Secret Recipe Club: Chocolate Tofu Mousse

Chocolate Tofu Mousse recipe


This month for Secret Recipe Club, I was assigned Ros' blog The More Than Occasional Baker.  Ros has a passion for baking and her blog is full of tempting treats.  I was severely tempted to make her flourless chocolate walnut cookies, because those are my favorite, but I resisted.

In the end, I chose this somewhat strange sounding recipe.  Now, I initially saw "tofu" and was really curious about this "dessert."  As someone who doesn't have a ton of experience with tofu, I hadn't really tried tofu in dessert form.  But, I was pleasantly surprised to find out that the tofu doesn't really change the taste, it just gives this mousse a silky texture.  I would probably call it a pudding though, or at least my version was more of a pudding texture. It was definitely tasty, and I felt really good about eating this dessert!  It satisfied my chocolate craving, without leaving me with a single shred of guilt. (Though let's be honest, as a food blogger, I never, ever feel guilty about the things that I eat!)

I did something tricky with this recipe.  You see, my bananas probably weren't quite ripe enough to make the pudding, but I had remembered seeing a recipe for Roasted Banana Cupcakes on Ros' blog!  So I decided to try roasting my ripe, but not ripe enough, bananas for the pudding!! Genius, if I do say so.

Chocolate Tofu Mousse recipe

Chocolate Tofu Mousse

From The More Than Occasional Baker

1 package soft tofu (Ros' was 396 g, mine was 300 g)
2 bananas*
3 heaping teaspoons cocoa powder
1 teaspoon raw honey (optional)

*If your bananas aren't very ripe (think bright yellow with minimal brown spots), preheat oven to 375F.  Place the whole bananas, with peels on, on a parchment lined, rimmed baking sheet.  Roast for 10 minutes.  Allow to cool, then remove the peel.

Whizz together all the ingredients in a food processor.  Divide mixture between ramekins and chill for several hours before serving.

  1. Interesting mousse version... I wonder if I could pass that by my beloved husband, the tofu-hater extraordinaire? ;-)

  2. I'm glad that you liked this recipe and that it hasn't put you of tofu! I love the roasted banana idea will be giving that a go next time. Coincidentally I made something similar or SRC today but with avocado instead of tofu. Happy SRC reveal day! :)
