Vegan Rich Chocolate Mousse

By Pavani @napavani
Today I have a rich chocolate mousse recipe that is guilt free and sooo delicious. The secret ingredient in this mousse is soft silken tofu. I was initially skeptical about using tofu in a dessert because I've had some really bad experiences with tofu based desserts years ago and I have not gone back to it till now.
Chocolate Mousse using Silken Tofu I saw this recipe in Vegetarian Times magazine and wanted to give it a second chance. I was pleasantly surprised how chocolaty and creamy this mousse turned out and there was no tell-tale sign of tofu. I made this last weekend to eat as a movie night treat and both my kids absolutely loved it.
Chocolate Mousse using Silken Tofu Talking about movies, my son is a big fan of Angry Birds and he's very excited about the new Angry birds movie that is releasing today. He wants to watch at the theater, but I prefer to watch movies at home sitting cozily on the couch and eating some homemade movie night snacks.
Chocolate Mousse using Silken Tofu I prefer sweet snacks over savory for movie nights. Don't ask me why?? But the family loves both -- sweet and savory. My personal favorites are caramel popcorn and ice cream. Family also loves these SkinnyPop Popcorn and the great thing about them is you could pick either sweet (some dusted chocolate??) or savory (jalapeno, yumm!!) and they are guilt free because they are made with few, clean and simple ingredients.
Chocolate Mousse using Silken Tofu If you prefer homemade chocolate treat, then try this yummy mousse. It takes about 10 minutes to make this, so it's a great make-ahead dessert. I topped them with chopped strawberries and almonds.
