Calling all chocolate lovers! Healthy meets decadent in this luscious tofu chocolate mousse recipe infused with cinnamon. So easy and delicious!
Thanks so much to my friend Terra for sharing her delicious tofu chocolate mousse recipe with me so that I can share it with you!
Fair warning, it’s super rich and chocolatey-not for the faint of heart. But it IS loaded with heart-healthy and brain-healthy ingredients and will satisfy all your chocolate cravings. I promise!
Ingredients to make Tofu Chocolate Mousse
The ingredient list for this tofu chocolate mousse is super simple. All you need are
- Tofu. Use extra firm. (This works if you’re following a low FODMAP diet). Also, I try to use organic soy products to avoid GMOs, but use whichever you prefer.
- Dark chocolate. I used unsweetened dark chocolate, but if you like your chocolate mousse a little sweeter, opt for bittersweet.
- Sweetener. Cane sugar works well here. If you make this with a non-nutritive sweetener like allulose, monk fruit, or erythritol, please let me know how it turns out!
- Milk. I use soy milk to thin the chocolate mousse out, otherwise it’s too thick for the blender. Try almond milk for a low FODMAP option.
- Cinnamon. Chocolate and cinnamon are a match made in heaven. Enough said!
- Egg white. This is an optional addition if you don’t want a vegan version, and want a more traditional chocolate mousse consistency. Or, you might try aqua faba in place of the whipped egg white to keep it vegan.
Easy Tofu Chocolate MoussePrint Recipe Pin Recipe
- 5 ounces dark chocolate, unsweetened or bittersweet
- 8 ounces tofu, extra firm
- 3 1/2 tablespoons cane sugar
- 6 tablespoons soy milk, or other milk of choice
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 2 egg white, optional-see recipe notes.
- Melt chocolate and sugar together in a double boiler. If you don’t have a double boiler, melt the chocolate in the microwave, then stir in the sugar.
- Puree chocolate, sugar and tofu in blender. Add milk as needed to, one tablespoon at a time, to achieve your desired consistency.
- Add cinnamon and blend until well combined. Chill in the refrigerator until ready to serve (vegan version). Or, see instructions below for non-vegan version.
- For a more traditional chocolate mousse consistency, beat egg whites to a semi-stiff peak in a separate bowl. Fold egg white into chocolate mousse mixture, being careful not to over mix. Serve or refrigerate until ready to eat.

wow, unsweetened chocolate! you are intense EA. i just bought my first set of cocoa baking squares (with no sugar) and it was unbelieveably bitter hahaha. this mousse looks healthy and so good!
Yum! I love chocolate (in case you missed it, I wrote a whole post about it the other day: http://bit.ly/sPsKOk). And as always you’re pics are so mouth-watering i could eat the computer screen!
You could just stop at the chocolate + cinnamon picture – swoon! And my fridge has been known to “hide” many things over the years. Admittedly, tofu is not always on top of my list but I’ll sure buy it for this recipe.
Thanks for all our comments everyone! I still haven’t solved the mystery….My family will eat tofu when I serve it, but I seriously doubt they would swipe a container and eat it on their own. If I do ever solve the mystery I will let you know 🙂
Maybe they swiped it so you WOULDN’T serve it 🙂
I am so distracted, I need to know what the real tofu story was, that’s too weird. Did your family confess?
Yum! EA, as always, you post an inspired and tasty dish. I can hardly wait to whip up a batch of chocolate mousse. Although, here’s a curious thing. Chocolate makes me sneeze! It always has. No other allergic reactions, just the sneezes. Most people look at me oddly when I explain the trigger after my sneeze attack (which is never very charming or lady-like). I can’t be the only one, can I?
Wow, this looks incredible!! I love the addition of tofu..what a great idea!
That story is too funny!!
Looks fantastic. Love the idea of tofu for a boost of protein.
i love chocolate a lot…who doesn’t ? i’ve had a cookie disaster 😀 the mousse looks gorgeous !
looks great i made my first choc mousse last week, love that you added tofu cool
Too funny! I can see Nick hiding tofu behind his beer (although I wouldn’t mind him hiding it, I’m not a huge fan!). Tofu upsets my stomach, however, I really love mousse and this sounds like a recipe I would like to try (sometimes the silken tofu doesn’t bother me as much). I want to make this for my nutrition class! Thanks for the recipe.
Hmm, curious. I know how fast TJ’s sells out of their stuff so I doubt they’d have anything on the shelves from that long ago!
it sounds + looks just delicious + i love that it uses tofu! i’ll definitely be giving this a try soon. hopefully i won’t have any interference with a tofu-swapping ghost like you did!
Can’t wait to see this on Healthy Aperture 😉 Yum!
You had me at “chocolate”. The chocolate photos on this post drew me here. I was rivetted to the story and later the recipe. Oh my, I feel like spooning into that big lump of chocolate!
