Best Chocolate Mousse for Your Favorite Vegan Chocolate Dessert
You can make the best chocolate ganache with just a few simple ingredients! What is ganache? Well look at it as a versatile creamy chocolate filling for a pie or tart, a layer in your favorite cake recipe, a mousse to serve with fresh berries in a martini glass. The ideas for using it are endless.
All you need a few basic ingredients:
- Firm or extra firm silken tofu
- vegan semisweet chocolate chips
- coconut butter*
Your sweetener of choice (powdered sugar, agave syrup, or brown rice syrup). For a firm ganache to use in a chocolate cheesecake or pie filling, use one package of silken tofu, 6-8 ounces melted chocolate chips and about three tablespoons coconut butter. Drain the tofu and throw it in your blender. Be sure it is room temperature. Melt your chocolate chips and coconut butter in a double boiler. Turn the blender on low and pour in the chocolate mixture. Turn on high and blend until fully blended and silky smooth.
Pour your mixture over your pie crust and chill overnight for best results. Your ganache will be firm, like the consistency of a cheesecake. Keep refrigerated until ready to serve. Enjoy!
*Coconut butter is made from coconut flakes that have not been defatted or sweetened. It is a dense solid butter when room temperature but melts when lightly heated. Do not refrigerate it. You can save many and make your own if you have a Vitamix or other high powered blender.
