Aquafaba Chocolate Mousse

Aquafaba Chocolate mousse

Made from only 5 ingredients!

One of the ingredients is Aquafaba – from Latin, the water in which chickpeas or other pulses have been cooked, used as a substitute for egg whites, particularly in vegan cooking.

Don’t be afraid to use it, It doesn’t taste like chickpeas at all!

I love to experience with ingredients and this is how this recipe has been created.

You can change the cocoa butter and cocoa powder mixer to a melted chocolate bar, and reduce the amount of sugar in the recipe.
