  1. Melt the chocolate, either in the microwave* or in a double boiler on the stove**.
  2. In a blender, combine all of the ingredients, except for the chocolate, and blend until smooth.
  3. While the blender is running on low, slowly add the melted chocolate and continue blending until fully combined.
  4. Pour into serving cups and refrigerate for about 30 minutes, or until it is firm.
  5. Top with optional garnishes just before serving. Enjoy!


  • * Microwave method: use a glass bowl and stop to stir every 15 seconds until fully melted.
  • ** Double boiler method: useful If you do not have a microwave. Fill a saucepan with 2 inches of water and bring to a boil. Place a bowl just large enough to sit atop the pot without touching the water. Fill with chocolate, reduce heat to a simmer and stir throughout until the chocolate just fully melts, then remove from the heat.

Hi, I am from a country where maple syrup isn't a thing. I would only buy and use it for this one recipe, so I wanted to ask if the aroma is necessary or if I could substitute it with anything. Would the taste be significantly worse if I substituted it? Thanks in advance :)

Hi there, Karin, that's a lovely question. The maple syrup helps give the mousse a delicious sweetness with a touch of stickiness. You could substitute it for another more accessible syrup if desired for a similar end result. Alternatively, you could experiment with omitting the syrup and adding sugar to taste, although we haven't had a chance to test this out recently. Do let us know how it goes if you give the recipe a try 😃

Thank you!
I tried it with brown sugar, agave syrup and maple syrup and all three turned out great. The mousse was less stiff when I used brown sugar, but I made this quite often now and I found out that you can just add water if you want a more liquid consistency. It was the first plant-based dessert my family tried and they were convinced :)

Thank you for the insight, Karin, it's so appreciated! Glad the dessert was enjoyed 🙂

Hi Sadia,

this mousse is SOOOO good!
I've already made it a few times and it's become one of my go to recipes if I need a vegan dessert.
So thank you so much for making it much easier becoming vegan with your recipes <3

Hey there, Chrissi, thank YOU for being here! We're so grateful PUL has been part of your vegan journey 💖

One thing I crave when vegan is creamy chocolate sweets. This hits the mark for me. Yummo

OMG! This mousse is something else…it’s the best mousse au chocolat which I've ever eaten! And not only in vegan, compared to any (dairy) mousse as well! I bought the Magimix 5200 from your recommendations and I believe your recipe AND the food processor are the winning team for this perfect outcome … because of the food processor the texture becomes so unbelievably creamy and smooth!
I used a mix of dark chocolate and vegan rice milk chocolate and cashew butter instead of the almond butter. I adore this ! Thanks so much!

We're so thrilled you've been enjoying the food processor and recipes, Elisa! Thank you for sharing :D
