Ingredients

  • 200 grams / 7 oz dairy-free dark chocolate best quality to can manage
  • 300 grams / 10 oz organic silken tofu placed on a paper towel for 5 minutes to drain
  • 2 and 1/2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup / 125 ml chocolate almond milk
  • 1/4 tsp peppermint extract
  • pinch fine sea salt

Instructions

  • Create a bain-marie. Place a heat-proof glass bowl over a saucepan of water (the bowl shouldn’t be touching the water, so make sure to pick a small plan and a big bowl) over low heat. Add the chocolate to the glass bowl and allow it melt slowly while you prepare the tofu.
  • After draining the tofu on a paper towel add it to a blender with the maple syrup and chocolate almond milk and blend it until smooth.
  • Carefully add the melted chocolate to the blender - while the blender is running on low speed - along with the peppermint extract and a small pinch of salt and blend until smooth. You may have to turn off the blender and scrape down the sides to completely combine the mixture.
  • You can now serve as is or pop the mousse in the fridge to serve later.

Notes

You can melt your chocolate in the microwave if you prefer. Simply pop the chocolate in a heat-proof bowl and microwave for 30 seconds (or 20 seconds if at a high temperature) then take the bowl out and give it a stir. Pop the bowl back in the microwave and repeat the process of cooking for 30 seconds, stopping, stirring and returning until the chocolate is melted through.
