This may make you laugh, but I’m not kidding when I say that this tastes fabulous! And this is one of those recipes that has no rules, so you can do anything you want with it.
My favorite mousse is chocolate, so that’s the recipe I’m going to share with you.
Start with a box of tofu. I like firm tofu, but there’s no reason you can’t use soft, if that’s what you like.
I put the tofu in my blender and add a banana. I use the bananas that are closer to green, because they make my sugar spike less then a riper banana will.
Next, I add chocolate. There’s a couple of ways you can do this, depending on your personal taste. Before I was diagnosed diabetic, I used to melt a cup or so of chocolate chips and pour that in. Nowadays, I usually dump in a cup of sugar free Nestle’s Quik, or a box of sugar free instant chocolate pudding.
Blend it together, and add more chocolate a little bit at a time, if needed. I do a lot of taste testing during this phase, until the chocolate flavor is right for me.
And that’s pretty much it. This is a simple recipe, and one that gives endless possibilities. If you want to put strawberries or raspberries in with your chocolate, go right ahead. Try spooning in a little peanut butter, or go crazy and add some Kahlua. The sky’s the limit! Depending on what kind of blender you have, you can also throw some nuts or peppermint candies in with your mousse to add a little extra flavor.
Not a chocolate fan? No worries with this dessert. Tofu will adapt to almost any flavor, so feel free to experiment.
This mousse is easy, quick to make, and no one will know that the main ingredient is tofu. Give it a try, I think you’ll be surprised at how good it really is.
Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope you’re having a great week so far, and I hope you’ll be able to stop by again on Sunday.
