Aquafaba Chocolate Mousse
Looking for a treat? Aquafaba makes a fabulous light and fluffy chocolate mousse.
1 cup baked sweet potato, peeled
1/2 cup frozen cherries
1/2 cup frozen blueberries
6 regular dates or 3 Medjool dates
1 cup whipped aquafaba (see note)
Blend potato, cherries, blueberries, cocoa powder and dates in a high-powered blender until smooth and creamy. Transfer to a bowl and gently fold in whipped aquafaba.
Note: Aquafaba is the typically discarded cooking liquid found in cans or boxes of beans or the liquid left from cooking dry beans. To make whipped aquafaba, use a hand beater or stand mixer to whip together 3/4 cup chickpea liquid (liquid from a 15 ounce can) and 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar. Whip for 5 minutes or until mixture forms stiff peaks. (This will yield more than one cup. Leftover whipped aquafaba will keep overnight in the refrigerator if you want to use it for another recipe)
