My kids love chocolate, they would basically eat anything if I poured chocolate on top. One of their favorite desserts is this Chocolate Mousse. The past couple of weeks, I have prepared it way more often than usual. We all need comfort food right now! Hope you enjoy this mousse, it’s easy, it only has few ingredients, it requires no cooking and no eggs. Basically, whip and chill!!

Mousse With No Eggs
Anytime I tell my guests that usually I like to make mousse with no eggs, they always ask How!! It’s pretty common for mousse to have eggs but I really like to make mousse in a quick and easy way. That, and also I tend to mess up when I cook the eggs and other ingredients:)). I’m not a chef after all. See below some of my other eggless mousse recipes:
Mousse Ingredients, Tips and Notes
I use very few ingredients to make this mousse, after all the idea is to make it quick and easy.
See below a picture of ingredients and some of the tools before I started whipping.
You basically need a bowl, a hand held mixer, sugar (or sweetener of choice), cocoa, walnuts, heavy cream and table cream. That’s it, really!! Once you whip everything together, then chill and serve. Easy peasy and I look like the best cook in the whole world to my kids:)).
- Sugar – it’s recommended to use 1 cup of sugar, but for our family that’s too sweet. We have been eating less sugar lately so everything that has sugar seems too sweet. So it’s up to you how much sugar you want to use. 1 cup it’s the recommended amount but we use normally half of that.
- Table Cream (Media Crema) – Usually I find this product next to condensed milk section or Hispanic section of my grocery store.
- Cocoa powder – there are too many brands out there. See below the one we normally use. This is a bit on the strong side so I add slowly and taste the cream, then add some more. Also, make sure the powder doesn’t already have sugar so you don’t double up. The better the quality of the cocoa, the better the chocolate mousse. Pick your favorite brand:).
Eggless Chocolate Mousse
- Hand Held Mixer
- Mixing bowl
- 1 can table cream (7.6 oz or 225 ml)
- 16 ozs heavy cream
- 1 cup sugar we use about half of it
- 0.5 cup unsweetened cocoa important to pick a good brand and taste as you add to mix
- 1 cup chopped walnuts
- Start by whipping the heavy cream until its peaks are stiff. See video for reference. It takes about 5 minutes to achieve results. When you start mixing start at medium speed and then you can increase slowly.
- Add sugar once heave cream is ready. Continue mixing.
- Start adding cocoa slowly. It's worth noting again that different brands have different degrees of bitterness, so add slowly and taste the cream. You can always add more.
- Lastly, add table cream. Continue mixing until all the ingredients form a mousse mix.
- Use a spoon to add to serving cups.
- Top with chopped walnuts. Optional – you can add berries too.
- Chill for at least 1 hour, better results 2 hrs. Enjoy:)

- Sugar – worth noting again that while the standard recipe needs 1 cup of sugar, that’s too sweet for us so we tend to use only half a cup.
- Cocoa – be careful as most cocoas are sold with sugar already. Pick an unsweetened, quality brand as it will make all the difference.
