Chocolate all day long
Let’s admit: There are days where we could eat chocolate all day long. Because chocolate doesn’t ask silly questions – chocolate understands! Not only does it give you a comforting taste, cacao is also known to have positive effects on your brain.
Being refined sugar free makes this one especially healthy. The fluffy base for this mousse comes from the liquid called Aquafaba. It’s the liquid you usually find in canned chickpeas. Due to the fact that Aquafaba is high in protein you can whip until stiff just as you would do with usual cream. Look at the picture: Super fluffy chocolate mousse – you can even see the bubbles! How are we gonna make this? Let me show you!
serves 2 – Preparation time: 15 minutes + waiting time: 2 hours
2 cans of chickpeas (350g)
4 tbsp cacao powder
4 tbsp coconut oil*
4 tbsp maple syrup
How to make it fluffy
- Drain the chickpeas and save the liquid (e.g. you can save the chickpeas for some delicious hummus).
- Start by making the chocolate. Take a small sauce pan and melt the coconut oil at medium heat. Coconut oil has a really low melting point (24°C/75 °F) so don’t make it too hot.
- Once the coconut oil turned liquid you can turn off the heat and add the cacao and maple syrup. Whisk well and set aside.
- Put the Aquafaba into a large bowl and whip as you would do with any usual cream. This can take up to 5 minutes. Taking a hand mixer could come in handy 😉
- Make sure the chocolate is not too hot. It should just be warm although it should not have turned solid already. If the chocolate is too hot your aquafaba will turn into liquid and if it’s solid you will have lumps.
- Add the chocolate into the bowl with the Aquafaba and fold in the chocolate carefully.
- Fill into two jars and put into the fridge for at least two hours. Depending on the size of your jars this can be a little bit more or less.
- Enjoy! ☺️

*there are different kinds of coconut oil – if you don’t like the prominent taste of it, buy one that is mild in flavor.
