Vegan Chocolate Mousse

This recipe sounds weird, especially if you're not a vegan. BUT, I'm not a vegan, and I just happen to be obsessed with soy products, so I'm lovin' it. PLUS, it seems healthy somehow....

Vegan Chocolate Mousse Recipe

1/2 cup organic chocolate soy milk
9 or 10 ounce bag of semisweet vegan chocolate chips (NOT carob chips)
12 ounces silken tofu
1 teaspoon natural pure almond extract

Pour the chocolate milk into a small pot and bring to a simmer. Remove the milk from heat and let cool a bit while you melt down the chocolate chips.

You can melt the chocolate chips in a double boiler or microwave. In the microwave, just melt in 30 second increments, and stir between each.

Add the soy milk and silken tofu to the melted chocolate chips. Process with a hand or regular blender until completely smooth. Stir in the almond extract. Taste and adjust for flavor, adding a bit more extract if needed.

Chill in the big bowl (or in individual bowls) for at least 1 1/2 hours, the longer the better.
