Pippi's Recipe Review: The Vegan Stoner Chocolate Mousse

     Each week my Sister in Law- Heidi, my mom, my cousin -Jasmine and I choose recipes to experiment with. We have been picking 2 main courses and a sweet treat. But there are no rules that it has to be this way. Click -> to read More about our weekly recipe project. To participate, you can join our group on facebook {www.facebook.com/groups/recipeteam/} or leave a comment with your own review and recipe suggestions. We recently created this facebook group so that we could share with friends outside of our family group.

     This week's sweet treat was Chocolate Mousse. Use your own recipe. I have made vegan chocolate mousse in the past, but while I was making Falafel Pie a al The Vegan Stoner, I noticed that The Vegan Stoner also has a recipe for Chocolate Mousse. I figured I would just make this The Vegan Stoner week!

Gonna get right in to this...

  • For some reason, I can't keep a bag of chocolate chips in the house without someone busting into them almost immediately and without me being in the room to bust them.  I made up the difference with some super dark chocolate that I had in the cupboard. (Why couldn't the thief just eat that?) I don't own a microwave, so I use the double boil method. Slow and low. 
  • Meanwhile, I blended the tofu with milk. The recipe calls for soy cream, but I used Blue Diamond Almond Coconut milk. The recipe also calls for coco powder, and even though I have that, I opted for the Dark Hot Chocolate mix that I have. 
  • The last change that I made was this: When blending the mousse, I added 1/2 of the melted chocolate to the mixture. 
  • After layering the vanilla graham cookies on the bottom, then the sliced strawberries, and drizzled the agave (just a touch), I added the mousse, then the melted chocolate on the top. 
Verdict: Oh my goooooooooey goodness! This was so incredibly rich and delish! One change that I would make is that I would maybe not layer in the strawberries, as they leak and the next day the cookies are a soggy mess. That isn't entirely bad, I know, but not too appetizing. I would also make these in smaller portion sizes b/c it is so rich! All in all, a BIG hit and two thumbs up from chef mom.


  1. It looks so decadent and yummy. I like the cookies on the bottom, I should try that.

  2. Decadent is a goooood word for this! :)
