A chocolate mousse that's dairy free, egg free and so good you won't feel guilty enjoying it after dinner? YES PLEASE. Chocolate mousse is a dessert whose pleasure lies as much in it's theatre as in its flavour. And if you can spoon your way through a bowl without making a happy mess all over your face, then you're probably not enjoying it as much as you should be. But what could be better than a classic chocolate mousse? This dairy free, egg free, foolproof Chocolate Mousse!
Why you will love this Dairy Free Chocolate Mousse
How to make this Dairy Free Chocolate Mousse
What I like, no wait. What I LOVE about this recipe is that it only has 5 ingredients (not including any garnishes) and you don't need any fancy tools - just one mixing bowl and one fork (or a whisk), and it sets in the fridge after a couple of hours. But best of all? It's SO easy to make. You throw the ingredients into a large mixing bowl, whisk it together until combined, pour the mousse into small cups, bowls or ramekins, and let it set in the fridge for a couple of hours.
I love to garnish mine with a generous dollop of coconut yoghurt and shavings of dairy free chocolate. It's very rich and decadent, so I normally can't even get close to finishing a serving in one sitting. If you're like me, simply cover the remaining mousse tightly with cling wrap and enjoy the following day.
If stored in an airtight container (or tightly wrapped with cling film), it will live happily in your fridge for up to a week. But I doubt it will last that long! It cannot be frozen, and I can't figure out why anyone would want to do that anyway!
