Tofu chocolate mousse – healthy and the fastest ever

20121117-221141.jpg

I’ve seen Michael Smith preparing this dessert on TV a long time ago and have been willing to try it. He called it “the world’s fastest chocolate mousse”. It is like magic, so fast and so nutritious and yummy and made with only 2 ingredients! Before I decided to post it I made sure to watch my family’s reaction and did not mention to them that this chocolate mousse was actually prepared with tofu. Yes, I am not crazy, tofu! The recipe calls for bittersweet chocolate, which I didn’t use, I know my family doesn’t like it. It is so filling that you can make it in really small bowls for better portion control if you are watching our calories intake.
It is a festive enough dessert for the holidays coming ahead and it can be prepared ahead of time up to 2 days.
Give it a try and let me know what you think.

Fastest healthy chocolate mousse ever

4 portions or 6 smaller ones

8 oz silken tofu, room temperature
8 oz bittersweet chocolate, chopped (I used milk chocolate)
1 tablespoon vanilla extract

Melt chocolate in a bowl set over a pot of simmering water. Be careful to not allow any drop of water in the chocolate mix.
Puree the tofu in a food processor until very smooth.
Add the melted chocolate and vanilla and puree again until the mixture is very smooth.
Pour into 4 or 6 serving dishes and chill until ready to serve.
Top with whipped cream.

Enjoy and thanks for stopping by!
