Yuzu, tofu, chocolate mousse pots
Trust me, and you will love me forever.
For I am bringing you another healthy but damn delicious dessert.
After the lemon cremes, I thought of making passion fruit pots, lime pie, tofu creme brulees! And then I thought of choc mousse and how good that could be.
I tried this out on a bunch of friends last night, and I promise the bowls were scraped clean.
You could add whatever you like to this recipe but I wanted to keep the ingredient list down so you could see how simple it was. It takes 5 minutes, and a couple of hours to chill.
One friend said it tasted like the GU pots, I can't compare as I have never had one but you would NEVER guess this was made of tofu and compared to a GU pot of 199 calories, these have 96. That's pretty cool eh? Those of you who know me, may think I didn't know what a calorie was, well..it's January and I am on my best behaviour.
This is the stuff you are after- SILKEN tofu, and I love this brand. I made the lemon cremes with the Clearspring silken tofu from Waitrose which worked too.
You can make this with 100g of 70% chocolate and 1 carton of tofu and you will have choc mousse. I just added some more flavours which you can play around with.
Yuzu, tofu, chocolate mousse (vegan)
80g 70% dark chocolate (Green and Blacks)
20g milk chocolate
1 carton of silken tofu 349g
2 tbsp yuzu
grated zest of 1/2 orange
pinch of fine salt
1/2 tsp vanilla bean paste
cocao nibs and lime zest to decorate
Drain your tofu in a sieve lined with kitchen paper
Melt the chocolate (I do this in a microwave in a plastic bowl for 1 minute and then short zaps and stirring to make sure it doesn't burn)
Blend tofu until silky in a food processor or with a hand blender in a tall container and add the chocolate which should be cooled.
Add the remaining ingredients and spoon out into small bowls or glasses.
Decorate and pop in fridge to chill.
I'm really proud of this recipe, I hope you make it.
