Recipe 2: Layered Banana & Chocolate Tofu Mousse with Berry Chia Jam & Strawberry Whey Hey

Whey Hey Recipe Challenge #2

This tastes far too naughty for it to be in any way healthy but fear not, this indulgent dessert is full of clean eating ingredients. The chocolate ‘mousse’ adds a rich layer in between the very tasty and fruity Berry Chia Jam, while the topping of Strawberry Whey Hey ice cream finishes this off perfectly – one to serve for others maybe!

For the Banana & Chocolate Tofu Mousse:

  • 1 x 300g pack of silken tofu
  • 1 banana
  • Splash of apple juice
  • ½ tub of Quark (fat-free soft cheese)
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1-2 tbsp stevia
  • Few drops of vanilla essence

Simply place all ingredients together in a blender and whizz up until totally smooth. Add more juice if too thick; you want it a creamy ‘mousse’ like texture. This will make about 3-4 servings. Leave to chill until needed.

For the Berry Chia Jam:

  • 150g frozen mixed berries
  • 1 tbsp stevia (or to taste)
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds

Simply put the berries in a small pan with a dash of water, heat up, simmer until the juices run out then stir in the chia seeds. Simmer for a further few minutes (you may want to add more water as the seeds will quickly absorb liquid) then pour into a tub, leave to cool then keep in the fridge until needed.

Get tucking in! Using wine glasses or sundae dishes, spoon some of the berry chia jam at the bottom (about ⅔ of the glass). Fill another third with the chocolate tofu mousse, then spoon in a tub of Strawberry Whey Hey ice cream which should just about fill to the top. Sprinkle with flaked almonds then you’re ready to go!
