We’re totally gaga in my house for this Eggless Chocolate Mousse — we’re so addicted, in fact, 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 just 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 a challenge. I had actually first made a few batches of this mousse recipe using eggs and by experimenting a bit, I realized that by using a bit more whipped cream, the need for eggs as a thickener all but disappeared.

As evidenced by the pictures those lofty peaks look just like chocolate clouds. Topped with whipped cream clouds. That’s one seriously delicious cloud formation.

And again, I can’t overstate the ease factor associated with this one. In fact it’s so simple to make, you’ll want to do it just to impress whoever you’re making for. It’s a great way to make Mother’s Day extra special by making Mom a unique and luxurious treat she will remember for years to come. That being said, it makes as big an impression any day of the year you decide to make it.

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

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

  3. Hi, just writing to say I came across this recipe of yours and…it’s delicious! Easy to follow, light, and came out just like in your photos

  4. 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!

  5. 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

  6. 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.

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

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

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

    These look awesome!
