We made this vegan chocolate mousse for a birthday, in addition to yummy whole wheat brownies (Hodgson Mill). We really could not believe the mousse was tofu!
We have NOT had good experiences with tofu, but when we found this recipe on the Engine 2 website, we thought we’d try it.
I have read a lot of controversy on soy products and whether they should be fermented or not fermented and which is better. I made this recipe before discovering these issues.
If soy is not a big part of your diet, this recipe is a great alternative to any processed dairy version you will find in a frozen foods section of your grocery. However, I do not recommend a diet high in soy products.
E2 Vegan Chocolate Mousse
- 1 package Silken Lite Tofu
- 2 Tablespoons cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/3 cup maple syrup or agave nectar
Blend all ingredients and chill for 2-3 hours.
I think next time I will add some peanut butter for variety. It takes minutes to blend and a couple of hours to chill. No one could believe it’s Vegan Dessert!
