Decadent Chocolate Mousse, with sea salt and lime

If you’ve never tried my Decadent Chocolate Mousse before, you’re in for a sweet surprise. This recipe is a favourite with my chocolate-loving friends, they LOVE it!!

Such a great pick-me-up when you’re feeling the pressure, this simple, quick, delicious pud is full of happy goodness.

Just six ingredients. Organic silk tofu, raw cacao, vanilla essence, zest and juice of half a lime, a pinch of sea salt, and xylitol, which is the only known sweetener that actively promotes dental health – look it up! It’s derived from the birch tree, it tastes like sugar, and it has multiple health benefits. What’s not to like apart from the name?

Silk tofu provides a beautiful creamy base, and raw cacao adds to the decadence. As well as the flavour, raw cocoa has multiple health benefits, and is high in Iron, Calcium, Magnesium and Potassium. I use Xylitol in place of sugar – it just tastes the same and you use the same amount as you would sugar, no fiddling about with measures.

The ingredients we use are simple:
¼ cup Organic Raw cacao powder
¼ cup of Xylitol
2 x 300g cartons of Organic Silken tofu
1tsp of vanilla essence
Juice and zest of 1 lime
1 tsp of sea salt
Fresh berries for toppings or shavings of Vegan dark chocolate.

Open the Organic Silken Tofu and drain the excess water, place on a paper towel for at least 10 mins.

Throw the ingredients into a blender or food processor. Do it gently, though, it’s not a sport. Blend until completely smooth, occasionally scraping down the sides. Then pop the mousse into a bowl and chill for an hour, add your toppings, grab your spoon, and Instagram it!
