Mocha Mousse

So this mousse is a good option for the lactose intolerant... It uses tofu and greek yogurt (seems like all my lactose intolerant friends are able to eat greek yogurt... no clue why!)


The recipe calls for silken tofu... I just found out there is such thing as chocolate silken tofu??? I'm totally using that the next time I make this!



Although this was pretty good, I felt like it still had a little tofu undertone to it... next time I'm also going to add some kind of liquor... maybe amaretto? Or Kahlua?? YUM That should fix the problem :D



The- Best- For- Last Chocolate Mousse
recipe from Prevention
12 ounces soft silken tofu, drained (trying chocolate silken tofu next time)
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon almond extract
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips, melted
1/2 cup fat-free greek-style yogurt
(adding some kind of liquor next time too...)

Directions
Place the tofu, vanilla extract, and almond extract in a food processor and blend until smooth. Add the chocolate and blend for 1 minute. Scrape the sides with a rubber spatula and blend for 1 minute longer or until incorporated. Pour into a large bowl.
Fold in the yogurt just until blended. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

i like the greek yogurt addition :) yum!

greek yogurt has been strained to remove the whey, which has alot of the lactose!

People who are lactose intolerant can generally consume yogurt and kefir, because the live cultures "eat" the lactose (sugar) during the fermentation process - hence the lactose is no longer present in fermented dairy. This looks great, I've made it with just tofu, will have to add some yogurt next time!

This looks really good. There's a recipe in Clean Eating for a pumpkin pudding that uses pretty much just silken tofu, pumpkin puree and (real) maple syrup. I wanted to try it but was out of syrup.

Just wanted to say to NOT buy the chocolate silken tofu. It tastes HORRIBLE, and it's loaded with sugar. It's about as caloric as low-fat ice cream, but doesn't taste good at all. =(
