Easy Chocolate Tofu Mousse

Easy Dark Chocolate Tofu Mousse

A superior cure for chocolate cravings

I created this chocolate tofu mousse recipe at a time when I was craving sweets. (Side note: I was pregnant.) So rather than shoveling cookies to feed my seemingly endless appetite, I wanted to try to feed my need with something that offered at least a little nutrition. This creamy rich mousse has become my favorite snack food and I love the fact that it’s basically guilt free.

I love the thick, substantive texture tofu gives the mousse and the faintly bitter richness of dark chocolate. It doesn’t have the etherial quality of a cream-based mousse but it has far more lightness than pudding.

Chef’s tip

I recommend letting this dark chocolate tofu mousse warm up to room temperature before serving for the optimal, creamy and sensual texture.

This recipe puts a healthy spin on classic chocolate mousse by replacing cream with tofu and using rich, dark chocolate. The dessert is naturally dairy-free and can easily be modified for a vegan diet.

  • 1 14 oz package firm tofu drained
  • 4 oz roughly chopped dark chocolate I like Trader Joe’s 72% blocks
  • 4 oz roughly chopped milk chocolate again, I love Trader Joe's
  • 1/2 c vanilla soy milk
  • 2 tsp cocoa powder
  1. In a food processor, mix the tofu until completely smooth (I use my vitamix).
  2. In a double boiler, gently heat the chocolate until completely melted, then remove from heat.
  3. Warm the soy milk slightly and stir in the cocoa. Add it to the melted chocolate and stir to mix.
  4. Combine the chocolate mixture with the pureed tofu in the food processor and process for about 2 minutes, until completely combined and light in texture.
  5. Store in the refrigerator. Bring to room temperature before serving.

Note: This dairy-free dessert is vegetarian-friendly but if you use vegan chocolate, you can make an entirely vegan version.
