What you need

  • 225g g sweet potato, peeled and cooked
  • 125 g smooth peanut butter
  • 50 g natural cocoa powder
  • 6 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp orange zest
  • 120 ml chickpea brine
  • 1/2 tsp lemon juice


  • Place cooked sweet potato and peanut butter in a food processor. Process until smooth and, then add cocoa powder, maple syrup, and orange zest, and blend again until smooth. 
  • Place chickpea brine in a clean bowl. Add lemon juice and whip with a hand mixer until you achieve stiff peaks (this can take around 3-6 mins) – you should be able to invert the bowl, and the whipped brine should not move an inch.
  • Fold whipped chickpea brine into the chocolate and mix until well combined. The mixture will deflate slightly.
  • Spoon the mixture between 4 small serving glasses and place in the fridge for 8 hours (or overnight) for the mousse to set.
