Tofu-based mousse...a guilt-free pleasure

Good morning everyone,

Are you looking for a break from this heat in the forecast? Sorry, you're going to be disappointed. There's no real change in the forecast for the foreseeable future. We can expect daytime highs in the low to mid 30s for...ever? Ha ha!

Tofu is one of the more versatile foods in Japan. This Japanese creation is an incredible substitute for dairy in all things creamy: dressings, sauces, and various desserts. In addition, it’s high in protein, contains all eight essential amino acids, is a good source of iron, calcium, and manganese and the cherry-on-top: is generally lower in calories than most dairy products.

And that is why I love using tofu to make my own desserts (yes, just for me because I deserve it!) — you can enjoy a tasty treat without the guilt! What could be better?  If you love the taste of soy as much as I do and simultaneously happen to be looking for a quick dessert to satisfy your sweet tooth on a lazy Sunday afternoon, then give this super easy vegan chocolate mousse recipe a go!

Oh — and did I mention? This tofu mousse is vegan, gluten-free, refined-sugar free, nut-free (Well, unless you decide to add them on your own), and 100 percent delicious.

Mousse ingredients

  • 300g silken tofu, drained
  • 3 tsp cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp pure maple syrup or runny honey

Toppings (optional):

  • Fresh or frozen berries
  • Shaved chocolate
  • Shredded coconut
  • Nuts and/or seeds of choice 


Combine mousse ingredient in a food processor or blender and blend until smooth. Eat straight away or refrigerate for a thicker consistency.

And that's it. It's like the easiest, healthy treat out there! I wonder what it would taste like frozen...hmmm...I might give it a shot in this heat...

Have a great day!
