Simple Quintessential Cuisine

Nutella Mocha Mousse

Last Sunday was all about cooking. I set aside the day and made multiple dishes. The show stopper however was this Nutella Mousse, made with hazelnuts and cream. I have to admit, I’ve never really been impressed by Nutella, but this dessert has changed my mind. This recipe is adapted from Micheal Symon’s Hazelnut Mousse on the Cooking Channel. I altered the ingredient amounts somewhat since I am trying to be waistline conscious, but fear not as this dessert packs a full-bodied mocha flavor that you simply can’t get enough of! Enjoy

You will need..

1/3 C Nutella

1/4 C Toasted Hazelnuts

1/2 banana, sliced

1/3  C + 2 Tbsp heavy cream

1/2 tsp coffee powder

chocolate syrup



In a small bowl beat together Nutella, coffee powder ( I used a Starbucks packet) and the 2 Tablespoons of heavy cream.

In a separate bowl pour in the 1/3 cup of heavy cream and whip until stiff peaks form. ( Tip- place your bowl in the freezer prior to beating the cream.  The chill of the bowl cuts the whipping time in half)

Next begin gently folding the whipped cream into the Nutella mixture until they are fully incorporated.

Line the bottom of your dessert cups with banana, then sprinkle with half the hazelnuts.

Spoon the mousse over the bananas taking care to place equal portions into each cup. Sprinkle with remaining nuts and drizzle with chocolate syrup.

Chill till ready to serve.  This makes 2 generous servings

During the winter, Sunday is indeed my cooking day. Saving this for a cooking day – when there are lots of people around so I don’t make four helpings for two people! Nutella and mocha together is a happy sigh of contentment.

Nutella, banana and mousse- perfection!
We may just have to feature this one xo

I would never have thought to add bananas to mousse. Very interesting, thank you for sharing.

I am obsessed with Nutella! This mousse sounds delicious. You you put it over fruit, so that means it is good for you, right?
