Feed Your Body Friday: Vegan Chocolate Mousse

The sight, smell, and taste of chocolate always brings joy! Yet, brainstorming a unique chocolate dessert that is healthy, delicious, and vegan can be a challenging feat.

Today I come to your rescue with a simple yet outstanding chocolate vegan dessert. Give yourself a break from super carb-y cakes, muffins, and pastries by giving this rich, aromatic, mouth-watering, vegan chocolate mousse a try.

Cooking this four-ingredient recipe that needs just three uncomplicated steps makes you realize that making a delicious vegan dessert at home can be so surprisingly effortless.

Let me familiarize you with the beneficial aspects of the main ingredients that are used in making the Vegan Chocolate Mousse: the chocolate and tofu.

  • Dark chocolate is extremely nutritious. It has strong antioxidant properties and aids in keeping the heart strong. It is also effective for proper brain functioning.
  • Tofu is a fabulous vegan alternative to offer proteins to the body. All 9 vital amino acids are present in tofu.

To get the richest, creamiest mousse texture, try to refrigerate the mixture for a least an hour.

Let’s get started!

Preparation Time: 10 Minutes

Cook Time: 5 Minutes

Total Time: 1 hour, 15 minutes

Servings: 6

Ingredients:

  • 200g dark chocolate (70%)
  • 350g sweet dessert tofu (I use the vanilla flavour by Silken Tofu)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • Chocolate (grated)
  • Coconut flakes

Preparation:

  1. Melt the chocolate in a bain-marie. When the chocolate is melted, remove from heat and allow it to cool slightly, stirring occasionally to prevent hardening.
  2. Add tofu and vanilla. Whisk vigorously until the texture is smooth and even.
  3. Spread evenly into 6 small bowls and refrigerate for at least one hour before eating.

A close vegan alternative to the dessert tofu in this recipe is vegan Greek yogurt made with almond milk or coconut milk. If you don’t love coconut flakes as a topping, this vegan chocolate mousse also tastes fantastic garnished with fresh berries such as raspberries, strawberries, or blackberries. Crushed nuts would add an interesting texture to the soft mousse as well.

This chocolate mousse is an easy recipe that tastes splendid while being quite healthy. If this recipe won’t convince you that eating a vegan diet isn’t completely boring, nothing will. So what are you waiting for? Let your sweet tooth indulge!
