matcha white chocolate mousse


yay to more matcha!! i am kind of becoming obsessed with the combination of green tea & white chocolate, the two flavours compliment each other perfectly. the sweetness of the white chocolate helps offset the earthiness of the green tea. i am a huge white chocolate lover, even though it is technically not chocolate. growing up my sisters would each get a giant milk chocolate bunny at easter & i would get a special white chocolate one! after making that delicious white chocolate matcha cake, i wanted to do a lighter style dessert featuring the same flavours. mousse is quite an elegant dessert to serve if you are hosting any type of gathering. serving individually portioned dessert at the end of a dinner party makes it much more classy. the mousse itself features aiya matcha's cooking grade matcha powder & white chocolate, while the whipped cream topping is sweetened slightly with additional white chocolate. i topped it with toasted coconut flakes & a touch of matcha powder, but you can top the mousse with anything you like! fresh berries anyone?


for the white chocolate matcha mousse

  • 1/4 cup + 1 1/2 cup whipping cream
  • 4 ounces white chocolate, roughly chopped
  • 1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon matcha powder (i used aiya matcha cooking grade)
  • 3 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

for the white chocolate whipped cream

  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 2 ounces white chocolate, melted & cooled
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup toasted coconut, for topping


  • for the white chocolate matcha mousse: in a saucepan on low heat add 1/4 cup whipping cream, chocolate, 1 tablespoon matcha powder, sugar & vanilla. whisk until chocolate has fully melted & mixture is smooth. let cool to room temperature. in a mixing bowl add the remaining 1 1/2 cups of whipped cream & whisk until soft peaks are formed. slowly fold in the matcha mixture & the remaining teaspoon of matcha powder until mixture is streak free. pipe or layer into desired serving dish & refrigerate to firm up while you make the whipped cream topping.

  • for the white chocolate whipped cream: in a mixing bowl whisk white cream until soft peaks. add chocolate, sugar & vanilla. continue to whisk until stiff peaks form. pipe onto the matcha mousse & sprinkle with toasted coconut/matcha powder. refrigerate until ready to serve!
