silken tofu coffee mousse

Angel Delight conjures fond childhood memories for me. Fluffy, sweet, creamy and delicious. When I was younger, my aunt introduced me to butterscotch angel delight, much to the disgust of my mum who wasn’t too keen on the pre-packaged instant dessert. I had a very sweet tooth as a child. So sweet, in fact, that I proceeded to eat 3 bowls of the beige gloop in one sitting and licked the dish clean too. Now I’m (a little more) grown up and my tastebuds are slightly more refined, I find myself twisting my face in disgust at the thought – yes, I’m a health food snob – and craving something a little less sweet and better for me.

There’s been a packet of silken tofu sitting in my fridge waiting to be transformed into a rice noodle vegetable soup for dinner for about a week. Truth is, all I’ve been craving lately is caffeinated things in dessert form. Pudding form. Mousse, to be exact. Mousse like…angel delight.

This silken tofu coffee mousse has the more-ish texture of the angel delight I adored as a little girl but tastes even better: rich, decadent and a perfect after dinner treat.

Paired with whipped coconut cream, cacao nibs and crushed hazelnuts; it’s my idea of dessert perfection. Now, coffee extract does contain caffeine (sob) so if you’re easily affected by caffeine this is probably best consumed earlier in the day. Perhaps for lunch, or even breakfast (I won’t judge, I eat cake for breakfast on a regular basis).
