Cheesecake Mousse

Pin It!

With a recipe so decadent, who needs a creative post title?

Call it cheesecake dip, pudding, fondue, or even vegan cream cheese frosting… whatever you want to call it, this concoction tastes awesome!  And with only four ingredients, it couldn’t be easier to make.

This frosting can also be eaten as a pudding, dip, or even thinned out as a sauce for pancakes.

Above, as frosting for: Cinnamon Roll Baked Oatmeal

 

Cheesecake Frosting

(or Cheesecake Mousse)

  • 1/2 cup silken-firm tofu (I use Mori-Nu)
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tbsp cream cheese spread (I like Tofutti non-hydrogenated)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • sweetener of choice to taste (I’d recommend stevia or powdered sugar)
  • optional: pinch of cinnamon

Blend the tofu until smooth, then add the other ingredients and blend again.

See this recipe if you’d prefer a Soy-Free Frosting..

    Sounds tasty to me! I have some tofutti cream cheese sitting in my fridge (it’s just begging to be used), so maybe I’ll give this a try. Any idea how I can make it without weighing the ingredients? I don’t have a food scale…

  2. brandi says:

    great idea!

    I have a new food combo i’m trying in the morning (if I remember) 🙂 Does that count?

    yummmmy! i love cheesecake but try not to have it too much since it’s high in fat/calories and dairy that hurts my tummy 😉 but these i will definitely try. i love that it’s SIMPLE because i hate to cook/clean up a big mess but 4 ingredients is my type of baking 🙂

  4. Sounds like a winner! I have the ultimate weakness for carrot cake and cream cheesey frosting, so if there’s a healthier way to make my favorite treat, bring it on! THANKS!
