There’s a secret ingredient in this mousse, and it’s not the Nutella. Silken tofu lends creaminess in place of traditional heavy cream and egg whites. I promise you, even the most dubious will be convinced! This is utter decadence.

  • 11.5 oz 1 box silken tofu
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup chocolate hazelnut spread i.e. Nutella
  • chocolate shavings for garnish
  • fresh berries for garnish
  • shredded unsweetened coconut for garnish


  • Place silken tofu and vanilla extract in a blender. Blend until smooth and creamy. 
  • Add Nutella and process until fully blended. Spoon into serving cups and refrigerate for at least 3 hours until well chilled and rather firm in consistency.
  • Garnish with chocolate curls, berries, and shredded coconut, and serve cold.



This is the easiest egg-free mousse you can make! In some ways, the mousse is quite silky, like a pudding -- either way, I promise you will see this disappear so quickly when you serve it!
