Chocolate Mousse – Aquafaba!

Aquafaba Chocolate Mousse

Yield: 6 servings
Active Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 2 hours


6 ounces dark chocolate
1 (15-ounce) can unsalted chickpeas
¼ cup granulated sugar
¼ teaspoon cream of tartar
¼ teaspoon sea salt or to taste
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Pinch ground cinnamon
Granulated Coffee – for mocha flavor


Whipped coconut cream
Cacao nibs or toasted almonds
Fresh berries
Mint leaf


Melt chocolate in a double boiler, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat, transfer to a large bowl, and let cool slightly.

Drain chickpeas, reserving the liquid (or aquafaba) and saving the beans for another use. This should provide about 3/4 cup liquid.

Place in a clean mixing bowl and the sugar and let sit for 10 minutes to dissolve the sugar. Add cream of tartar and salt.  

Use a hand or stand mixer and beat on high until soft peaks form.

Whisk in vanilla.

Gently fold 1/3 of whipped aquafaba into chocolate, and then fold in the rest in two more equal portions.

Divide mixture between 6 small ramekins or serving glasses. Cover with plastic wrap and let set in fridge for 2 hours. Garnish before serving.
