What is Aquafaba?
Aquafaba is the Latin term for the water in which chickpeas have been cooked. It can be used as an egg replacement in vegan recipes, and it doesn’t taste like chickpeas at all!

Made with chickpea water, cocoa butter and cocoa powder, this mousse is rich in flavor and has a smooth and creamy texture. It can be topped with your favorite fruits and nuts to create a personalized and indulgent dessert that everyone will love. Whether you are a vegan, lactose intolerant or just looking for a healthier dessert option, Aquafaba Chocolate Mousse is a great dessert option.
Aquafaba Chocolate Mousse Recipe
1 can of chickpeas (only the water/ 1 cup of chickpeas cooking water)
1/2 teaspoon of lemon juice
5 teaspoons of coconut sugar
1/2 cup of cocoa butter pieces
3 teaspoons of cocoa powder
Open a can of chickpeas and drain the water into a bowl.
Chill the chickpea water in the fridge for at least 10 minutes.
Using a mixer, beat the chickpea water with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice for a few minutes until it forms a thick cream.
While continuing to beat the mixture, slowly add the coconut sugar.
Melt the cocoa butter in a bain-marie until it’s completely liquid. Remove it from the heat and add the cocoa powder. Mix the ingredients well until you have a smooth and homogeneous mixture. This cocoa butter and cocoa powder mixture will be used to give the mousse its chocolate flavor. If you prefer, you can also use 70g of melted dark chocolate instead of the cocoa butter and cocoa powder mixture.
Turn off the mixer and pour the melted mixture into the bowl.
Mix the ingredients lightly using a silicone spatula.
Pour the mixture into individual containers and let it chill for at least an hour in the fridge.
Top with your favorite fruit or toppings, such as coconut chips and strawberries.
Serve and enjoy your delicious Aquafaba Chocolate Mousse!
If you prefer a stronger chocolate flavor, you can replace the cocoa butter and cocoa powder mixture with 70g of melted dark chocolate. Simply melt the dark chocolate in a bain-marie, let it cool slightly, and then add it to the whipped chickpea water and sugar mixture. Mix lightly and follow the rest of the instructions to make your delicious Aquafaba Chocolate Mousse.
