Veggies First Then Dessert: Vegan Chocolate Mousse


VEGAN CHOCOLATE MOUSSE

Did you ever think you'd see a vegan chocolate mousse recipe, that is dairy, gluten, soy, AND egg free?! Well that day has come.

If you've had a filling meal, but your sweet tooth is calling to you, then this dessert is the perfect finishing touch. It's fluffy and airy, but deliciously chocolaty, so it will satisfy even the biggest sweet tooth, without making you feel weighed down.

While traditional chocolate mousse is made with heavy cream and eggs, this one uses aquafaba, an amazing product that can replace eggs in so many things. As well as dairy in this mousse!


WHAT IS AQUAFABA? 

Aquafaba is actually just the liquid from a can of chickpeas. It couldn't be easier to turn it into fluffy, whipped peaks either. Just add it to a stand mixer, and whip it like you would heavy cream or egg whites. In fact, whipping aquafaba is easier, because you don't have to worry about chilling the bowl or beaters, or over-whipping it, because aquafaba can't be overmixed!

HOW TO MAKE IT

Place chocolate and non-dairy milk into a microwave safe bowl, and microwave  for 40 seconds. Stir until chocolate and milk are completely mixed and smooth; set aside. Add the aquafaba to a bowl and whip till soft peaks form. Add the vanilla, powdered sugar and chocolate mixture to the aquafaba, and stir gently with a rubber spatula until incorporated. Pour into serving bowls, cover, and chill in the refrigerator for at least three hours.

Easy, right?! It takes less than 15 minutes from start to finish to prepare it. The hardest part is waiting for it to set up.

Don't throw those chickpeas away once you drain the liquid off either. I'll be sharing some amazing recipes for them soon!

Vegan Chocolate Mousse

Ingredients

1 cup aquafaba (liquid from canned chickpeas)
7 3/4 ounces semi-sweet baking chocolate, chopped
2 Tablespoons vegan powdered sugar, or to taste
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

Place aquafaba to the bowl of a stand mixer, and process on high until soft peaks form. (Whipping the aquafaba can take up to 10 minutes. Don't worry about whipping it to long, because aquafaba can't be over-whipped.)
Add chocolate mixture, powdered sugar, and vanilla to whipped aquafaba, and gently stir together with a rubber spatula, until everything is incorporated.
Pour into small dessert bowls, cover, and refrigerate for at least three hours, or preferably overnight.
Serve with your favorite toppings.

NOTES:

  • This mousse is VERY rich. I made 2 1/2 servings out of it, but when I make it again, I will divide it into at least 3 servings!
  • 1 - 14 ounce can of chickpeas should equal about 3/4 cup of aquafaba. Save the chickpeas for another recipe. (Recipes using chickpeas coming soon!)
  • Make sure your mixer bowl and beaters are very clean, as any greasy residue will prevent aquafaba from whipping to stiff peak stage.
