I made a Nutella mousse this weekend that is super easy and healthier than regular mousse.
Mr. K and I both love chocolate mousse but I’m always too lazy to make the traditional version. This one is super tasty and you don’t taste the healthy secret ingredient.
The healthy secret ingredient is once again tofu! When I was making my healthy chocolate shake, it reminded me of a chocolate mousse I had previously made with silken tofu. So I set about making a Nutella version.
First I tried it with the silken tofu. The texture was a little too loose for my liking and it was more like a Nutella pudding. So I tried again, this time with firm tofu and the texture was just right.
All you need to do is blend everything together and pour it into your ramekins. Easy right?
Once you’re done, you do need to let it set in the fridge for a few hours. Then it’s ready to eat. Top with some whipped cream if desired.
6 oz firm tofu
5 1/2 oz Nutella
Blend tofu and Nutella on high speed in blender or food processor until no tofu chunks remain. Spoon into ramekin. Tap bottom of ramekins onto counter or other surface so that mousse levels out. Chill in refrigerator to set for several hours.
