Eggless Chocolate Mousse

We’re gaga in my house for this Eggless Chocolate Mousse. So much so, I guarantee that if I made it 365 days a year my kids would never get sick of it.

Made with semi sweet chocolate chips, organic whipped cream and a touch of cinnamon (which gives it the flavor of good Mexican chocolate), not only is this chocolate mousse creamy, light and totally decadent, it’s one of the easiest desserts I’ve ever made.

As the name states, what really sets this Eggless Chocolate Mousse apart is the fact that there are no eggs in it. For many kids with food allergies, finding tasty, egg-free desserts can be challenging. I had first made a few batches of this mousse with eggs and by experimenting I realized that by using a bit more whipped cream, the need for eggs as a thickener all but disappeared.

    So...we have a dairy issue in our household.

    What substitution would you suggest is best for the heavy whipping cream?

    These look awesome!

      You have a few options, coconut cream or almond milk & avocado or instead of avocado mix in chia seeds. Both are healthy delicious options.

      Hi, MC
      Take a look at Trim Healthy Mama for their coconut cream recipe - that might do it. But, I agree with Heidi - you might be better off looking for something that is dairy-free to start with.

      Can you have coconut? Scoop the cream from the full fat coconut milk cans and whip that up instead. Thai kitchen and arroyD are both food to work with

    Really good and simple to make! I wasn't sure when to add the cinnamon so just added it to the whipped cream. I also topped it with some sliced strawberries when serving it. My family ate it up!

    Looks good but lactose intolerant so I can't use whipped cream. Any other ideas?

    My significant other has a cinnamon allergy. Will it take away from the mousse if I just don't add it?

    Can the chocolate mixture be folded into a truwhip/cool whip type game product?

    • Also, how much would I need? I'm not sure how much whipped cream 1 cup of heavy cream will make. Thanks!
