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.3 Ingredient Vegan Chocolate Mousse with Coconut Whipped Cream
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. 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!3 Ingredient Vegan Chocolate Mousse with Coconut Whipped Cream

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. 

Sweeteners 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 sweetener 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.

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!3 Ingredient Vegan Chocolate Mousse with Coconut Whipped Cream

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!

    • I used 6 oz dessert jars and got 4 of them, but then I've made it where I could almost get 5 of them too using too. Your serving size will depend on what size your dish/jars are etc.. You can make them 72 hours in advance if you like, ours are always eaten within a couple of days so they don't last long here.

  1. This vegan chocolate mousse looks super delicious. I love that it is so easy to make and only has 3 ingredients. This would be a great dessert to serve at a holiday dinner to accommodate vegan family members.

  2. I love recipes like this. Quick, easy, allergen free for me, and with ingredients I already have on hand. I'm making this with strawberry extract instead of raspberry. Thanks for the recipe!

  3. Thank you for sharing that this can be made for sugar free people. I probably will change the extract to Peppermint. The coconut cream lasts longer than I thought. Pinned for later. I haven’t had mousse in a long time. I can’t wait ????

  4. I love Enjoy Life Vegan Chocolate Chips too! They taste SO fresh. This recipe looks and sounds yummy and as a vegan I thank you very much for posting an awesome and easy Vegan dessert!
