Healthy Mocha Mousse
Hi, my name is Jessica, and I’m a coffeeholic… and a chocoholic… with a major sweet tooth. Now that’s what I believe people call a “triple threat.” Thankfully, I can safely indulge in coffee, chocolate, and dessert with this Healthy Mocha Mousse!
This Healthy Mocha Mousse is so thick and rich and chocolatey and sweet and delicious and addicting…
I’m sorry if I’m rambling, but all I can think about is this mousse right now… not proper grammar 😉
One bite of this Healthy Mocha Mousse and you better just say goodbye to your self-control right now. Take it from someone who knows.
And has experienced the severity of the ensuing chocolate hangover.
But you know what the solution is? More chocolate. DUH.
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!
- 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)
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!
**My block of tofu weighed 360g after draining and pressing.
Top your Chocolate Coffee Mousse with whipped cream and freshly grated dark chocolate, and you are in for a real treat.
Is mousse for breakfast wrong? If so… whoops! 😉
