I like to have a daily treat and prepared this healthy chocolate mousse dish from the book “Eat to beat disease” by MD William W. Li. It’s absolutely delish!! I was a bit skeptical because of the silken tofu, but it blends in beautifully with the chocolate. This recipe puts a healthy twist on a dessert because the dark chocolate helps the blood vessels and stem cells and there is the added benefit of the soy protein. If you have a sweet tooth, give it a try.?
– 4 ounces dark chocolate (70% cacao or greater), chopped into
– 12 ounces silken tofu
– 1 tablespoon maple syrup
– Chopped tree nuts (walnut, hazelnuts, pecans), for garnish
– Blueberries, strawberries, and/or blackberries, for garnish
– Fresh mint or lavender, for garnish
In a double boiler, melt the chocolate over medium heat, stirring periodically to prevent scorching. When the chocolate has completely melted, add the silken tofu and maple syrup. Stir to combine. Transfer the mixture to a food processor and whip until fluffy.Spoon the mousse into individual ramekins or serving cups. Place in the refrigerator to cool and set for at least 30 minutes. To serve, garnish with crushed nuts, berries, and mint leaves, if desired.
