Chocolate Merlot Mousse

A mousse does not necessarily have to be a dessert, though (like the recipe below) it frequently is. The word actually refers to the light and airy texture of the dish. This recipe comes from a fabulous online magazine: The Vegan Culinary Experience. It was created by one of their long-time contributors, Sharon Valencik. She added a unique twist to her classic vegan mousse for a dessert that is simply divine.


5 oz. bittersweet dark chocolate, melted
1½ cups silken tofu, drained & at room temperature
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup merlot or grape juice
1-1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1-2 Tbs. chocolate shavings (for garnish)
berries of your choice (for garnish)

Tip: Though it only takes 5 minutes to prepare, this needs to set for at least four hours to achieve a mousse texture; otherwise, it will be a very tasty pudding.


  1. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler or in the microwave (see instructions here).
  2. Process all the ingredients in food processor or blender until creamy.
  3. Spoon into 8 ramekins or glasses; cover and refrigerate several hours before serving.
  4. Just before serving, sprinkle the chocolate shavings and berries over each.
