Tofu is rich in protein and calcium.


Makes 10 Servings

  • semisweet chocolate chips (1 cup)
  • nondairy milk, such as soy milk or rice milk (1 cup )
  • low-fat silken tofu, drained (2 12.3-ounce packages )
  • vanilla extract (1 tsp.)
  • strawberries, sliced (10)
  • mint sprigs for garnish, optional (10)


  1. Place chocolate chips and nondairy milk in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave for 1 minute. Let sit for 2 minutes.

  2. Drain excess water from the tofu. Place tofu, vanilla, and chocolate chip/nondairy milk mixture in a food processor or blender and process until smooth. Variation: Add a chopped banana to the blender or food processor when you process the tofu and chocolate together.

  3. Transfer into small individual serving dishes and chill for 2 hours in the refrigerator or 30 minutes in the freezer. Serve topped with strawberries and garnished with mint, if using. Stored in a covered container in the refrigerator, leftover Chocolate Mousse will keep for up to 3 days.
