chocolate mousse-- gluten free + dairy free

ive been on a chocolate kick lately. well, thats a lie, i think i've been on a chocolate kick since the day i was born. not a day passes that chocolate doesnt pass my lips. after a visit to a great restaurant last friday my stamina for creating sweet recipes kicked into full gear again.

i've been meaning to eat at watercourse restaurant for long time. i finally happened last weekend.  if youre in the colorado area and you have any type of food restrictions or are looking for a new place to check out - get yourself there. watercourse is a vegetarian joint that caters to vegetarians, vegans and to the food allergy unfortunates. they even have their own dedicated offsite bakery that creates all vegan desserts  (some of which are gluten free - HOOORAH!). i initially wanted to go in to pickup baked goods, but ended up at the bar eating a whopping plate of delicious sweet potato + black bean tacos - which were served red cabbage, peppers,  guacamole + pico di gallo. they were nothing short of heavenly.




shortly after i crammed the tacos down my throat i found myself peering down into a heavenly glow that was the baked goods display counter. i relished over several; not one, not two, but three dessert choices in front of me. there was gf df banana cream pie that looked sinful,  gf df chocolate chip cookies (which i simply couldnt resist) and finally scout cookies. scout cookies. scout cookies. the dude working behind the counter suggested that i not leave without trying one. boy was he right. these things are f%$#ing incredible. made with succunat, sweet potato, walnuts and vegan chocolate. best part of it all - each of the ginormous scouts (reminiscent of a hockey puck drizzled with chocolate) weighs around 1/4 lb. and yes, i demolished two of them by the time i got home. oh yeah, i polished off half of the wicked tasty chocolate chip cookie too. cookie coma. needless to say - i will be frequenting this joint and i cannot wait to get back there.

back to my chocolate kick. since my visit to watercourse i've been craving sweets. in particular chocolate mousse. its all i've been able to think about. i havent had it in years. i hoped into the kitchen and decided it was too hot to turn on the stove and so i came up with a no bake gf df version.  to my amazement i put together a recipe in no time that tastes very much so like the real deal. puddin.

chocolate mousse

  • 8 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips - dairy free 
  • 12 oz box of silken tofu
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp grade b maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp kosher salt
place chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl and microwave in 20 second increments until melted. combine melted chocolate, silken tofu, cocoa powder, maple syrup, honey, vanilla extract and kosher salt in a food processor until well combined. divide pudding amongst cute cups or bowls and place in fridge around an hour (or until chilled). 

note - if you dont have a food processor you are insane. GO GET ONE!

stop by these blogs. NOW.

  1. My favorite gluten free recipe is the simplest cookies you could ever make-- the standard 4-ingredient flourless peanut butter cookies. My husband makes them for me occasionally and it just doesn't get much more comforting than that.

  4. Right now my favorite recipe is chicken salsa. You just put chicken in the crockpot with taco seasoning and salsa. Can add beans or corn and serve with corn tortillas or over rice or over potatoes. Great gluten free meal for company!
