Vegan Month of Food 2018 Day 17: Cheap Sweets (YASSS!!!!!)

For the love of dog... this has TWO INGREDIENTS!
It is delicious!
Wasn't sure if this would land in "free from" week or this week for "budget friendly."  As you see, in the end I chose budget friendly. However this recipe is vegan, gluten free, egg free, nut free, dairy free (duh, VEGAN) and soy free (provided you use vegan chocolate which is allergen free).

Today, 2 ingredient chocolate mousse. Two ingredients and you're on the way to super deliciousness sans the brutality of dairy. Oh, did I mention TWO FREAKING INGREDIENTS!!!!!

If you add 1 teaspoon of vinegar and a splash of plant milk, you have 4 ingredients. The recipe works with it, or without it. I did not add any sugar, none, zip, zilch, zero.

The credit for this recipe goes to Lazy Cat Kitchen.
Their link is:

1 cup aquafaba (240ml) (I did not reduce mine, you'll see in the video)
140 grams good quality vegan chocolate (I used Multiple Organics, a fair trade allergen free chip)
optional: sugar (you seriously do not need it)
1 tsp vinegar (optional)
splash plant milk (optional)

Pour the aquafaba in a stand mixer, add vinegar if using. With balloon whisk, turn mixer on from low to high and let it whip (visions of Dazz Band now) til 100% firm. You'll know when it's ready.

Heat chocolate and splash of plant milk if using. I used the microwave at 30 second intervals. Whisk til completely smooth. Cool completely, 100% cooled!

When chocolate is cooled and AF whipped, add in your chocolate to the AF and fold in completely, gently. The AF will deflate, it's ok, that's what it does. When combined, pour into dishes of choice. Recipe says 4 servings, I got way more than that and if I had enough dishes I could've probably done 10!  Chill overnight, it gets fluffy and perfect.

Have at it. You will not be sorry!
