  • 140 grams 70% Dark Chocolate Chips
  • 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.
