Vegan Chocolate Mousse (3 ingredients)

Vegan Chocolate Mousse (3 ingredients)

Here’s yet another recipe involving tofu. Yep, I seem to be in a tofu frenzy at the moment! It’s just such a versatile ingredient and you can use it in so many different ways and to create so many amazing recipes, like this right here – chocolate tofu mousse that’s so light and fluffy – perfect as a light after dinner treat. 

This vegan chocolate mousse is also gluten free, dairy free and refined sugar free. It literally takes a few minutes to make. The only thing it involves is melting some (good quality) dark chocolate and whizzing it up with the tofu, then pouring it into glasses/ramekins. The only frustrating part is then waiting for it to set! 

This recipe only calls for only 3 main ingredients – tofu, dark chocolate and maple syrup! The darker the chocolate you use the better. I chose to go with a 90% cocoa variety. The mousse feels light but it’s still quite rich so I would say this recipe makes enough to serve 4 people. 

Vegan Chocolate Mousse (3 ingredients)

Serves – 4


300g soft silken tofu
100g dark chocolate – I used Lindt 70%, melted
2 tbsp maple syrup – or you can use any other liquid sweetener
An optional pinch of salt


Break up the chocolate into a heat-proof bowl and melt in the microwave, stirring every few seconds to make sure the chocolate doesn’t burn.
To a food processor, add the tofu, melted chocolate and maple syrup and blend until smooth. 
Transfer into serving glasses or ramekins and chill in the fridge for an hour or until it’s set.

  1. Your mousse looks so silky and smooth Nadia and your beautiful photos make it look very appealing. I bought a load of silken tofu a while back with big dessert plans which never materialised. I’d better got and check it’s all still in date.

    1. Thank you Choclette 😀 I have a habit of buying ingredients with a recipe in mind then completely forgetting about it until it’s too late 😛

    1. I like super dark chocolate! The great thing about a recipe like this is that it’s so easy to change around depending on your liking 🙂

  2. Tofu Chocolate Mousse was one of the very first recipes I did and got paid for it, so it is quite special to me. But, your images are far superior! Luckily mine are trapped in a Canadian health and fitness website somewhere 😉 Gorgeous, tasty, simple and healthy – what more could anyone want!

  3. I didn’t think that you could use tofu to make a chocolate mousse but sounds like an amazing idea! And looks very delicious too! Thank you for linking to my mango mousse recipe! xx

  4. Thank you SO much for this recipe! It just saved my bacon. I tried making another websites “3 ingredient coconut cream chocolate mousse” and it was an abject failure. I needed this for a special dessert tomorrow and it worked perfectly. I used firm tofu and just added some soy milk to thin it out a bit after blending. I also substituted icing sugar (powdered sugar) for the sweetener and added some coffee liqueur to make it a bit more exotic. I also upped the chocolate to 200g as I had a 500g packet of tofu and just to make sure that it set nicely I added about 1/8th of a cup of coconut oil. The end result was incredible. Thank you so much for this recipe 🙂
