Healthy Chocolate-Orange Mousse Cake (from pumpkin!)

Who doesn’t like chocolate and especially a rich chocolate cake? It is hard to believe, but a favourite treat can be done very healthy, as well as ver quickly, if you follow our recipe! A secret “base” ingredient in this dessert is a squash, but trust me, nobody will ever guess that it is inside! It is very important to use the right type of squash (muscat), because it is one of the sweetest pumpkin types available. In fact, muscat squash will be your best companion if you decide to experiment with sweet pumpkin dishes. 

To achieve the right texture of your cake make sure that you steam the squash, instead of boiling it or baking. Apart from that – there are no special secrets, as the recipe is surprisingly easy! Enjoy your cooking process and don’t forget to share the result with the loved ones, as sharing chocolate is the best way to make them happy!

Chocolate mousse:

  • muscat squash – 2 cups (ca. 500 gr.)
  • raw cocoa powder/chocolate – 3 heaped tbsp

  • orange zest – from 1 medium-sized orange (try to use organic orange)

  • honey (or liquid sweetener of choice) –


  • 1 cup almond flour

  • 1 cups oat flour (you can also take 2 cups of oat flour or 2 cups of almond flour only, depends on your taste preference and availability!)
  • 1/2 cup raisins

  • 1/2 cups dates

Step 1. Peel the squash, remove seeds and cut in cubes. Steam it until ready (ca. 20 minutes).

Step 2. Let the steamed squash cool down. Then process it in a food processor along with chocolate, orange zest and sweetener of choice. Put in the fridge to set.

Step 3. Prepare the crust: process all ingredients together in the food processor, until it forms a smooth dough.

Step 4. Press the dough into the cake mould. Take the squash mass out of the fridge and spread evenly on the top of the crust.

That is it, your cake is ready! The beautiful thing about this recipe is that you don’t even need to keep it in the fridge overnight, but can start indulging straight away – we promise, it will taste amazing.
