Aquafaba Chocolate Coffee Mousse [Vegan]

Save Trees. Print Less. But if you must, we charge $2.99 to encourage less waste


  • 1/2 cup aquafaba (liquid from canned unsalted chickpeas), chilled
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon coffee extract (optional)
  • 2/3 cups vegan dark chocolate (70% cacao)


  1. Place a sieve over a medium sized glass bowl and drain your canned chickpeas. Measure 1/2 cup of aquafaba and place it into the fridge to chill for 15 minutes.
  2. In the meantime, melt your dark chocolate in a water bath and set aside to cool down to room temperature.
  3. Take the bowl with aquafaba out of the fridge and use a stand or electric hand mixer to beat the aquafaba on high until stiff peaks form. This can take anywhere from 5-10 minutes (good thing: you can’t over beat aquafaba so better do it a bit longer).
  4. Add in the maple syrup and coffee extract and continue beating for another 1-2 minutes. You know it’s done when you turn the bowl upside down and the aquafaba stays in place.
  5. Pour the cooled down melted chocolate into your aquafaba mix and carefully use a spatula to combine (don’t use the mixer or you’ll loose all the fluffiness).
  6. Spoon the chocolate mousse into 4 small serving bowls and place into the fridge for at least 1 hour (for extra firm results better 3-4 hours).
  7. Top with coconut whipped cream, chocolate shavings and berries and serve!

  1. Is the vegan dark chocolate in chocolate chips or some similar size pieces. It would be helpful to know the weight if one needs to use bar or large bulk pieces.
