This velvety, dairy-free mousse is healthy enough to eat every day. One dish will feed two people after dinner—or one very hungry person. Serving tip: On cool spring evenings, it's delightful served warm. Ingredient tip: When fresh raspberries are out of season, use frozen, gently thawed berries.
Recipe Ingredient Details:
1 1/2 cups plain soy milk
1/2 cup cocoa nibs (plus more for garnish)
1/3 cup honey
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1 pinch salt
1 1/2 cups silken tofu (puréed until very smooth)
1/2 cup dairy-free whipped topping (optional)
1 pint fresh raspberries
Combine soy milk and cocoa nibs in a small saucepan; bring to a gentle simmer over medium-high heat and cook for 1 minute. Remove from heat, cover, and let stand for 25 minutes. Strain into a bowl, pressing nibs with the back of a spoon to extract liquid. Discard nibs and set liquid aside.
In a heavy saucepan, combine honey, cornstarch, and salt, mixing to form a smooth paste. Slowly stir in cocoa nib infusion, mixing until smooth. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture begins to thicken, 3-4 minutes. Reduce heat and stir in puréed tofu. Cook for 2 minutes longer over medium-low heat, until thick and creamy.
Transfer to four 1/2-cup ramekins. Refrigerate for several hours. Just before serving, top each mousse with a dollop of whipped topping, if desired, and garnish with berries and cocoa nibs.
