Easy chocolate mousse with aquafaba

This recipe for mousse au chocolat is quick and easy to make and only requires 4 ingredients.

  • You will need about 125ml aquafaba, which is about the liquid from a can of chickpeas.
  • You will also need 100g of melted dark chocolate. This should be of particularly high quality because it brings flavor to the mousse. Allow the chocolate to cool slightly before using.
  • Finally, a pinch of salt and 2 teaspoons of stevia. Alternatively, you can use regular sugar.
  • First, whip your aquafaba as you would egg whites. This works best with an electric hand mixer in a tall, narrow container.
  • After a few minutes, small peaks should appear. Now add the salt and stevia powder and mix for another 30 seconds.
  • Now take a spoon and carefully fold in the melted chocolate. Be careful not to stir too vigorously as this will destroy the air holes in the mousse.
  • Pour the mixture into portion-sized containers, cover with cling film and leave the mousse to rest in the fridge for 30 minutes. Your vegan mousse au chocolate is then ready to be eaten.

Baking meringues are also vegan

Vegans don’t have to do without the indulgence of small, bite-sized meringues. Aquafaba makes it possible!

  • For this recipe, you will need 100ml aquafaba, 3 tablespoons sugar, ½ teaspoon vanilla essence, ½ tablespoon cream of tartar, and ½ tablespoon lemon juice.
  • In a small bowl, using an electric hand mixer, beat the drained water from the chickpeas.
  • After 2 minutes on the highest setting, gradually add the remaining ingredients, starting with the sugar.
  • Then continue to mix for about 5 minutes.
  • Fill the mixture into a piping bag and form small mounds on a baking sheet.
  • You can now let them dry in an oven at 100 degrees for a few hours. Make sure to leave a crack in the door with a wooden spoon.
  • Alternatively, you can let the meringues dry overnight in a dehydrator at the lowest temperature.
  • You should then store the finished meringues in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
