Healthy Mocha Mousse

Servings: 5 servings
Prep Time: 25 mins
Total Time: 25 mins
This Healthy Mocha Mousse is thick and rich and chocolatey, and packed with caffeine! You'd never know it's low in sugar, high protein, gluten free, eggless, and vegan too!

Ingredients

  • one 14oz container Extra Firm Tofu **
  • ½ cup Unsweetened Light Coconut Milk (canned)
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 105g (¾ cup) Powdered Erythritol (or powdered sweetener of choice)
  • ¼ tsp Salt
  • ½ cup + 1 tbs Strong Brewed Coffee
  • 5 oz Dark Chocolate (melted; I used 72% cacao)

Instructions

  • Drain the package of tofu and place the tofu block on paper towels.  Press as much liquid out of the tofu as possible (see the GIF below the recipe box)**
  • Place the tofu, coconut milk, vanilla extract, powdered erythritol, and salt in a food processor or high-speed blender. Puree until completely smooth!
  • Scrape down the sides of the processor or blender.  While blending, pour in the coffee, then the melted chocolate.  Blend until fully incorporated.
  • Pour the mixture into serving cups.  Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.  Serve the next day with whipped cream, grated chocolate, freshly sliced strawberries, a dusting of cocoa powder, or spoons alone.  Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

**My block of tofu weighed 360g after draining and pressing.

  1. Hello tomorrow’s breakfast!! I love the step-by-step photos above! 🙂 This looks like the perfect thing to have right before a 10-4 shift…which is exactly what I’ll be doing hahah

  2. WOW! That looks amazing! How did you do those mini videos?

  3. Can’t believe this mocha goodness is high in protein! It looks SO fluffy and rich. WANT.

  4. What do you suggest to use if you don’t have an expresso machine for the coffee ? Is there some other coffee you can use ? This sounds really good and I want to try it.

    • I’m not an espresso aficionado, but I guess you can just buy some espresso from a good quality coffee shop. The espresso I used is of medium strength and I thought it had the perfect amount of coffee flavor. If you want a mousse that’s VERY strong on the coffee, ask for a very bold brew. Hope this helps!

  5. This mousse looks amazing, can’t wait to try it 😉 Just wondering at which step do you add the coffee? I didn’t see it mentioned anywhere. Thanks!
