Vegan Chocolate Mousse Recipe
3 Ingredient Vegan Chocolate Mousse with Coconut Whipped Cream
If you’re looking for a delicious, decadent dessert that is simple to make this Vegan Chocolate Mousse with Coconut Whipped Cream is for you. Don’t let the fact that it’s vegan fool you into thinking it’s not a rich, creamy, dessert, because it is and oh so much more.
This three-ingredient (yes only 3) vegan chocolate mousse is perfect for any special occasion like Valentine’s Day, anniversaries and more. It only takes 15 minutes to whip up this decadent vegan chocolate mousse, the longest part is waiting for it to chill in the fridge.
Trust me though it’s worth the wait. I used Enjoy Life Vegan Chocolate Chips that I bought on Amazon HERE. I love the taste of these ones but if you have a favourite then use those.
When I make this Vegan Chocolate Mousse my family has no idea it’s vegan, they just love the chocolatey taste. I love coconut anything so this was my first go and making coconut whipped cream and I have to say I’m hooked!
Tips for Perfect Coconut Whipped Cream
One thing to keep in mind when making coconut whipped cream is that you need to plan ahead. The can of coconut milk needs to go in the fridge the night before you want to make it. Remember you’re also only going to use the cream from the can not the clearer liquid part, however, don’t throw out this liquid just yet you might need it.
If your coconut whipped cream is too stiff then you can add some of that clear coconut milk liquid to make it softer.
Sweetners for the coconut whipped cream
Use a good quality coconut milk and none of that low-fat stuff, it’s just not the same. I also recommend not using a liquid sweetner as it can weigh the whipped cream down. The honey works great but you can also use a bit of icing sugar instead or if you want to go sugar free use just a bit of stevia and you’re good to go.

I’ll be making another batch of this Vegan Chocolate Mousse for my family this coming Valentine’s Day. They’ll think I’m spoiling them and will love it as always and bonus I only have to spend 15 minutes making it. Yes 15 minutes and then it goes in the fridge for at least 6 hours. I tend to leave it overnight just to be sure the mousse has set.

Coconut whipped cream:
- Place can of coconut milk in refrigerator overnight.
- Place a medium glass bowl in refrigerator for 10-15 minutes prior to making whipped cream, to chill.
- Gently remove can from refrigerator so as not to mix the cream and milk, then carefully scoop the cream portion out of the can and place in the chilled glass bowl.
- Add the vanilla extract and honey to the coconut milk. Using a hand mixer, beat the mixture on high until soft peaks form, around 3-4 minutes.

If you don’t like raspberry you can change the extract to a flavour you do like. Peppermint is another yummy combo.

How long does coconut whipped cream last?
One of the beauties of coconut whipped cream is that it will actually firm up even more when kept in the fridge. It will almost harden but it will last 1-2 weeks in the fridge in an airtight container. I like to have it firm so that it presents nicely on the dessert and lasts a little longer while you eat it. That’s if everyone doesn’t gobble it up right away!
If you’re looking for a satisfying chocolate fix this Vegan Chocolate Mousse will be perfect. In fact, I’m not sure I can wait until Valentine’s Day to have some more. I may need to whip up a batch tonight so I can have some this weekend! Don’t even tell the family it’s a vegan dessert, they won’t be able to tell the difference, mine sure didn’t and they are picky!
