Vegan Chocolate Mousse Pots

Vegan Chocolate Mousse Pots

Vegan friendly food continues to impress me and these gorgeously creamy Vegan Chocolate Mousse Pots are no different. They are made using silken tofu, which is a much softer version of tofu that easily blends up into a smooth consistency. Then you add melted chocolate plus a couple of other ingredients and you’re left with a luscious chocolate mousse that’s so yummy! It’s so easy to make, there’s no baking involved and all you need is a blender or an electric whisk. They need minimum chilling, 30 minutes is enough, and they’re ready to eat! If you’re having a dinner party or having friends over then these Vegan Chocolate Mousse Pots are an easy and impressive dessert that everyone will love. Plus they’re suitable for practically any dietary need as they’re dairy free, soy free and gluten free.

Jump straight to the recipe!

I started by whisking up the silken tofu, I used a blender to make sure it stayed smooth without any lumps.

Then I added the cocoa powder, vanilla, maple syrup and icing sugar.

Finally I stirred in the melted dark chocolate which I added it bit by bit, and mixed it in well each time.

I divided the mixture between four little glasses and popped them in the fridge to set.

I made the coconut cream by whisking the ingredients together with an electric hand whisk, then dolloped it on top of the chocolate mousse. Then I added some raspberries and mint leaves, and sprinkled icing sugar over the top for an elegant finish. You can serve them with extra raspberries too as the mousse and fruit taste really delicious together.

I tested out the Vegan Chocolate Mousse Pots on my friends without telling them what it was made of and they had no idea it was a vegan recipe, let alone that it was tofu! My boyfriend loved the chocolate mousse too and I have to confess that I scraped the bowl clean!

  1. Oooh, yum! These look lovely. I really need to try using silken tofu in something like this. I can just imagine how well it must work. And hoorah that your website is now working again (or at least it looks that way from my end!) So pleased you got it fixed. Eb x

    1. The raspberries are so perfect with rich chocolate, I kept adding more to the pot as I ate!

  2. Oh yum! Seriously yum! I love using silken tofu in things like this but haven’t done so for ages. You have just given me the reminder I need! Thanks for sharing.

  3. I’m happy about this post for two reasons, no three, three reasons; firstly I cannot have eggs and I really miss homemade chocolate mousse, secondly I’ve had tofu in my cupboard for ages and didn’t know what to do with it and thirdly it’s wonderful to see you link up with #G2BGF. Off To rummage in my cupboards…oh and pin this first!
