By whisking melted chocolate and water together, molecules of water get suspended in the chocolate fat, air is whipped into it, and mousse is formed. Science is amazing and tasty! There are no eggs and no cream necessary unlike regular mousse so this one is dairy-free. It is also vegan if you make sure that the chocolate you choose does not contain milk or ingredients that are derived from milk.
I topped the mousse with easy-to-make coconut whipped cream because I love coconut and chocolate together in all forms! It also keeps it vegan, if that is important to you.
Now onto to the recipe.
All the ingredients you'll need for this recipe.
Using a cold mixing bowl and metal whisk, whisk together the coconut milk, sugar, and vanilla extract until stiff peaks are formed. Refrigerate.
Whisk together the chocolate and hot water until the chocolate is completely melted.
Place it on an ice bath and begin whisking. Whisk it until you get your desired texture.
Soft and creamy texture!
Place it in a container of your choice!
Dollop coconut whipped cream on top of the chocolate mousse and finish with chocolate shavings and a strawberry.
