What’s good about it?

Adding silken tofu to the dessert is a great way to increase the protein content of this dessert.

  1. Place the chocolate and almond milk in a pan and gently melt over a low heat, stirring to combine.
  2. Put the melted chocolate into a food processor or blender with all the remaining ingredients for the mousse and blend until smooth and creamy.
  3. Make up the crumble topping. Place the pecans and cacao powder in a food processor and process until roughly chopped. Add the raisins and vanilla and pulse to form rough crumbs
  4. Spoon the mousse into glasses and top with the crumble mixture.  Decorate if wished.




Did You Know?

Instead of nuts for the crumble topping you could use gluten free oats or a combination of gluten free rice pops and oats.
