Guilt-free chocolate mousse

Ingredients:

  • 1 – 340 g package of soft silken tofu
  • 5 oz of really good dark chocolate, at least 70% cocoa mass
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • ½ tsp pure vanilla extract

Method:

  1. Using an immersion blender, puree the silken tofu in a deep bowl until it’s really smooth.
  2. Melt chocolate and honey together in a metal bowl over gently boiling water, stirring often. When the chocolate is almost melted, remove from heat and stir until completely melted. Or, place chocolate and honey into a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 20 seconds on medium (50%) stir. If the chocolate isn’t melting then add 5 second increments until the chocolate starts to melt. Stir until it’s completely melted. Side note: if you over heat the chocolate, it will burn, and wreck this recipe.
  3. If the chocolate mixture is hot, let it cool for about 2-5 minutes.
  4. Add the semi-cooled melted chocolate to the tofu and puree together using the emersion blender or a blender.
  5. Add the vanilla, only pure will do, if you don’t have any please don’t add the artificial kind; it really affects the final flavour and not in a good way. Puree until well blended.
  6. Pour into a container and refrigerate up to three days. It thickens up as the chocolate cools down.

Hi Marilyn,
Do you think this would work OK if I subbed Stevia for the honey? Hubby is diabetic but loves Chocolate.

    Hi there! We checked with Mairlyn and she advises that you can substitute with Stevia, but notes that the mousse will be a bit firmer in consistency. Good luck! 🙂
