matcha mousse

White chocolate matcha mousse with white chocolate whipped cream, topped with black sesame brittle.

White chocolate matcha mousse, a beautifully light and airy white chocolate mousse infused with the unique flavour of matcha green tea powder. The mousse it topped with a sweet white chocolate whipped cream. What really sets this recipe off is the black sesame brittle to top everything off. I love black sesame, it makes me think of black sesame ice cream which is one of my ultimate favourite flavours of ice cream. Black sesame has a very distinct flavour that isn’t going to be to everyone’s taste, its very distinct and earthy. It does however, go very well with matcha.

Again, I’ve said it before and I’e said it again, don’t get your matcha from the high street or the supermarket, it’s much cheaper online. The same goes for black sesame seeds, I looked everywhere and couldn’t find them in a single supermarket. I got mine online, I’ll leave the link at the bottom of the post. But if you have an Asian grocery store nearby take full advantage and grab both your matcha and your black sesame seeds there.

This delicious matcha mousse really is a must make. the unique flavour of matcha works wonderfully with the white chocolate and the black sesame. Once you get the hang of making a mousse its really easy. For more mousse recipes check out my chocolate raspberry mousse.
