Easy 3-Ingredient Vegan Chocolate Mousse

  • Author: Jasmine @ Sweet Simple Vegan
  • Total Time: 2 hours 20 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings


Chocolate Mousse like you’ve never had before. Decadent, creamy, vegan and made with only 3-ingredients. It’s SO dang good!


Chocolate Mousse

  • 1 cup vegan dark chocolate chips
  • 1 1/2 cups unsweetened plant-based milk of choice
  • 1 heaping cup pitted Medjool dates
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)

Toppings (optional)

  • Vegan whipped cream
  • Raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, etc.
  • Shaved or chopped dark chocolate


  1. Place the chocolate chips in a medium microwave-safe bowl. Microwave the chocolate in 15-second increments, mixing after each increment, until it is completely melted. It took about 90 seconds for our chocolate to melt.
  2. Add the melted chocolate into a high-speed blender along with the remaining ingredients and blend until very smooth. Taste and add more dates to sweeten it up as needed.
  3. You can eat it as is or transfer the mixture into a sealable container, and set it into the refrigerator for about an hour to thicken.
  4. Transfer the mousse into serving cups and add toppings of your choice. We used vegan whipped cream, raspberries, and chocolate shavings. Enjoy!

  1. Dates and coconut milk are the best combination ever for a caramel sauce! But use a thicker coconut milk, add cacao powder, and BOOM, vegan mousse. What a genius innovation out of such simple ingredients!
