Chocolate Tofu Mousse

The following recipe and photography was provided by recipe developer and food photographer, Ashley Durand of Plate & Pen.

I know what you’re thinking. Tofu? In a chocolate dessert? Hear me out…it’s very smooth.

It’s also a healthier option than traditional mousse. I love this Cleveland-made tofu for its extra firm texture that breaks down nicely with the bananas in the recipe.

There’s melted chocolate and cocoa powder involved here as well, along with a dash of coconut oil for that chocolaty sheen that makes our mouths water.

This recipe is quick and makes quite a bit for the family, so I encourage you to make it and share!
