Prep time 15mins
Cook time 5mins
Serves or Makes: 4


  • 14 ounces firm tofu, drained
  • 6 tablespoons cacao powder
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1/ 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon instant coffee
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 ounces dark chocolate, melted
  • 4 tablespoons plant milk


  • Step 1

    Add tofu, cacao powder, maple syrup, vanilla extract, instant coffee, and salt to a food processor. Blend until mostly combined, then add in melted chocolate. Blend again until smooth. Add plant milk, 1 tbsp at a time, as needed to help blend and achieve desired texture. (Less milk will make a thicker mousse.)

  • Step 2

    Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge. Leftovers will keep for about 3-4 days. The mousse also thickens as it sits in the fridge, so you may need to add extra plant milk before serving.
