Silken Chocolate Mousse:
I found this recipe in Spa Magazine and it is by Cal-a-Vie’s executive chef Steve Pernetti.
Here’s the yummy recipe:
- 3 12-ounce packages of light, extra-firm silken tofu
- 1/2 cup raw cacao
- 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup or agave nectar
- 2 tablespoons Kahlua
- 1 tablespoon plus 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 6 fresh raspberries and mint leaves
To make the mousse, combine two packages of tofu, cacao, a half cup of maple syrup, Kahlua, one tablespoon of vanilla, and cinnamon in a food processor fitted with a metal blade. Process 7 to 10 minutes until very thick and smooth, then chill for 20 minutes.
Make a tofu cream by blending remaining package of tofu, 2 tablespoons of maple syrup or agave nectar, and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla until combined and smooth.
Spoon alternating layers of mousse and tofu cream into wine or champagne glasses, garnish with raspberries and mint, and serve.
Engage your senses and enjoy every single scrumptious bite!
