This is so good, and such a great way to use up the juice off that can of chickpeas, incase you hadn’t noticed I’m all about the chickpeas at the moment, while they last anyway, then I’ll move onto something else!
The recipe is one I found on Pinterest from Blooming Nolwenn.
What your going to need here is:
1 Tbsp lemon juice
2 Tbsp maple syrup
1 cup of aquafaba, chickpea juice!
200grm dark chocolate -54% cacao. (I used Lindt 85% as its what I had)
Now your going to put the lemon juice, maple syrup and aquafaba in a mixing bowl and whisk for about 10 mins on med to high speed.
The mix will become stiff peaks and not fall when you tip the bowl upside down.
(Put it over your head and try it! I dare you! )
While this is whisking away in the stand mixer you can put the chocolate into a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water to gently melt.
take of the heat once melted, when the aquafaba as formed stiff peaks slowly fold in the chocolate, you will loose a little volume here but its going be ok!
Place the mousse into your preferred ramekins or dishes and place in the fridge to set, about 3 hrs or longer, decorate how you wish and enjoy!
* I added some wild orange essential oil to the mix and it was just delicious!
So off you go, don’t waste that chickpea juice ever again, I can’t believe It took me so long to try this!
Happy days and chocolatey hugs!
Love cupcake xx
One thought on “Vegan Chocolate Mousse – using aquafaba.”
