Chocolate Tofu Mousse

This is for my vegetarians out their that are trying to avoid dairy or if you just want a dessert with protein this one is for you.  Tofu mouse will satisfy your sweet tooth without you feeling guilty because it is jam packed with nutrients from the soybean. 

Soybeans contain 40-50% of its contents is complete proteins.  That means you could eat it and it will have all the essential amino acids. As opposed to other beans, where they lack some of the amino acids.  Soybeans have been used to help with controlling weight by acting as a natural appetite suppressant.  

It can also help boost your mood, protect your heart and liver, protect against cancer, and act as an antiviral.  Tofu contains many vitamins and minerals such as potassium, iron, and calcium. 

This dessert is easy to make and can be modified to meet your taste buds needs. 


-1 package of silken tofu, drained (it can be used with firm tofu as well but will make a gritty texture)
-Chocolate of choice (either cocoa powder,  melted chocolate chips or chocolate syrup)
-Sweetener (optional, stevia, honey, sugar substitute, or if you must, sugar)

In blender or food processor blend tofu until nice and smooth.
Add desired amount of chocolate and sweetener and enjoy.


For mine I used cocoa and melted chocolate.  This dessert will make you feel like you are eating ice cream and it will satisfy your hunger due to the mass amount of protein.
