Chocolate Mint Mousse Pie
I love mint and chocolate. I think that combination is so delicious, especially in the form of a post dinner treat. The chocolate gives the desserts a decadent feel and the mint is just so refreshing after a meal!
Recently I posted a mint Oreo recipe where I spoke more about my love for this flavour combination (click here to read more about it)! It made me realise that I haven’t really experimented with mint and chocolate much in my recipes before, so now all I want to do is create mint chocolate recipes!
So today, I’m sharing with you this, rich, smooth and decadent chocolate mint mousse pie! A simple oaty base with a lush, velvety centre made using only 4 ingredients!
You’ll find that most mint dessert recipes, including my mint oreos, use mint extract to add the minty flavour, but I’ve found an interesting alternative way to create mint recipes.
By using mint tea bags!
This the first time I use tea bags in one of my recipes. It’s not something I’ve played around with much and to be honest I’ve never really associated tea bags with desserts and baking before. So when We Are Tea contacted me asking me to create a dessert using one of their ethical, hand-picked teas, it opened my eyes to a whole new concept and now I’m itching to create more recipes using tea bags!
Their Moroccan mint green tea was the perfect addition to this chocolate mint mousse pie recipe. I only had to use three tea bags and it added so much natural flavour. All I had to do was place them in a pan of hot coconut milk and allow the natural flavours to steep through.
This recipe is so simple and straight forward and it only calls for a few ingredients. If you want to make it even simpler, skip the crust and just pour the chocolate mousse into serving glasses. You literally only then need 4-5 ingredients (depending whether you choose to add salt) and that’s it!
This chocolate mint mousse pie is:
And so quick and easy to put together!
If you’re looking for a simple dinner party dessert, look no further! Especially now that Christmas is just around the corner. The last thing you want to be doing during this hectic time of the year is creating complex desserts with loads of steps and ingredients. It would also make a great edible gift to take with you when you’ve been invited to get togethers to celebrate the festivities with friends and family!

Well done Nadia this looks delicious 😋 will definetly have to remake this 👍🏻 carry on being AMAZING 😉💕
Simple yet stunning! I love to add tea in baking, but never thought of adding tea in chocolate…such a creative and fun idea.
Perfection on a plate! I love how tea bags are used in this recipe. The filling is a lot more natural rather than using peppermint extract!
I love this easy yet sophisticated recipe! Mint chocolate is such a classic combo and I love it even more during the holidays. That creamy mousse filling is so luxurious – must be that full-fat coconut milk (one of my favorite ingredients for desserts)!
Mint chocolate has always been a favorite for me so I’m totally in love with this! I also love how you used mint tea in it Nadia, such a great idea!
Chocolate and mint are such a delicious combination. This would make a great Christmas Day dessert.
I am not a huge fan of coconut milk except in curries but I think with the lovely minty freshness of the tea, and of course the very dark chocolate, this could change my mind. It certainly is visually very very appealing 🙂
I love the mint and chocolate combination too, and love the look of your mousse pie. The texture looks so good, I can imagine the coconut base works so well to carry the flavours, as well as giving a wonderful silkiness.
The combination of mint and chocolate has always been killer. This time i will follow this recipe and try at my home on this Christmas.
Was such a easy and simple recipe! I am putting it in the fridge to cool overnight! Hope I did everything correctly! I even have mint chocolate pieces and fresh mint leaves to decorate it like you did! :O So excited…I’ll update tomorrow for the results!
Tasted amazing! I didn’t have full fat coconut milk so the mouse was a bit runny but still amazing. And definitely use that parchment paper! Mine stuck to my pan :/ lol always follow the recipe I guess! Thanks so much for this simple yummy recipe!
So glad you enjoyed it Janel 😀 yeah full fat coconut milk is much thicker, I’m assuming that’s why yours was a little runny. Glad you enjoyed it anyway 🙂
I like this. I feel like they melt in my mouth and I like this texture. Taste is definitely amazing!
