Prep time
Cook time
Total time
This luscious dessert is healthier than most, but still quite decadent. Please note that the Prep time is hands-on time only. Allow time for the dessert to set. The mousse can be made a day ahead, but if using banana, slice the fruit and layer just before serving.
Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Serves: 8 servings
  • 12 ounces semi-sweet dairy-free chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 (12-ounce) packages silken extra-firm tofu
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 large banana, sliced, or 1 cup fresh berries
  • 1 graham cracker pie crust (optional, for pie)
  • Dairy-Free whipped topping (optional)
  • Sliced almonds (optional)
  1. Melt the chocolate chips and water together in the microwave for 1 minute. Stir vigorously. If not fully melted, heat 15 seconds and stir vigorously again. Do not overheat the chocolate or it will seize!
  2. Place the tofu in your blender or food processor and puree. Add the melted chocolate and vanilla, and blend at high speed for 2 minutes.
  3. Layer the chocolate mixture and fruit in pudding cups or in a graham cracker pie crust.
  4. Refrigerate the dessert for 1 to 2 hours, or until set.
  5. Garnish with dairy-free whip, almond slices, and/or additional fresh fruit, if desired.
