and what is even better than chocolate??
Healthy Chocolate Mousse
Here is the mixture ... all whizzed up in my amazing Bosco kitchen appliance that I LOVE! This is the first time I have used the blender attachment ... awesome!!!!! If you would like to know more about Bosco Appliances (only available in Australia) .. click HERE
Anyway this is a chocolate mousse using Silken Tofu ... yep you read that right TOFU!.
I will be tweaking this recipe as the finished product was not quite perfect. This is the recipe I used:-
- 1 cup (190g) dark chocolate chips
- 2 tablespoons water
- 500g silken tofu, drained
- 1/4 cup (65ml) soy milk
- 2 teaspoons vanilla essence
- 1 tablespoon honey
Melt the chocolate
Blend it all togehter!
Refrigerate for 2 hours.
But I think next time I will use Cocoa Powder instead of the chocolate for two reasons:-
1. the melted chocolate actually solidified again when it hit the cold tofu
2. The chocolate was grainy and not very chocolatey.
It still has a nice taste (both my Husband and I enjoyed it .. Madalyn (3.5) not so much and she usually likes tofu. So I will make again but with a few changes.
But all in all a nice healthy treat .........
Thanks for stopping by ..... see you again soon.
