Chocolate mousse is a great dessert that doesn’t take a long time to prepare (this version, literally takes less than 5 minutes). Plus it’s great for entertaining because 1) it looks pretty, 2) it’s delicious, and 3) you can make it ahead of time.
The recipe that I’m about to share with you has to be one of the easiest and most satisfying desserts around. It’s creamy, rich and decadent. Silky texture and deep chocolate flavor in every spoonful. And you won’t believe how quick and easy it is to make, with just two base ingredients, plus a few optional to be added as you wish.
I found this recipe in the Tofu 1-2-3 cookbook by Meribeth Abrams and I decided to give it a try. It turned out very tasty, although a bit too sweet and moist for my taste. Next time I will use less sugar/ syrup. I’m also going to experiment with less oil. Who would have thought that a dessert may contain so much of a healthy stuff and still be delicious!
I’ve been experimenting lately with easy, no-bake desserts, such as no-bake cookies and several chocolate mousse recipes. Since I had a bag of frozen strawberries and a package of silken tofu, I thought “Why not try this combination?” Turns out, this combination produces another winning dessert or snack, that’s rich in protein and low in sugar. You can reduce the sugar even further in this recipe by reducing agave nectar or substituting it with stevia (the herb).
Filled with cholesterol-reducing organic oats, the multifaceted superfood flax, and mixed with almond milk, containing plenty of calcium and vitamin E, these muffins provide an amazing combination of taste and nutrition. They also contain cinnamon, which has its own benefits on top of being delicious, like regulating blood flow and circulation.
This recipe makes 12 muffins, and you can play around and add or subtract or modify as you see fit. I made mine on the thicker side, with more oats for texture, but you can use the recommended amount below if you like a lighter muffin.
What do oatmeal chocolate chip cookies have in common with the Hurricane Sandy and global climate change? Let me explain.
I live in Northern New Jersey, in an area that has been affected by the recent hurricane Sandy.
I’m grateful that my family has not been greatly affected by this disaster, even though our area got a lot of flooding and trees had been broken.
I tried a few different combinations and I have to say, it’s hard to not like this chocolate smoothie. You can have it for breakfast, as a snack, or for dessert. You can also give it to your kids – and they will never know they are drinking their cabbage with their chocolate.
