3-Ingredient Chocolate Mousse, Vegan & Gluten-Free

Today’s totally decadent Valentine’s day treat seriously could not be easier to make. Rich, creamy and decadent, whether you make this dessert for your sweetie or your gal-pals, I promise they’ll never guess it’s made with only 3 ingredients!

This Vegan & Gluten-Free 3-Ingredient Chocolate Mousse is simply made of coconut cream, cocoa powder and maple syrup. The result is a light and delicious mousse!

The magic ingredient in this recipe is full fat coconut milk that’s been chilled overnight. I like to keep a few cans in my refrigerator so I’m always ready if a dessert needs to be topped with whipped cream.

In the photos you’ll notice that I added raspberries and made mini parfaits in shot glasses. I think this is a really cute party dessert idea (especially if you’re celebrating Galentine’s Day) but it also feels fancy enough for a romantic dinner for two.

  1. I made this and used it in your Cookie Cream Cups recipe, substituting it for the cashew cream. Delicious! It’s chocolate-y and the coconut cream gives it a sort of richness that you don’t want to eat too many all at once but you realize you don’t need to either because it’s satisfying. 😉 Thanks for sharing this easy recipe!
