Serving and Storing – Serve this vegan chocolate mousse as dessert after your main course or as a mid-day snack. I like to serve this mousse with homemade whipped cream and fresh berries. Store the leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to four days.
Make in Advance - Feel free to make this mousse the day before. Just make sure to store it in the refrigerator until ready to serve. Wait to top the mousse with whipped cream until just before serving.
- Feel free to substitute maple syrup with agave nectar. If you are doing this, cut the amount in half. Alternatively, if you like a more bitter flavor, omit the maple syrup all together.
- Make sure to soak the hemp hearts for 10 minutes first so that they blend up smoothly.
- Use high quality vegan chocolate for the best flavor.
- To make this keto, use powdered Swerve and sugar-free chocolate chips. Fold in the swerve with the vanilla.
Why did my mousse not set? If the chocolate mousse did not set, then it is possible that the aquafaba deflated while folding in the other ingredients or it did not chill in the refrigerator long enough. If your aquafaba deflates, just beat the mixture again with the mixer.
Why is my mousse lumpy? If your mousse becomes lumpy, then it is possible the melted chocolate got too cool prior to folding in the aquafaba. Make sure the chocolate is still smooth and pourable before adding the aquafaba.
