Indulge in dessert

If you have a sweet tooth that calls for chocolate, here is a fab vegan dessert for you. Not only is it delish, it's easy to prepare, too.

 Vegan chocolate mousse with raspberry sauce

Delight in vegan chocolate mousse with raspberry sauce as a rich dessert, perfect for a special occasion (or, in my case, a regular Tuesday evening)! This easy-to-whip-up dessert will satisfy your sweet tooth and chocolate craving at the same time.

You might think this recipe needs special ingredients or is difficult to put together, but you'd be wrong. And I really don't want you to miss out on this one. The tofu is what provides the creaminess in this delightful chocolate dessert. Yeah, that's right: tofu.

 Vegan chocolate mousse with raspberry sauce

As far as flavors go, all you'll taste in this treat is chocolate and raspberry sauce. Tofu doesn't really have much of a flavor, and, in fact, it's known for picking up the flavors of the other ingredients you add to it. If you follow a vegan or nondairy diet (and even if you don't), this treat will likely become a staple for you — if you're into rich, chocolaty desserts with a hint of sweet fruit sauce, that is.
