Peppermint makes this mousse very refreshing. Not only the mint, but also the spirulina powder, give it its bright green color. This is a genuine summer dessert! Spirulina algae is considered the best source of protein in raw food cooking. Quite a few vegans (as well as astronauts!) use spirulina powder daily as a nutritional supplement.
