Aquafaba Dark Chocolate Mousse

 

Prep Time 5 minutes

Cooking Time 15 minutes

Yield: 6 servings

Ingredients:

1 cup aquafaba  (liquid from 15oz can of unsalted chickpeas)

3 oz dark chocolate chips (finely chopped)

1 tbsp soy milk (or milk of choice)

2 tbsp maple syrup

1/2 tsp cinnamon powder (optional)

1 tsp lemon juice or apple cider vinegar (optional)

Procedure

1 – In a double boiler, melt the chocolate with the milk, then whisk to combine. Set aside to cool.

2- In the bowl of a stand mixer combine aquafaba liquid, maple syrup, cinnamon and lemon juice. Make sure the bowl and utensils are completely free of grease for the aquafaba to whip properly.

3- Using the whisk attachment, whip the mixture until reaching stiff peaks (about 8 minutes). The aquafaba should not slide from bowl when it’s ready.

4- Once the chocolate has cooled completely, fold about 1/3 of the aquafaba foam into the melted chocolate container to soften the chocolate, then gently fold this mixture into the remaining aquafaba foam as desired. The mixture will deflate a little bit.

5- Pour into 6 small bowls. Cover and chill in refrigerator.

6- Top with cacao nibs, shaved chocolate, toasted shaved coconut, pistachios or any fruit of choice.
