Mousse Au Chocolat

What you need for 4 servings:


  • 120 g dark chocolate
  • 2 EL oat milk
  • The water from a can of chickpeas
  • 1 Pk cream stiffener


  • high bowl
  • blender/ hand mixer
  • large Bowl
  • 4 small glasses


Step 1-Melt

  • Break the chocolate into small pieces and place in a bowl. Fill a slightly larger bowl with hot water and place the bowl with the chocolate in it and let it melt. 
  • Add 2 tablespoons of oat or other plant milk and stir.
  • Now let the chocolate mixture stand in the water bath until it is needed in the 3rd step. 
  • Little tip: If you have another person there, steps 1 and 2 can be done in parallel :)

Step 2- Beat

  • Collect the water of the chickpeas (aquafaba) with the help of a container and sieve (by the way, you can make a delicious hummus from the chickpeas, you can find the recipe here).
  • Now whip with a mixer first on low and then on high speed.
  • After about 1 min add a packet of cream stiffener and whip for another 7 min.


Step 3- Fold and chill 

  • Pour the chocolate mixture (hand warm) into a large bowl and add 1/3 of the whipped aquafaba and gently fold in. Once the mixture is well blended, add another 1/3 and continue folding. 
  • Finally, fold in the last 1/3 aquafaba and divide among 4 glasses.
  • Now refrigerate the mousse for at least 3 hours.

By using aquafaba instead of egg whites and cream, you just saved 85% on emissions. Hurray!
