Mousse on the Loose!

Pin It!

My yummy Valentine
Sweet chocolate Valentine
You make me smile…

On Valentine’s Day, you don’t have to choose: you can be kind to your sweet tooth and to your heart! You can have your chocolate (mousse) and eat it too. And the best part is that you can whip up this sumptuous chocolate dessert in about five minutes flat!

(Teddy bear sold separately.)

My chocolate mousse recipe came about one day when I had extra time on my hands (always a dangerous thing) and extra tofu in my refrigerator. In an attempt to rescue the tofu from going bad, I threw it into the Magic Bullet, added a few other key ingredients: healthy, five-minute mousse for one!

Chocolate Mousse for One

  • 110 grams silken-firm tofu (such as Mori-Nu; about 1/3 of the package)
  • 1/8 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon dark cocoa powder (dutch-processed cocoa or Hershey’s special dark)
  • tiny dash salt
  • up to 2 tsp liquid (such as water or milk of choice)
  • sweetener, to taste (sugar, stevia, agave, etc)
  • optional: almond or mint extract, instant coffee or espresso, peanut butter, flakes of coconut, or another fun flavoring– be creative!

Blend in the Magic Bullet or food processor. Then eat like there’s no tomorrow!  Or make it into a pie!

    I love that new banner!!! And it’s funny how the teddy bear’s shirt is kinda covered up so it says “I Love Ugs”, which made me laugh because I thought about how funny it would be if his shirt said, “I Love Drugs.”

    5 minute chocolate mousse – can’t beat that! Thanks Katie as this sounds delicious.

    My husband and I are actually celebrating Valentine’s Day on Friday instead of Saturday at one of our favorite little restaurants. We waited too long to make our reservations, and they were all booked for V-day. Oops. Oh well, I’ll still enjoy it just as much. We’ll celebrate Friday the 13th instead. :)
