If the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, then the way to a girl’s heart is via CHOCOLATE! This recipe for Chocolate Mousse provides the creamy, rich flavor of dark chocolate without the guilt. That is why I call it the Guiltless Chocolate Mousse!

Guiltless Chocolate Mousse
Makes 12 servings
- 3/4 cup non-dairy almond milk (or other non-dairy milk)
- 6-8 Medjool dates pitted
- 1 package low-fat silken tofu, drained
- 1 package low-fat firm tofu, drained and pressed
- ½-3/4 cup Hershey Cocoa Special (based on your taste)
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 12 large strawberries
Soak dates in almond milk for 15 minutes. Place in a high-speed blender and blend on high till dates have liquified.
In the meantime, prepare your tofu by draining both packages, then press excess water from the firm tofu. Allow firm tofu to rest on paper towel to remove additional water.
Combine almond milk, tofu, cocoa, and vanilla in the jar of a high-speed blender. Blend on medium speed until thoroughly combined. Clean sides of jar as needed.
Refrigerate 2-3 hours before serving, or freeze for up to 1 hour prior to serving. Place in a dessert dish and top with a beautiful strawberry. Enjoy!
