This light & fluffy 4-ingredient vegan chocolate mousse is a plant-based recipe in disguise. Going on taste, texture, and decadence, you'd never believe this dessert is 100% vegan. It will have you swooning within its luxuriously chocolaty embrace upon first bite. Seriously. Naysayers beware, this chocolaty delight isn't playing games
Course: Dessert, Mousse
Cuisine: Gluten-Free, Grain-Free, Vegan
1 1/2cupscanned coconut cream
1/4cupraw cacao powder or cocoa powder*
2-3tablespoonspure maple syrup, to taste (I use 3)
1/3cupdairy-free chocolate chips or chopped dark chocolate
1 teaspoon vanilla extract(optional)
Melt the chocolate chips over a double boiler or in the microwave. If you melt them in the microwave, I suggest whisking in 1 tablespoon water to thin the chocolate.
Add the coconut cream, cacao powder, maple syrup, melted dark chocolate, and vanilla extract (if desired) to a large mixing bowl.
Using a hand mixer or stand mixer with whisk attachments in place, whisk the mixture on high for 3-4 minutes or until all ingredients are incorporated and the mousse is light and fluffy.
Pour the mixture into 4 serving dishes or glasses.
Refrigerate for at least 1 hour to set.
Top with fresh berries, if desired, and serve.
*If your cacao or cocoa powder has lumps in it, I recommend sifting it beforehand to ensure a smooth consistency.
