This rich, decadent, silky Tofu Chocolate Mousse is the perfect dessert. Made with silken tofu, bananas, tahini, cocoa powder, and maple syrup, it’s healthy, chocolatey, and so easy to make!
I love creating new recipes with a few, simple ingredients I keep on hand. There’s nothing like a mouthwatering vegan chocolate mousse to boost your mood!
Traditional chocolate mousse is packed with refined sugar and way too complicated! That’s why I created this decadent but easy tofu mousse. You can’t even tell this vegan chocolate treat is packed with nutrients.
It’s a super easy AND super healthy low-sugar dessert. It’s velvety, nutty and rich in chocolate flavor.
Tahini is the secret ingredient. Tahini is a condiment made from sesame seeds that have been soaked and crushed. It has a high concentration of healthy oils, and it’s filled with heart-healthy omega-3s. It gives the mousse a rich, nutty consistency that goes well with the cocoa powder!
Plus, for this sugar-free chocolate mousse, you don’t need any added sugar! The natural sweetness from the banana, plus a touch of maple syrup is all you need.
This healthy chocolate mouse is 100% raw, natural, refined sugar-free, gluten-free, vegan and totally delicious!
Silken tofu chocolate mousse requires five simple ingredients found at your local grocery store. For nutritional information and the full ingredients list / recipe method, see the recipe card below.
Tofu: Soft silken tofu is the perfect base for this indulgent vegan chocolate mousse. Make sure you buy silken tofu and not extra firm or firm tofu! I like using organic tofu whenever it’s available since non organic soy is typically GMO.
Bananas: The bananas along with the tofu make the creamy base! The bananas are a key ingredient in this easy vegan chocolate mousse, so don’t substitute them if possible – the riper, the better! They give this raw chocolate mousse a creamy texture and natural sweetness.
Tahini: To ensure your mousse is velvety and smooth, add in some tahini. It’s usually found in the condiment aisle or near the ethnic foods.
Cocoa Powder: This provides all the rich dark chocolate flavor. For an intense chocolate flavor, use Dutch cocoa powder.
Sweetener: I recommend using a touch of maple syrup to add just a bit more sweetness to this vegan chocolate pudding. Agave, honey, coconut sugar, white sugar, or liquid stevia are great options too.
Here are a few simple ways to customize this decadent dessert.
