This chocolate mousse has a beautiful creamy texture and you only need a small portion to get your chocolate fix. Make sure you check the buying tips to help you select a safe tofu.

  1. Break the dark chocolate into chunks and place in a small saucepan with the white sugar and low FODMAP milk. Heat over low heat and mix continuously until the chocolate melts and the sugar dissolves. The chocolate mixture should have a dark silky smooth and slightly shiny look with no traces of un-dissolved sugar.
  2. Drain the tofu and place in the food processor container with the double blade. Blend until smooth. Then add the melted chocolate mixture and blend until evenly mixed through.
  3. Scoop the mixture into four small bowls, ramekin dishes, or cupcake holders. Place in the fridge to cool. The flavour of the mousse changes and deepens as the tofu cools (do not serve this mousse warm).
  4. Serve cold with a platter of low FODMAP fruit like banana and oranges.

Buying Tips

Choose a dark chocolate that doesn't contain inulin or high FODMAP sweeteners like honey, high fructose corn syrup, agave syrup or fructose. Also avoid dark chocolate that contains high FODMAP fruit or nuts.

Make sure you buy firm tofu (these are often preserved in liquid, just drain the liquid off before using). The high levels oligosaccharides/FODMAPs are drained off with the liquid and during the manufacturing process, which makes the tofu low FODMAP. Avoid using Silken tofu as this product is high FODMAP.
