Easy Chocolate Protein Mousse (vegan, gluten-free)

Make this easy vegan chocolate mousse that is full of protein and made with only a few ingredients with no added sugar! It has a great thick, fluffy mousse texture, and is delicious.

Ingredients (makes 2-3 servings):

1 cup dark chocolate chips, melted (I used these chocolate chips, which are sweetened with dates)

¼ cup chickpeas

¼ block extra firm tofu

1/2 cup warm soy milk

½ cup aquafaba (liquid from a can of chickpeas)

1 tsp vanilla

Optional: 1-2 tbsp liquid sweetener to taste (ex: maple syrup, honey, agave)


1. Add tofu, soy milk (warm so it doesn’t make the chocolate solidify), chickpeas, vanilla, and melted dark chocolate to a blender, and blend until smooth. If your chocolate chips are unsweetened or if you want a sweeter mousse, add 1-2 tbsp of liquid sweetener as well.

2. Pour the aquafaba into a bowl and whip with a hand mixer until frothy (takes about 5 minutes).

3. Slowly add the blended chocolate mixture into the whipped aquafaba, and combine until you have a fluffy, evenly mixed mousse.

4. Refrigerate for at least one hour, then serve and enjoy as is or with toppings!
