Healthy and Silken Chocolate Mousse

This chocolate mousse is doubly delicious and healthy. Even if you are a chocolate addict, I recommend that you treat yourself to this culpable dessert in small portions. Because it is made from silky tofu and its high protein content will make you hungry. But I don't think anything will stop you from stuffing yourself with it anyway.

  • Food processor or blender


  • 6 Medjool dates pitted and soaked for 30 minutes and drained
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
  • 12 oz silken tofu (340 g)
  • ¾ cup cocoa powder (notes)

Optional garnishes:

  • Fresh berries for serving


  • Place dates and maple syrup in the small bowl of a food processor fitted with an “S” blade and operate the machine until a smooth consistency is obtained.
  • Tear the silky tofu and place it in a food processor or blender and add the cocoa powder. Trigger the machine until a smooth consistency is achieved, briefly stopping the machine to scrape the edges and underside of the blade, if necessary.
  • Divide the mousse into serving ramekins. Add your chosen garnish just before serving, if desired.
  • Placed in an airtight container, this chocolate mousse made from silky tofu will keep for up to five days in the refrigerator and up to two weeks in the freezer.


  • Dattes: it is possible to replace them with ordinary pitted dates, but soft (not deglet nour). 1 Medjool date = 2 regular dates.
  • Cocoa Powder : sift it to avoid having clumps. You can replace this ingredient with semi-sweet, dairy-free chocolate, 70% dark chocolate, or any good quality chocolate
