How To Make lo-carb mousse-peanut butter or chocolate

  • 1
    Drain tofu and blend in blender till smooth.
  • 2
    Melt peanut butter on low heat. Add sweetener to taste. Make it extra sweet because once the mixture is chilled it will not taste as sweet.
  • 3
    Add melted peanut butter to blender and blend again. If too dry, add almond milk (or dairy milk) just to blend. Empty into a serving bowl and cool. NOTE: For chocolate mousse, substitute 4 oz. Ghiradelli 100% chocolate for the peanut butter in the above directions.

    EXTRA FUN: Place mixture in baggie and cut off one point to use as a "frosting bag". Squeeze out little "kisses" sized pieces onto parchment paper on a cookie sheet and freeze. When frozen, remove and place in a bowl in the freezer. Pop in your mouth frozen when you get a craving--Just like ice cream dots! YUM!
