Hazelnut-Chocolate Mousse with ProactivChia-Berry Jam

Prep Time 25 minutes + 4 hours
Cook Time 8 minutes
Servings 6 small ramekins

Warning: this dessert is highly addictive! Prana's founder has fallen hard for it too. And for good reason, considering how decadent this hazelnut-chocolate mousse is. It's rich, creamy, and 100% vegan - we guarantee you won't be able to resist it. The mousse is accompanied by a delightful chia seed jam, which is a great alternative to store-bought jams that are often full of sugar. It's quick to prepare and requires no cooking, which means the chia seeds retain all of their nutritional value. This recipe can be tweaked in an infinite number of ways simply by changing up the fruits used or by adding different spices. Why not try making an apple-cinnamon jam, or one with mango and turmeric? Or add vanilla, or ginger, or cardamom? The only limit to this recipe is what you can dream up. Prana's ProactivChia is an ideal choice for making the jam.
