Vegan Chocolate Mousse

  • Author: Lexi
  • Total Time: 2 hours 20 minutes
  • Yield: Serves 4-6 1x
  • Diet: Vegan


This beautiful, luscious vegan chocolate mousse is surprisingly simple - you just need six ingredients (one of which is aquafaba!).


  • 1 cup aquafaba (liquid from a can of chickpeas)
  • 1/2 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1 cup caster sugar (or fine cane sugar)
  • 3/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract (or vanilla bean paste)
  • 13 oz dark chocolate, melted
  • Topping: Vegan whipped cream, shaved chocolate, raspberries, rose petals


  1. Chop dark chocolate and transfer to a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave in 20 second intervals, stirring well between each interval, until completely melted. Set aside to cool.
  2. Add aquafaba to a stand mixer and start beating on high. After about 5 minutes, add cream of tartar and continue beating until stiff peaks form (total, this takes about 10 minutes). Add sugar, salt and vanilla and continue beating until well incorporated.
  3. Gently fold in cooled dark chocolate using a spatula. Don't over-mix, otherwise it will start to deflate. Transfer mousse to serving vessels and refrigerate 1-2 hours - until set.
  4. Garnish as desired with vegan whipped cream, shaved chocolate, raspberries and rose petals (optional). Enjoy!
