Rich Chocolate Tofu Mousses

By Thursday, December 19, 2013 , , , , , ,

Chocolate mousse is one of those decadent desserts that every girl needs in her life. I've tried many vegan recipes before using avocado and banana, but never found one with the same thick and fluffy texture and rich, chocolaty taste. I don't use tofu often, but in this recipe it's absolutely perfect. These mousses are packed full of protein from the tofu, so they're filling and satisfying unlike a typical chocolate mousse, plus they're packed full of all the goodness of raw cacao powder. The psyllium husk powder makes the mousse thick, airy and dreamy, plus it's packed with essential fibres too. This is a chocolate mousse that is good for you!


Makes 2 mousses

You will need:

1 carton (300g) silken tofu
1/3 cup cacao powder
3 tbsps-1/4 cup agave nectar/maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 heaped teaspoon psyllium husk powder

Simply combine all of the ingredients in a food processor until thick and creamy, then spoon into ramekins and leave to set. Top with your desired fruit and nuts and enjoy!

  2. Do you think this could work/be good as a "frosting" on a chocolate ginger cake?

    1. I have a feeling that the texture might be a bit off, so if you modified the recipe a bit you might get it to stick properly :)
