Aquafaba Chocolate Mousse


Aquafaba in Latin means – the water in which chickpeas have been cooked.

Many vegan recipes use aquafaba as an egg replacement.

It doesn’t taste like chickpeas at all!

I love to create new recipes with different ingredients, and this is how this recipe has been created.
