Vegan Protein Chocolate Mousse

So this recipe was inspired by 2 awesome vegan friends who have made this chocolate mousse before. I have added some protein (l-glutamine which is good for gut health, muscle recovery and is immunomodulatory), basically so that I can have chocolate mousse as post-workout with my breakfast… Because really – why ever not?! If you are vegan, check your glutamine source, most are wheat-derived, and are gluten-free.

It is dead simple. And drop-dead delicious! I am not vegan, but I respect and value a lot of vegan principles like basing your diet predominantly on plants. Don’t be scared by thinking this is going to taste like avo, it really isn’t!
:) … So here is a “mid-week-I-need-chocolate-pick-me-up”!
