Chocolate Mousse

This is one of those classic vegan recipes that whenever I make it, I end up marveling at how I don't make (and eat) this every. single. day. The tofu provides protein, and everyone knows that dark chocolate is practically a health food. So this decadent dessert is actually good for you. A nutritional powerhouse, that is so creamy and rich that it tastes amazing. This weekend we thawed some raspberries that we had picked from my mom's garden earlier this summer to top it with. It was heavenly. Here is my version of this vegan staple.

Vegan Chocolate Mousse

1 cup dairy free dark chocolate chips
1 tbsp soy milk
12 oz extra firm silken tofu
1 tsp vanilla

Optional toppings:

Berries, nuts, or vegan whipped cream


Put the chocolate chips in a microwave safe dish, and add the milk to them. Heat for 45 seconds and stir to be sure the chocolate chips have all melted. Blend the tofu in a blender, stopping to scrape down the sides a couple times. Pour in the melted chocolate and vanilla and blend until it is completely incorporated. Chill to let it firm up and serve.
