Chocolate Mousse Pie

This Chocolate Mousse Tofu Pie is a creamy, decadent pie that packs in loads of chocolate flavor without the dairy or excess fat!

Chocolate Mousse Pie

This recipe has so many unexpected healthy flavor-makers in it that I half expected it to turn into a complete fail like my Cookie Tragedies. But when I took that first moment-of-truth bite, I was met with creamy, chocolate mousse-y bliss. The cooking gods are finally on my side! Well actually, the no-cook gods. Because this recipe has no cooking involved. Just a lot of blending and pressing and blending and pouring and setting in fridge and BOOM MAGIC and eating.

 

After my success with dates last week in the Tropical Chia Parfait, I was inspired to find a way to make their delicious sweetness AND their annoying stickiness work for me. Turns out, when blended up with a few graham crackers (or if you don’t have these, 1 ½ cups of crushed sweet shortbread cookies) and some butter, you get a crumbly crust that can be pressed into a pie pan.

The filling uses two sources of chocolate for maximum chocolatieness. But the base of this mousse is the tofu. Use a silken or soft variety to create that smooth, creamy consistency.

You just pour the blended filling into the crust, cover, and let set in the fridge for 2 to 3 hours and badabing badaboom you’ve got a scrumptious mousse pie! Top with whipped cream and fresh berries for extra yums.

  1. That looks like a delicious pie! I’ve made chocolate tofu pie before, similar to this, and it is fabulous–I can just imagine this variation is fantastic too!

      Thanks, June! I was pretty surprised at how well the silken tofu just soaked up all that chocolately goodness! It’s been about a month I’d say it’s probably about time for me to make it again 🙂

  2. I love when include protein in some form 🙂

    1. Sarah says:

      Maikki, agreed! Better protein than all the fat in a traditional mousse pie. Plus, it makes me feel better about eating one-too-many slices 🙂

  4. Craig says:

    I think you have a typo in your ingredients. 400g is NOT 40oz.

    1. Sarah says:

      Oops, thanks for pointing that out Craig! It should be 14 oz 🙂
