This easy vegan chocolate mousse dessert is by far one of my favorite healthy sweets to have! It’s creamy, silky, fluffy, and rich but it is also protein-rich and heart-healthy.
Easy Vegan Chocolate Mousse
Chocolate mousse has been my favorite dessert ever since I can remember. I just love the fluffy, yet smooth texture and of course the rich chocolatey taste. I have tried to recreate a perfect vegan chocolate mousse recipe for a while now. It is never fluffy enough, silky enough, and most of the time it just turns out like chocolate pudding haha. So believe me when I say that I’m STOKED to share it with you all!
This easy vegan chocolate mousse is definitely a “fancy-restaurant style” chocolate mousse without the actual work. It is so easy to whip up and usually takes about 10-15 minutes of actual labor to get it prepped. This is the perfect dessert for birthdays, Valentine’s day, or any just a normal day of the week 🙂 It’s also high in protein and low glycemic, just look at these ingredients:
Tips and Substitutes:
Silken tofu: This is where the protein comes from and it also provides a great silky texture so I don’t recommend substituting it. You can find silken tofu at almost any grocery store like Safeway and Costco.
Dark Chocolate: I love to use 70% cocoa dark chocolate. I recommend using good-quality chocolate for this recipe because it is the main star. I love using the brands Beyond Good or Hu for a great, vegan, and sustainable option.
Coconut cream vs Avocado: This is where the fat component comes in. Coconut cream is a saturated fat and avocado is monounsaturated/polyunsaturated fats (the healthy kind). If you’re watching your cholesterol I recommend using avocado for this recipe. However, coconut fat in moderation is a-okay!
Sweetener: Agave or maple syrup is the best choice for this recipe. Those with diabetes can use monk fruit (same amount) or 1-2 tablespoons of stevia.
