A soft, creamy and rich vegan dark chocolate mousse – the addition of tahini to this recipe makes this fluffy and dreamy mousse irresistibly moreish and delicious.
This is a dessert that’s truly indulgent, and also just so happens to be vegan!
You can whip these up in under 20 minutes, then pop them in the fridge to set, ready to serve to your guests. This easy peasy basic recipe uses only 6 ingredients. If you want to spice things up a bit, the cacao nibs and rose petals are a nice touch, but if you can’t find them replace them with any crunchy element, like puffed rice or nuts, and other edible flowers for decoration.
You might be wondering how we get such a light and delicious mousse without cream or eggs. The secret is aquafaba, the protein rich liquid you will find surrounding tinned chickpeas. Aquafaba is a fantastic egg substitute, whipping up just like egg whites. It has a very neutral taste.
