Chocolate Mousse..with a twist

Chocolate mousse is one of the best creations…EVER.  I’ve been wanting to make it for a while now but the ingredients are very discouraging: heavy cream, 6-8 eggs, sugar, chocolate, etc..Ah!  When a craving comes along, I go to Whole Foods and get my fix…UNTIL NOW.  This chocolate mousse recipe is delicious, easy, and much lower in fat and calories!  Do NOT let the first ingredient discourage you  🙂


  • 16 oz. silken tofu (1 package)
  • 4.8 oz. semi-sweet or dark chocolate (50-60% cocoa)
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/8 tsp cinnamon
  1. Puree tofu in blender until smooth
  2. In a double broiler, melt remaining ingredients until smooth
  3. Add chocolate mix with tofu and blend well

Let it set in containers or tartlet shells for 2-3 hours (see pictures below), garnish with fresh fruit or chocolate shavings.  (PS: Tartlet shells = store brought, bakery aisle)
