Healthy Chocolate Dessert?? Yes!!!
As you can see, I am on a health kick. After being on vacation and having ice cream every night for the last week, I really have to make up for my naughtiness. I was craving chocolate but really didn’t want the extra fat, calories and sugar to go with it. So I came up with this light and healthy chocolate mousse. It has no dairy or sugar and is very low in fat. So go indulge!
I won’t tell my kids the secret ingredient but I will let them have some for breakfast. Imagine that……chocolate mousse for breakfast. Dad may be great because he gets the chocolate cake(remember Bill Cosby?) but Mom gives everyone dessert for breakfast.
Can you guess the secret ingredient? Well here goes…….
Yes, tofu! And better yet, low fat tofu. It makes the mousse creamy and smooth. You could add sugar if you’d like, but I thought Splenda gave it a nice sweetness without the calories of sugar. Make sure you serve it chilled. It tastes much better that way. Enjoy!
