INGREDIENTS

For mousse

  • ¾ cup aquafaba
  • 1 cup (6 oz) vegan dark chocolate
  • 1 1/ 2 tbsp. maple syrup, honey or monk fruit sweetener(optional)
  • 3 tbsp. strong brewed espresso
  • 1 tsp. vanilla essence
  • ½ cup almond butter made in the NutraMilk
  • whipped cream of choice or yogurt to serve (optional)

For almond butter

  • 2 cups (300g) almonds
  • 1/8 teaspoon Pink Himalayan salt (optional)

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Making almond butter
    • Place almond and salt in the NutraMilk container.
    • Press Butter cycle, set for 12-13 minutes.
    • Press Start.
    • Open the container lid.
    • If necessary, set for an additional 1-2 minutes for a creamier butter.
    • Set aside ½ cup for recipe and store the rest for later use.

  • Melt chocolate with a splash of plant milk over a water bath or in the microwave in a microwave safe bowl. Once melted, add maple syrup, almond butter and espresso. Mix with a spoon until creamy and set aside to cool.

  • Drain aquafaba into a bowl (make sure it’s grease-free) and using an electric mixer beat until whipped and stiff peaks form (this can take 10-15 minutes).
  • Once the peaks are formed and chocolate has cooled, gently fold the chocolate into the whipped aquafaba using a spatula. Gently mix until well combined.

  • Divide the mixture into glasses/jars and place them in a fridge for 3 hours to set. Before serving, decorate with coconut cream/yogurt and sprinkle with shredded chocolate, coffee beans and hazelnuts.
