Seriously smooth, creamy, chocolate peanut butter mousse, do I need to say more?
There are many ways you can make a healthy mousse – you can use chickpeas, avocado, or even aquafaba (something I haven’t experimented with yet) but in this recipe I have used silken tofu. Not only does it give the mousse a silky smooth texture, the tofu acts as a sponge and absorbs flavours really well, which has made for a truly decadent dessert.
This recipe is easy to make, and can be made in a matter of minutes. Literally. That’s one of my favourite things about it. As well the easy-ness, the mousse is lower in sugar than most and is full of protein, making it a healthy alternative to your regular chocolate mousse.
Top with grated chocolate, fresh raspberries, or on its own.
This Chocolate Peanut Butter Mousse is:
