I’m not gonna lie to you since I’ve discovered that we can make a mousse with zucchini, I became addict ahah. It’s so simple to make, it’s like a dream. Here, I made it with lemon, yuzu, and matcha tea. It makes a fresh, light and not-too-sweet dessert (as I like them).

I used, white zucchini for this recipe, they have very thin skin. You can use green ones, but be sure to peel them because their skin is thicker.

I think it’s possible to make the same mousse but instead of lemon and matcha, you could use red berries. It should be super tasty too 🙂 Tell me if you try it!

It’s very important to refrigerate the dessert all night long because otherwise, you’ll have something looking like more a pudding. It’s still tasty but the texture is not the one we’re looking for 😀

So on your blender, get set, go!

I use matcha tea from Anatae. It’s, for me, the best on the market. It’s organic, harvested by hand, has no bitterness, and has the deep green color it should have (it’s not oxidized as many other matcha teas). If you’re interested to try it, you have a 10% discount with the code “THEGREENQUEST”.
