This is from the Mori-Nu Tofu box.... very easy and non-veggies love it too! Cook time includes chilling time.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 10 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips (See Note 1)
  • 2 (10 1/2 ounce) packages silken tofu or 2 (10 1/2 ounce) packagessilken firm tofu (See Note 2)
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup (or other liquid sweetener of your choice; can use less, to taste)


  1. Note 1: vegans: use barley-malt-sweetened nondairy chocolate chips or use a really good vegan chocolate bar (like Rapunzel Organic Bittersweet) instead of some or all of the chips.
  2. Note 2: I use the Mori Nu brand of tofu for this (since it's from their box), but you can use any brand, just make sure it is the"silken" type and not regular.
  3. Melt choc chips in a double boiler over low heat or in microwave (if you know what you're doing).
  4. Put tofu, sweetener, and melted chocolate into a blender and process until very smooth.
  5. Pour into a serving bowl or bowls and refrigerate, covered, for at least a couple of hours.
  6. Cover this well, because it will pick up EVERY odor in your refrigerator otherwise.

VERY rich and chocolately and so easy! I found a similar recipe, called Medicinal Mousse Pie, medicinal because of all of the health benefits of tofu. Rather than maple syrup, it used 1/3 c sugar dissolved in 1 T water. Whirl the mixture in the food processor, put it in a chocolate cookie crust and top with berries, and no one will ever know this has tofu. Thanks, basia1, for posting! I look forward to trying some of your other recipes, too!

No one will ever guess that there is tofu in this dessert! I used Mori-Nu Silken Lite Firm Tofu and sugar free dark chocolate chips to produce a lower fat, lower carb version of this GREAT mousse. The modifications simply make the recipe more acceptable for diabetic and heart-wise diet concerns. I totally omitted the maple syrup as it was way too sweet for our tastes; a good dark chocolate makes for a rich a flavorful mousse that will certainly become a favorite. My toddler gobbled up a cup and was in heaven! (What a good way to sneak a little extra protein into the diet of a picky eater!)
