Amazing vegan peppermint chocolate mousse, the best texture vegan mousse you’ve ever had! In just 5 ingredients too!



  1. Open a can of chickpeas and drain the water out of the can and into a mixing bowl.
  2. Add the Cream of Tartar.
  3. Starting at low speed allow the mix to become very foamy and then gradually increase the speed.
  4. Let the mixer run until your chickpea brine and cream of tartar mix has reached the stiff peak stage (as pictured above). This can take up to 15 minutes.
  5. Add the powdered sugar and whisk again until well mixed.
  6. Melt the chocolate by placing it in a heat proof dish over a pot with some boiling water.
  7. Fold the melted chocolate into the whipped aquafaba mix being careful to incorporate it slowly, folding it in gently.
  8. Then add the peppermint extract.
  9. You will notice that the aquafaba mix collapses a little once the chocolate and peppermint extract are mixed in, don’t worry about this, it’s fine.
  10. Pour equal amounts of chocolate mousse into serving glasses and place into the coldest part of your refrigerator to set for an hour or two.
  11. Serve with whipped coconut cream and grated peppermint dark chocolate.
