Steps to make Vegan Chocolate Espresso Mousse
- 1. In a microwave safe bowl, melt dark compound chocolate at 20 seconds intervals until all chocolate is just melted, do not over heat. Remove from microwave, give it a quick mix and let it cool for a bit.
- 2. While the chocolate is melting, make the coffee decoction. I used 4 tablespoons of water to 3 tablespoons of coffee powder in a coffee filter or French Press
- 3. Add coffee decoction to melted chocolate and mix it well.
- 4. Now add all the ingredients – ripe bananas, ripe avocados, melted chocolate with coffee, cocoa powder and sugar and blitz until a smooth paste is formed. Do NOT add any water if you are looking for thick mousse just like the set mousse.
- Transfer the chocolate espresso mousse into serving cups and chill it for atleast two hours.
- 6. Whip the chilled coconut cream until you get soft peaks
- Just before serving garnish the mousse with vegan whipped cream, chocolate vermicelli and some chocolate shavings.
