Protein Packed Chocolate Mousse

Don't you love a good chocolate filled treat that you can lick off your hands?

I mean, c'mon who doesn't?

Anyway, if you answered yes (and no one) to the question(s) above then this post is right up your alley.


It's rich, it's chocolaty, you can eat it with your hands, and, it's healthy?

Why yes it is, this good ol' mousse has tofu (which, if you don't get too picky, could mean that you could eat this dessert for breakfast, lunch, and maybe even dinner.  After all, tofu does have protein)!

Protein Packed Chocolate Mousse
(inspired by this recipe)

You need:
1 package firm tofu
1 tsp cocoa powder
1 1/3 cups chocolate chips
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp milk
a pinch salt
2-3 tbsp sugar (you can taste as you make it to determine how much you want)

Melt the chocolate chips.  Then, put everything in a food processor and blend until really smooth.  Pour into individual jars or cups (like I did), if you want.  Put the mousse in the fridge to chill.  It get's firmer the linger it sits.

That's a pretty easy recipe, huh?

You have no excuse not to make it.

So, I won't keep you any longer.  Why don't you go get out your food processor?

Pin It!
