Chocolate Peanut Butter Mousse [Fast and Healthy!]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Mousse [Fast and Healthy!]

Since seeing this recipe a little over a month ago, I've already made it three times! This chocolate peanut butter mousse is rich and delicious with a wonderful smooth texture. It also takes literally 1 minute to put together, which makes it perfect for Friday night when you want dessert but are too tired for anything complicated.

So what makes this healthy? It's full of protein, healthy fats, and natural sweeteners. The fats and protein help to make it taste rich and satisfying. The natural sweetener gives it enough sweetness to make it dessert, but doesn't make it taste overly sweet. There are only 4 ingredients in this little gem of a dessert-- cocoa powder, peanut butter, maple syrup, and silken tofu. Yes, tofu! If you are not a tofu fan don't worry, you can't taste it in the end result. 

If you are looking for a new healthier dessert to try, and you are a chocolate peanut butter fan, please try this! Let me know what you think. Also, if you want to try more tofu pudding, try my recipe from last summer for banana pudding!

Kaitlyn's Notes:
  • You can definitely taste this straight out of the blender, but I do think it's better if you let it sit in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.  
  • I've kept this in the refrigerator for three days and it still tastes just as good to me on the third day. With the tofu, not sure I'd keep it longer than three days.
  • Mark liked this too! (though he won't choose this over ice cream ;) )
