If you do not have a dairy intolerance, then you can go ahead and use regular 35% fat whipping cream. I used coconut cream and it was just creamy and dreamy without all of the dairy fuss. You need to refrigerate the coconut cream for at least 24 hours in the refrigerator and I also like to refrigerate the bowl and the whipping beaters as well so that you can get to stiff peaks in no time flat.

Chocolate has been known to have mood-enhancing ingredients and powerful antioxidants that can help boost the immune system. When you eat chocolate something very powerful happens as it sends a "happy message" to your brain and life seems so much better.

Chocolate affects the central nervous system because of these "happy neurotransmitters" . These chemicals heightens sensory perception, increases relaxation and produces a feeling of euphoria and elevates mood. A day without chocolate is like a day without sunshine. I used Lindt's 70% chocolate to stay dairy-free.

Velvety Vegan Chocolate Mousse

Velvety vegan chocolate mousse is the perfect luscious dessert with deep dark dairy-free chocolate and quality coconut cream that whips together in just under 15 minutes.

  • Cook: 15 mins
  • Yields: 4 Adults or 1 Hungry Teenager


chocolate 70% - 190 grams (about 1 cup-chopped) (dairy free dark- I used Lindt)

coconut cream - 15 ounces (443 ml)

sugared cranberries or chocolate swirls - for garnish (optional)


1Place coconut cream in the refrigerator overnight. (I also like to place my bowl and whipping beaters in the refrigerator as well, as it helps the stiff peaks to form faster)

2In a large metal bowl add cold coconut cream and beat until stiff peaks form. (You can either do this by hand with a whisk, if you feel like building up some muscles, or with ann electric beater)

3Step 2:  Melt the chocolate bar in a microwave, first coarsely chop the chocolate (Save other 20 grams for garnishing or snacking) Place in a microwave safe bowl and heat on 50% power for 1 minute (only put in microwave for 15 seconds at a time and stir and check- do not over heat as chocolate will break). Remove from the microwave and stir. Continue this process until the chocolate is almost melted. Then stir until the chocolate is smooth.  Alternatively, you can melt chocolate slowly on top of a double boiler but make sure that the water on the bottom is barely simmering.

4FYI: Please keeps these following tips in mind when working with chocolate. Chocolate and water do NOT mix and the chocolate will seize up (hardens and cracks) when it comes in contact with water . The steam from the bottom of a double boiler can cause this problem. Make sure to keep your chocolate dry as it melts. If your chocolate does seize up, no worries, you can blend in a teaspoon of vegetable oil and the chocolate should smooth out again. When making chocolate decorations or chocolate swirls, keep chocolate in the refrigerator up to the minute you are ready to work with it, so it does not soften.

5Gently fold melted chocolate into whipped coconut cream until well mixed.

6Spoon velvety chocolate mousse into glass dishes or martini glasses and garnish with chocolate curls or coconut sugared cranberries. Enjoy the chocolate buzz!

    Quite tasty, and the portion size was just right….

    • I am glad you liked it and there are many more desserts in que. Any menu requests?

  • Sometimes all you need is two ingredients! These sound like the perfect fit, and I love this as a simple dessert to whip up!

  • I love coconut cream…and regular cream for that matter! Gotta try this!

  • kitchenriffs

    Two ingredients? I can handle that! This looks superb. And I love that it’s so easy. Thanks!

  • I love this recipe BAM! My youngest is dairy free, I should be as well, and I’m always trying to mix things up and find a quick but healthy dessert. On my dessert menu for sure! Yum!

  • In all the years I have been cooking, I have not once considered whipping coconut milk, that is genius, I cannot wait to make this beautiful dessert. Pinning, pinning, pinning! Hope you are having a great week lovely lady! Hugs from a rainy Canberra. xo

  • WOW!!! Why didn’t I think of this?? I am definitely making this for my husband 🙂

  • I’m entertaining my husband’s vegan colleagues next week, and this may be on the menu! Pinning!

  • This looks so delicious and creamy indeed, so easy to make. Thanks.

  • Two ingredients!!! I am in, this the perfect easy valentines dessert

  • I am swooning over here! These luscious bowls have only 3 ingredients? Actually the mousse has only 2 ingredients!!! My mind is blown – I would so love to sink my spoon into them – ALL of them – and seeing they are healthy – that’s ok right? 🙂
    Thanks so much for this!

  • This is seriously the most perfect and simple dessert!!! Love that its only two ingredients! It looks super creamy and dreamy 🙂

  • You’re on the first page of foodgawker!!! 🙂 This looks SO amazingly delicious. I was worried about how one makes mousse vegan, but the coconut cream is genius! Pinning! 🙂

  • Wonderful! Creamy and delicious and chocolate definitely makes me happy 🙂 Coconut cream is in the refrigerator section or is it canned? I buy coconut milk (canned) often and have used what rises to the top for desserts. Wondering if it’s the same…

      Thanks so much Sandra. Coconut cream is what rises to the top of the can of coconut milk, but that won’t be enough for this recipe. You can buy full coconut cream in the can or a small carton usually stocked on shelf right next to coconut milk. This is the brand I used…

  • so simple, and so delicious! This was shared on our gym’s facebook page 🙂

  • This mousse looks incredible, BAM! I’ve no experience with coconut cream but this dessert may change things. I cannot believe you made this mousse with only 2 ingredients. Your ingenuity in the kitchen never ceases to amaze. I imagine this recipe will be passed around quite a bitand rightly so. Hope you have a good week, Bam. Buona notte!

  • I’ve never used coconut cream for mousse and this is such an incredible idea! How I wish it’s summer right now so I can eat not one, but two of this!

  • Yum–this sounds wonderful–that coconut cream sounds so good and makes this so much healthier!

  • This looks and sounds so nice.. like chocoate pillows 🙂

  • Priya Shiva

    yum yum! So easy to put together and chocolate mousse looks perfectt!!!

  • This looks absolutely perfect, and so simple!

    • Bams Kitchen

      Thank you Jessie! This is one dessert that is certain to be on your table in less than 15 minutes.

  • This sounds totally delicious. I often make vegan chocolate mousse but normally with avocado and cacao or some whipped tofu. This one is heaps easier and I can imagine that the coconut flavour would be quite delicious 🙂
