefined Vegan - what I've learned by offering simple, delicious and nutritious recipes that nurture body, soul and conscience.
