Today I found out that I accidentally bought the wrong tofu at the #ekoplaza . I bought silk tofu instead of “regular “tofu. Silk tofu is soft and therefore more suitable for the preparation of desserts. I did not have time to exchange the tofu anymore, so I decided the recipe “chocolate mousse of silk tofu” from #LekkerWetenzomer of the Ekoplaza. I slightly deviated from the recipe, because I did not have coconut oil.


  • Blender
  • Scale
  • Silk tofu (400 g)
  • Raw cocoa powder (3 tbsp)
  • Banana (1)
  • Dates without pit (2)
  • Dark chocolate (100 g)
  • Coconut shreds
  • Dried cranberries
  • Chocolate pieces

My look at the description of the recipe

The description of the recipe was quite clear and useful supplemented by a video, in which the preparation was smoothly presented. The description of the recipe and the video did not explain how to melt dark chocolate 'au bain-marie'. For this explanation I went to search on the internet. In the online #allerhande I had found a good explanation with video. For this method of melting (briefly summarized) you need a saucepan with a layer of boiling water. Then put the chocolate in a bowl that can withstand heat. Keep this bowl above the pan with boiling water, without the bowl touching the water. Then stir the chocolate until it melts. Hereby a link to the recipe of the Allerhande van de Albert Heijn on the 'au bain-marie' melting of chocolate.

My look at the preparation of the recipe

I found the preparation easy. The blender was ready and in it I put (according to the recipe) the drained silk tofu, cocoa powder, dates, banana and the melted dark chocolate. After I blended the ingredients well, I put the chocolate mousse in a bowl. Unlike the recipe, I happened to have a bag of ready-made grated coconut. I did this as a topping on the chocolate mousse. I had added the topping (apart from the recipe) with a small handful of dried cranberries and pieces of chocolate. After that, I put the chocolate mousse in the fridge for at least half an hour, for the firmness of the structure.

Did I like it?

The taste of the chocolate mousse was delicious. I will definitely make this chocolate mousse again, but then I will add a little more (think of 30 grams) dark chocolate to create a stronger chocolate taste.
