Chocolate Aquafaba Mousse

There’s nothing better than chocolate right? It’s one of the best soul food. This vegan chocolate aquafaba mousse is every chocolate lover’s dream. With only 4 main ingredients, it couldn’t be easier to make. This mousse is to die for, it’s firm and melts in the mouth. and I’m willing to bet the very last spoonful of this vegan chocolate mousse that you’ll love it too. That’s how certain I am.



To make it even more unique, we're whipping it up using aquafaba, which is the fancy name given to the liquid in a jar or can of chickpeas, or the liquid the chickpeas is cooked in. Basically the gist of it is that aquafaba = bean water. It’s the goopy brine/water you find in cans of beans. So all that weird bean water that you and I once use to pour down the drain actually has the ability to replace eggs in some instances. Who would have thought that something as basic as whipped chickpeas cooking water can yield such amazing results. The really cool thing about aquafaba is its ability to mimic egg whites. If you beat it up with an electric/stand mixer it will eventually fluff and form stiff peaks much like egg whites do when making meringue.



To make sure I have not gone mad and this thing doesn’t, in fact, taste vile, I made this mousse twice while a couple of our omnivorous friends were staying with us. Not only did they love the dessert, but when I was making it the second time, they watched me whip up the chickpea water into stiff peaks as they couldn’t quite believe that it is as simple as it sounds. They were so impressed and vowed to make this dessert once they get home. It’s the best compliment I could have wished for.



For the sceptics amongst you, let me re-assure you, this dessert does not taste of chickpeas at all. If I hadn’t just told you what’s in it, you would have thought that it’s an indulgent chocolate mousse, just like your grandma used to make and it’s super airy, fluffy and creamy, making it a light and chocolatey dessert that is perfect to serve even at breakfast!
