How to make Matcha Mousse Mini Cheesecake?

Directions

  1. Start by preparing the crust. In a mixing bowl, combine flour, sweetener, and melted butter, stirring them together with a fork until well blended.
  2. Then, line a muffin tray with cupcake liners and place the crust mixture into each liner. Bake this at 325°F for 12-15 minutes, and after baking, allow it to cool for 10 minutes.
  3. Next, let’s prepare the mousse filling. Whisk together the cheesecake instant pudding, heavy cream, cream cheese, and matcha powder using a hand mixer until the mixture is well combined.
  4. Scoop or pipe the green tea mousse on top of the baked crust in each cupcake liner. Refrigerate the cheesecakes for 3-4 hours to allow them to set.
  5. For optimal results, it’s recommended to keep these green tea mousse cakes in the muffin tray until you’re ready to serve them to maintain their delightful shape.

  • Scoop approximately 2 tablespoons of cheesecake mixture (or pipe) on top of each almond crust and refrigerate for at least 3-4 hours. Keep refrigerated until ready to serve. Note - I have found that the crust stays crisper kept in the cupcake liners until ready to serve rather than in the fridge on a plate with the liners already removed.
