If you don't know what aquafaba is, don't worry — you might already have it in your pantry. Aquafaba is the liquid in your can of chickpeas that you usually dump down the drain. It's a perfect substitute for eggs and egg whites in your cooking because it's the right consistency, it's virtually tasteless and it has no smell.

INGREDIENTS

SERVES 6

  • 1 cup Aquafaba
  • 1 cup dark chocolate, (70-85% cacao)
  • 1 tbsp Maple Syrup
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 tsp Cacao Nibs
  • 1/4 cup raspberries
  • 7 leaf fresh mint leaves

DIRECTIONS

1 Melt the dark chocolate in a double broiler. Once it's melted, stir in the maple syrup and vanilla extract. Temper (occasionally stir) the chocolate so that it doesn’t harden.
2 Chill the aquafaba (chickpea liquid) in the refrigerator until you plan to use it (chill for at least 45 minutes, needs to stay cold before whipped).
3 Pour it into a chilled bowl and whisk into white fluffy peaks. It’s best to use an electric whisk for this.
4 With a spatula, gently fold and mix the melted chocolate into the bowl. (Chocolate should be warm, not hot when mixing in.)
5 Scoop the mixture into small dessert bowls and chill in refrigerator for 30-45 minutes.
6 Top with raspberries, cacao nibs, and garnish with mint leaves
