Chocolate Mousse – A healthier version
I would never have thought that chocolate mousse could be prepared so light, fluffy and also healthier. Besides, it is quick and easy to make. You only need very few ingredients for this recipe. So if you are a fan of chocolate, I recommend trying this chocolate mousse! This vegan chocolate mousse is healthier than some other chocolate cream desserts because it is completely sugar, egg, and dairy-free. This chocolate cream consists of the following ingredients:
- Silken Tofu
- Dark chocolate
- Agave syrup
- Vanilla sugar (optional)
- Lemon zest (optional)
Silken tofu is very soft and has a higher water content than natural tofu. By the way, my vegan scrambled tofu is also made with silken tofu. Due to the addition of silken tofu, the chocolate mousse is rich in protein, calcium, and iron. Tofu is also very low in calories. By the way, dark chocolate from 70% has less added sugar. Milk chocolate often contains milk powder as well as plenty of sugar and other additives. Therefore I suggest using dark chocolate. Besides, dark chocolate has a positive effect on health but of course only in moderation. Chocolate with a high cocoa content contains antioxidants that counteract oxidative stress and inflammation.
How to make this vegan chocolate mousse?
What do you need to prepare this chocolate mousse? You need a blender to make this chocolate mousse with silken tofu creamy. I melt the chocolate in a water bath first. If you’re wondering how that works, check out the Peanut Butter Cups recipe. There I describe how to easily make creamy melted chocolate.
First, melt the chocolate. Place silken tofu, melted chocolate, agave syrup, some vanilla sugar or vanilla extract and lemon zest in a blender. Vanilla sugar and lemon zest are optional. The additional lemon flavor gives the cream a refreshing taste. You can also add some nut butter. It makes this vegan chocolate mousse even richer in nutrients. Mix everything to a creamy mass and put the chocolate cream in the fridge for at least an hour to get this light fluffy consistency.
How to serve and store this chocolate mousse?
I have served the chocolate mousse with coconut yogurt but you can enjoy the chocolate mousse with coconut cream or another yogurt. Nut butter also tastes great with this chocolate mousse.
You can keep the chocolate mousse in a jar in the fridge for up to 3 days.
The vegan chocolate mousse with silken tofu is
- Easy to make
