Looking for the best chocolate mousse recipes? Whether you are a chocolate dessert lover, or someone who simply craves something chocolaty at odd hours of the night, chocolate mousse is probably the easiest and quickest dessert that you can whip up given any time of the day. Or an unannounced guest might have arrived at your place and you need to prepare a meal within a short period. Not sure about the other courses but dessert is sorted if you have just two ingredients at home: chocolate and heavy cream. Chocolate mousse is all about folding. It’s a classic recipe that can never go wrong.
But, on the other hand, since it’s easy, people nowadays are overlooking the simplicity of this evergreen dessert by calling it common. That’s probably one of the reasons, chocolate mousse is slowly going out of style. But, fret not. We are here with the 5 best chocolate mousse recipes that you might have never heard of before.
1. White Chocolate Mousse
You might have heard about it before. Becky Hardin of The Cookie Rookie writes a perfect chocolate mousse, be it made of white chocolate or the traditional one, should be two things: light and airy, and yet deeply rich and decadent. Traditionally, in the french pastry version, egg white is used for creating volume and egg yolks for creaminess.
However, even made without the egg white and egg yolks, it’s simply a comfort food for many people. White Chocolate Mousse can also be used as a topping for prosecco and strawberry jelly. Alternatively, try white chocolate mousse with yummy macerated strawberries. It’s simply divine. Tempted enough? Get the recipe here.
2. Avocado Chocolate Mousse
Have you ever thought of combining good ol’ chocolate mousse with avocado? We are not kidding. Making traditional chocolate mousse can be a bit tedious if you are looking for perfection. But an avocado chocolate mousse is a whole new ball game.
It’s quick, easy, needs ingredients shockingly less, and doesn’t dirty beyond your food processor – so we say it’s a win-win. And why not? Dark chocolate is a powerful source of antioxidants, boosts heart health, balances sugar, and protects your skin from harmful sun rays, and avocado, on the other hand, promotes weight loss, fights cancer, moisturizes skin, balances hormones, and many more.
Avocado Chocolate Mousse, by Erin Clarke, is a powerhouse of energy. You can have it as a mid-meal snack/dessert without refrigerating it or keep it in the fridge for 3-4 hours and enjoy it after your dinner. So, without further delay, dive right into this recipe.
3. Vegan Chocolate Mousse with Aquafaba
Our vegan friends often feel left out from having many delicious foods because of their food restrictions. Whenever you go to a restaurant and ask for the dessert menu, there is a 99% chance that everything will contain eggs or gelatin. But, vegan, gluten-free dessert is not a myth.
Take Ania’s Vegan Chocolate Mousse with Aquafaba recipe from her Lazy Cat Kitchen as an example. If you aren’t aware of aquafaba, it is low-sodium chickpeas. Who would have thought that something as basic as chickpeas can yield such an amazing dessert! And, the greatest part is you can never taste the aquafaba. Serve it with some pistachio and pomegranate on top for color, and you have yourself a high-end restaurant-worthy dessert. Read the recipe now!
4. Chocolate Mousse with Tofu
Did you have to look at the heading twice before believing what you are seeing is actually right? Yes, chocolate mousse made with tofu! It’s so light, that it makes the perfect way to end a heavy meal. This dessert is vegan, gluten-free, and sugar-free. But that doesn’t mean it’s unsweetened. Now, where’s the fun in that, right? This chocolate mousse is made with natural sweetener.
According to Nadia from Nadia’s Healthy Kitchen, this recipe is made with only 3 main ingredients – tofu, dark chocolate, and maple syrup! The darker the chocolate the better. Nadia chose dark chocolate with 90% cocoa. However, if you can’t find 90%, 75% cocoa variety will also work just fine. So, without further ado, read the recipe here quickly!
5. Mango & Passion Fruit Mousse
This is the last recipe on this list, and honestly the most elaborate too. But, as we all know, patience is the key, and it tastes sweet too (in this case, literally). Mango and Passion Fruit Mousse does not exactly fall under the chocolate mousse category, but this recipe by Dominic Chapman is so delicious that we couldn’t stop ourselves. And once you follow his recipe and eat it, you wouldn’t too. It is a perfect dessert for a summer potluck.
