A dairy-free vegan dark chocolate mousse that is so rich and decadent you'll swear you're cheating! The perfect plant-based dessert to impress your family & friends.


Units Scale
  • 16 oz simple truth organic silken tofu
  • 3.5 oz 100% cocoa Ghirardelli baking chocolate
  • 4 Tbs maple syrup
  • 1 Tbls PB2 powdered peanut butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup fresh blackberries and/or raspberries
  • chocolate shavings for garnish


  1. Let your tofu AND the chocolate come to room temp.
  2. Break up the chocolate and place it in a microwave-safe bowl
  3. Melt your chocolate using the 50% power setting of your microwave, until it is smooth and creamy. 
  4. Alternatively, you can use a double-boiler. 
  5. For the microwave, use short, 30-second intervals so the chocolate does not burn. 
  6. Stir often.
  7. NOTE:  I used 100% cocoa and it took 4 Tbs of maple syrup to sweeten it.  If you use anything less, start with 2 Tbs of maple syrup and taste as you go
  8. Once the tofu is room-temp, blend it and the maple syrup until smooth
  9. Add the PB2 and vanilla and mix well
  10. Finally, stir in the chocolate and blend until creamy.
  11. Pour into glasses or ramekins, top with berries,  and chill in the fridge for 30-60 minutes. 
  12. Chocolate shavings make a nice garnish
