Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup chickpea brine
  • 1 cup sugar free chocolate, stevia sweetened ,melted

Instructions

  • Filter the chickpea brine from a 400 g can (14 oz) of chickpea. You should get 2/3 cup of liquid from the can. It does not have to be precise +/- 2 tablespoon is fine.
  • Place the chickpea brine into a large mixing bowl and using an electric mixer whisk on high speed until a stiff peak forms. Proceed as if it was egg white. 
  • In another bowl, add the chocolate chunks. Place this bowl on top of a larger bowl filled with boiling water and melt your chocolate by stirring the chocolate slowly. When fully melted, remove the bowl from the bowl of boiling water. Set aside.
  • Stir in the fluffy chickpea mixture into the melted chocolate, adding the fluffy mixture 1/3 cup at a time. Stir until fully combine and no white bites appears.
  • Fill glasses with the chocolate mousse and refrigerate one hour.
  • Enjoy with extra grated chocolate, fresh berries, nuts or coconut.
Storage: keep well in the fridge up to 3 days. Cover the top of each glasses with plastic wrap to avoid the top to dry out
Chocolate: any chocolate can be used, sugar free chocolate sweetened with stevia, milk chocolate or dark chocolate>85% are healthy keto options.
Melting chocolate: you can melt the chocolate in the microwave or into a saucepan. Like for any chocolate mousse recipe your melted chocolate must be in a bowl at room temperature <40C. That is why I prefer to use the fancy French 'au bain marie' method to melt my chocolate. Read more here for the perfect technique.
Chickpea brine: you can keep the brine up to 4 days in the fridge before using it in this recipe. I keep mine in an airtight container. No need to bring the brine to room temperature before whisking it. It gets fluffy even if it is very cold. 
Fancy add ons: you can add 1/8 teaspoon chilli flakes to spices up your mousse or ground cinnamon or vanilla extract or mint extract. Decorate with mint leaves, fresh raspberries, coconut, chopped nuts or more grated chocolate.

  1. Can u recommend a good food processor in which I could make almond butter at home ? I have tried magi mix , but it does not work . Thanks

    • Hello ! Sure. I love to use Kitchenaid High performance blender, this is the most powerful and works for soup, cake batter and smoothie too. I found this works better than any food processor cause the blade is smaller, run faster and it create nut butter very quickly. I hope it helps. Enjoy ! XOXO Carine.

    • If you use dark chocolate chips they are dairy free. Carob chips will be a great option too ! Enjoy the mousse. XOXO Carine.

  2. Has this caused any digestive upset for you (being chick pea brine and all)? I know what happens when I eat beans. The lectins in the beans causes terrible digestive upset for me.

    • Not at all, I am fine with this, the liquid contains ‘nothing’ only trace of nutrients, so there is no reason they should upset your guts. If it does, make sure you consume in moderation. XOXO Carine.

    I had good success with slowly drizzling the melted chocolate into the whipped aquafaba while the mixer was still running!

    • Thanks for your feedback! Enjoy the mousse and all the delicious recipes on the blog. Happy to have you here. XOXO Carine.

    I tried it. It’s delicious. However, I did have a problem with it. I don’t know what I did wrong. I melted the chocolate, but when the mousse was completed I put it in the fridge and all the chocolate hardened. What did I do wrong? Any tip? Oh! I added some organic sugar (from crystallized organic cane syrup) as the baking chocolate I bought was unsweetened.

    • This recipe doesn’t use sugar that is why your mousse hardened so much. It has to use lightly sweetened chocolate like 85% or 70% cocoa. Also, it still a less airy mousse than a regular french mousse. A new texture to get used to. Try again with the chocolate I suggested. refridgerate for a short time like 1 hour if you prefer the texture less dense as well. Enjoy the recipe. A bientot. XOXO Carine.

    This really works. I was shocked something like the water from chickpeas would thicken although it took awhile. The mousse was terrific and only 2 ingredients. I I’ll do this one again.

    • YES! so happy to tried it and love it too. It is amazing how many things you can make with chickpea liquid! Enjoy the blog recipes and thanks for testing my recipes. XOXO Carine.
