Chocolate Mousse

This is an extremely easy, amazingly light and fluffy chocolate dessert that no one (and I mean no one) will know is made with tofu. It is a delicious way to get more of those important antioxidant isoflavones into your diet.

Makes 3 servings


  • 4 ounces semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips (or roughly chopped chocolate bar)
  • 1 package (12 ounces) organic silken tofu at room temperature, well drained
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • Optional toppings: raspberries, strawberries, blackberries, chocolate shavings, fresh mint leaves


  1. Place the silken tofu (make sure that it is at room temperature and well drained of excess water) and maple syrup in a food processor and blend until very smooth.

  2. Melt the chocolate in the microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring between each heating, until the chocolate is melted.

  3. Add the melted chocolate to the food processor and blend, scraping down the sides as needed until well combined.

  4. Scoop the mixture into 3 ramekins or small glasses, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

  5. To serve, garnish with desired toppings.
