You only need two ingredients for this chocolate mousse and it doesn’t require any cooking. All you do is blend the ingredients, chill the mousse, and serve.
You only need two ingredients for this chocolate mousse and it’s healthier than regular chocolate mousse. It doesn’t contain egg yolks, heavy cream, or the other fattening ingredients usually found in a chocolate mousse recipe, but you’d never guess! It’s so rich and chocolatey no one will even know it’s a healthy version.
I’ve made this chocolate mousse many times and it’s great year-round but especially during the summer because it doesn’t require any cooking. You simply blend the two ingredients and place it in the fridge until it’s set.
Chocolate Mousse made with Silken Tofu
The secret to this incredibly easy mousse is silken tofu. Silken tofu has a delicate, soft texture. When blended, it becomes a creamy base for dressings, sauces, puddings and mousse. You do need to make sure you choose silken tofu. Other styles of tofu (i.e. firm, soft) will not be soft enough.
The second ingredient is chocolate and you can use whatever type of chocolate you prefer. I like using semisweet chocolate chips because I favor dark chocolate, but I have also used milk chocolate and it works well, too.
I love how easy this dessert is to make and it’s so delicious!
Did you know you can also use avocados to make chocolate pudding? It’s so delicious, too.
- 8 oz silken tofu
- 8 oz semisweet or milk chocolate chips
- Microwave chocolate at 30 second intervals and stir until all chocolate is melted and smooth. Mine needed just one minute. Scoop into food processor along with tofu and blend on high speed until thick mousse forms. Make sure all the tofu is blended into the chocolate. Scoop into ramekins and rap bottoms of ramekins on hard surface to settle the mousse. Refrigerate for several hours to set.
