Just in time for Valentine’s Day, here’s a treat you don’t have to feel so guilty about. My husband had this last night and was convinced it was normal, rich, chocolate mousse.
Normal chocolate mousse lists heavy whipping cream and butter as the heavyweights in its list of ingredients and takes almost two hours to make.
My healthy chocolate mousse only needs four ingredients (none of which is butter or cream) and is ready for you in less than 30 minutes. Now is the time when Charlie Sheen or that crazy bananas chick on the Bachelor (which one, right?) would say, “winning.”
Healthy Chocolate Mousse
- 3/4 cup of semi-sweet morsels
- 1/4 cup of skim milk
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 package/12 oz of soft, silken tofu (drained)
Melt your morsels in the microwave (about 1.5-2 mins) or a double-boiler. It’s okay if they aren’t all completely melted. Stirring it a bit will ensure they’re all ready to process. Process all ingredients until smooth. Chill for 15 minutes.
I serve this mousse with berries on top, but you can use anything or nothing on top. It’s delicious either way!
Don’t like tofu? No problem. You won’t even know it’s in there by the rich, delicious taste of it.
