Another Amazing Recipe by Roslyn

Fluffy, Healthy Chocolate Mousse From Aquafaba (Garbanzo Bean Water)

I kind of freaked out when my daughter said I could make Chocolate Mousse with the water from the can of garbanzo beans.  She hadn’t actually tried it yet, so I had to!  It makes a super light and fluffy Chocolate Mousse,

Open a can of garbanzo beans right now and pour the contents into a strainer over a bowl.  See that liquid?  It’s called aquafaba, and when you beat it, it whips up like egg whites!  WHAT?! Here’s everything you need:

  • 1 can garbanzo beans
  • 3 T  honey, agave or pure maple syrup (some people like more – but this is just right to me!)
  • 1/2 C melted dark chocolate
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract, or 1/4 tsp mint or almond extract
  1. Melt the 1/2 C chocolate, then let cool a bit.
  2. Beat the aquafaba till it whips up nice and fluffy – this takes LONGER than with egg whites.
  3. Add in the chocolate, agave and extract and fold in with a spatula till no streaks remain.  Remember to FOLD, not beat or stir so it stays fluffy.
  4. Pour into serving dishes.  Mine filled 5 – 6 oz ramekins.
  5. Chill at least 3 hours.

Enjoy just as it is, or top with fruit!

If you use agave or pure maple syrup as a sweetener, this makes a delicious vegan dessert.  It’s gluten free, has no processed sugar, and you don’t have to worry about consuming raw eggs either.

We enjoyed this so much!  It’s a super light version of Chocolate Mousse and stays fluffy for a couple of days in the fridge.  It’s so easy to make, your kids can do it while you sit on the couch and relax – for three hours while it chills.

Good idea.
