Vegan Double Chocolate Mousse with Aquafaba/Vegan Chocolate Mousse

Recently i had an immense pleasure to experiment Aquafaba (the chickpeas cooked liquid/brine) in one of my favourite dessert, as its replace the egg very brilliantly in all your bakes or in desserts. Actually i want to try my hands since a while with this aquafaba but somehow i was bit skeptical about the taste of this 'incredible vegan egg whites'. One fine day, the kindergarden teacher with whom am working prepared a culinary demonstration to the kids. We simply whipped  an egg white and aquafaba separately to explain the kids about making meringue at home. That day,i tasted the whipped Aquafaba and completely fallen in love with this vegan meringue. I was seriously waiting to give a try with this incredible ingredient during my vacation and finally i did.

Vegan Chocolate mousse

If i want to feed something new to my family, i usually start with their favourite ingredient, if its a dessert obviously i'll combine that new ingredient with chocolates, everytime its works. Needless to say why i prepared chocolate mousse with aquafaba. None at home noticed this new ingredient and they enjoyed thoroughly without having any doubt. Later i have told them that i prepared this chocolate mousse with aquafaba, their reactions was million dollars. Oh god, if you would have seen their big eyes, i was laughing like anything. My hubby was totally shocked to know that this mousse are completely vegan as he loved this dessert.Now am ready to dish out some vegan desserts out of this Aquafaba. Am posting this vegan chocolate mousse for this week's blogging marathon as am running Kid's delight- Chocolate as this week's theme.
