This version of chocolate mousse is made dark chocolate which is full of anti oxidants and tofu, a good source of protein and contains all eight essential amino acids. It is also an excellent source of iron and calcium. This dessert is vegan, gluten-free, egg-free and dairy-free. Perfect as a light after dinner treat or as a healthy snack as it's lower in fat and sugar than the original.
