Equipment

  • Food processor or blender
  • 4 serving glasses or bowls that are about ¾ cup (170 ml, 5.7 ounces) in size.

Ingredients
  

  • 300 grams (10.58 ounces) of silken tofu
  • 150 grams (5.3 ounces) of dark chocolate
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • ¼ teaspoon salt optional

Topping suggestion

  • Whipped cream dairy or dairy free
  • Fresh berries
  • Grated or shaved chocolate

Instructions
 

Drain the tofu

  • Carefully remove the tofu from the packaging, and place it into a fine-meshed sieve set over a bowl.
  • Next, gently press a triple layer of absorbent paper (or a clean lint-free folded tea towel) onto the tofu to absorb moisture.
  • Allow the tofu to drain for 10 - 15 minutes.

Melt the chocolate

  • Break the chocolate into small pieces and place them into a microwave-safe bowl.
  • Microwave the chocolate on high the high setting in 15-second bursts until just melted - this can take up to 1 minute or more depending on the powder of your microwave oven.
    Use a metal spoon to move the chocolate to see how soft it has become.
  • If most of the chocolate has softened, stop microwaving, and use the metal spoon to mix the chocolate until fully melted.

Make the mousse

  • Place the drained silken tofu into a blender with the melted chocolate, maple syrup, and salt, and blend until smooth. Stop and scrape the sides down so that everything is evenly blended.

Place into serving glasses

  • Divide the mousse between 4 serving glasses or bowls, and refrigerate at least 30 minutes or longer before serving.
  • Serve chilled, garnished with whipped cream, berries, and grated chocolate.

Notes

  • Draining the tofu makes it thicker and creamier in texture. 
  • Melt the chocolate after you have drained the tofu and put it into the blender with maple syrup and salt. 
  • The melted chocolate needs to be added to the other ingredients while still hot to make a silky smooth mousse.
  • Stop and scrape the sides of the bowl at least once during blending for an even consistency.
