Light Tofu Chocolate Mousse | Zestful Kitchen

Light Tofu Chocolate Mousse

Makes 2 cups (4 servings)
Cooked Meringue:
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 Tbsp. granulated sugar
Mousse:
  • ¼ cup + 1 Tbsp. soft silken tofu
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons regular vanilla yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons milk chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon semisweet chocolate chips
Optional Toppings:
  • Milk chocolate chips, melted and drizzled
  • Dark chocolate shavings
  • Cocoa powder
  • Graham cracker or shortbread cookie
For cooked meringue:

Fill a saucepan halfway with water. Place a glass, heat safe bowl over the saucepan. (Similar to a double boiler set-up). Bring water to a simmer; making sure the water does not splash the bottom of the glass bowl.

Pour egg whites and sugar into the glass bowl and begin beating with an electric hand mixer on a medium-low speed for 1-2 minutes.

Increase to medium-high and whip 6-7 minutes until stiff peaks form; remove from heat.

For mousse:

In a microwavable safe bowl, melt chocolate chips, setting aside 1 tablespoon of milk chocolate chips for later.  Once melted, set aside.

In a medium bowl, beat together tofu and both yogurts with an electric hand mixer, until smooth.  Start slowly then increase speed of beaters. Add melted chocolate to tofu-yogurt mixture and beat until chocolate is fully incorporated.

With a rubber spatula, gently fold 1/3 of chocolate tofu mixture into the cooked meringue.  Repeat with remaining thirds.

Melt remaining milk chocolate chips and swirl into mousse. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes and garnish as desired.

Serving suggestion:

Refrigerate in mini Mason jars or small glasses in preparation for serving the next day.

Top with 1 shortbread cookie and dark chocolate shavings.

Recipe Note: For best results, use chocolate baking bars; 1 ounce milk chocolate and ½ ounce semi-sweet.  Additionally, pasteurized egg whites can be used in place of cooked meringue.  Beat 3 tablespoons egg whites with 1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar with electric hand mixer gradually adding 1 tablespoon sugar at soft peak stage.
