Healthy Dairy-Free Chocolate Mousse

This decadent dairy-free chocolate mousse is leaner and higher in protein than traditional thanks to the use of silken tofu (use organic whole soy tofu if possible!). It’s also relatively low in sugar as Jessica uses a combination of dark chocolate and sugar-free stevia. If you prefer to use another sweetener, you can swap about 2 tablespoons of your favorite sweetener (sugar, agave nectar, etc) for the stevia.

  1. So rich and creamy! I haven’t had chocolate mousse since I cut out soy. I’ve been trying to slowly add it back in and very hesitant at first but in the last couple months took the plunge and fell in love and I’m trying hard to keep it in moderation and slow, only having it twice a week. Picking up some silken tofu this week so I can whip some up for this weekend!
