As I’m preparing to travel for longer periods, I’m attempting to simplify my cooking. I know I won’t have access to a fully stocked pantry while traveling.
This is my four ingredient, super simple, chocolate mousse recipe for 1 piggy person. You can easily increase the quantities for however many servings you need.
Easy Vegan Chocolate Mousse
Vegan Chocolate Mousse Recipe
- 50 grams of dark chocolate (For New Zealanders – I used two x 25g Whittakers Dark Ghanian Sante Bars, the ones with the brown wrappers, 72% cocoa)
- 125 grams firm silken tofu
- 4 tsp agave
- dash of vanilla extract
To melt the chocolate, put a small amount of boiling water in pot. Place a heat proof glass or metal bowl with the chocolate in it on top of the pot. The water shouldn’t touch the bowl. It will take a couple minutes to melt.
Blend melted chocolate with other ingredients in food processor. This doesn’t need to set in the fridge. It will be mousse consistency straight away. It tastes just like the plain chocolate but with a mousse texture. If you like a less strong cocoa flavor, use a chocolate with a lower cocoa percentage.
I'm Kate, a vegan digital nomad from New Zealand who has been traveling full-time since May 2013. I'm an expert on saving money on trips without sacrificing comfort. My spouse and I travel on a budget of around $3000 a month. We travel in places that are traditionally considered expensive like New York and Hawaii.
