One of my favorite things about cooking is trying new recipes, and I’ve always been drawn to recipes that use ingredients in usual ways.
I especially like trying out recipes that use traditionally savory ingredients in desserts – recipes like tomato soup cake or black bean brownies. A few years ago, my sister gave me a recipe for chocolate mousse that was made with tofu. She told me how great it was, and I’ve had that recipe tucked away in my to-try section for years now.
This Chocolate Mousse recipe is a really similar one to the recipe that my sister gave me. I love fried and marinated tofu, but, turns out, it’s also incredibly creamy when it’s blended up. Throw in a little sugar and cocoa powder, and you have a super creamy mousse that break the calorie bank!
- 12 oz . tofu firm, low-fat
- 1/3 c . sugar
- 1/4 c . cocoa powder unsweetened
- 1/3 c . milk fat-free
- 2 T . light whipping cream whipped
- Blend tofu, sugar, cocoa powder, and milk in food processor until smooth.
- Place chocolate mousse in 4 individual serving dishes (about 2/3 cup per serving
- Chill before serving. Top with whipped cream.
