If you haven’t ever made homemade mousse, then you’re totally missing out.
Not only is this homemade mousse incredibly easy to make, but it’s also vegan to boot (but I PROMISE, it doesn’t even taste vegan!). No one will ever know. I’ve made this for a number of friends that couldn’t believe that it’s vegan after tasting it, and kids love it, too.
An easy recipe that is also secretly healthy? It’s a win-win for everyone.

39g Carbs 13g Protein
- 1 cup sweet potato, peeled and cooked (225g/0.5 lb sweet potato)
- ½ cup (125g) smooth peanut butter
- ½ cup (50g) natural cocoa powder
- 6 tbsp. maple syrup
- 1 tsp. orange zest
- ½ cup (120ml) chickpea brine
- ½ tsp. lemon juice
What you need to do
1 – Place cooked sweet potato and peanut butter in a food processor. Process until smooth and, then add cacao powder, maple syrup, and orange zest, blend again until smooth.
2 – Place chickpea brine in a clean bowl. Add lemon juice and whip with a hand mixer until you achieve stiff peaks (this can take around 3-6 mins) – you should be able to invert the bowl, and the whipped brine should not move an inch.
3 – Fold whipped chickpea brine into the chocolate and mix until well combined. The mixture will deflate slightly. Spoon the mixture between 4 small serving glasses and place in the fridge for 8 hours (or overnight) for the mousse to set.
