Like my Chocolate Protein Mousse, this Vanilla Bean Protein Mousse is light, creamy, and delicious!
The green color comes from avocado, which is one of the main ingredients here. It makes for such a smooth mousse. I’d like to say that you don’t taste the avocado at all, but I suppose if you particularly don’t like avocado, you’d taste it. I’m reminded of the time my Aunt Chubby (whose cheesecake you read about in my post for Aunt Chubby’s Protein Cheesecake) told me that tiramisu didn’t taste like coffee. Sure, it doesn’t taste like a strong, dark roast cup of coffee. But to a kid who didn’t like coffee, it tasted a lot like coffee!
Anyway, back to this Vanilla Bean Protein Mousse. With such a simple list of ingredients, the flavor from the vanilla bean seeds really stands out. If you’re new to vanilla beans, here is a video tutorial on how to get the seeds out.
