140 grams 70% Dark Chocolate Chips ⅓ cup Almond Milk or other plant based milk 1 cup Aquafaba from two cans of chickpeas 1-2 tbsp Maple Syrup ½ tsp Vinegar ½ tsp Vanilla Extract
In a bowl place the chocolate chips and almond milk. Microwave and stir at 30 second intervals, until smooth. In a large bowl, add the chickpea water (aquafaba) and vinegar. Whip with a hand-held mixer for about 10 minutes until stiff peaks form. Add maple syrup and vanilla extract and whip again until well combined *aquafaba can't be overwhipped so keep going until you achieve a stiff texture. Gently fold the aquafaba into the melted chocolate with a spatula. (It's normal if the aquafaba deflates a bit). Transfer to serving glasses and refrigerate for at least 2 hours so the mousse can set. Remove from the fridge, garnish with coconut whipped cream and some fruits on top.
I recommend placing the aquafaba in the fridge for at least 10 minutes before you start. because it tends to whip up better
You can adjust the amount of sweetener to your own taste.
