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 and gluten free.
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!
