The Best Vegan Chocolate Orange Mousse You’ll Ever Make

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.
