7 recipes that prove you don't need dairy to make delectable desserts


Gone are the days when desserts need dairy to work. Thanks to plant-based milks (almond, soy, etc.), you can have your cake and eat it, too.


Chocolate mousse

Just like your morning coffee, it is possible to have chocolate mousse without milk and cream. With some organic silky tofu, you can make a decadent milk-free and egg-free mousse. To make it, melt 7 ounces dark chocolate in a double boiler, add 1 1/2 cups silky tofu, and mix with a whisk or a hand blender. Let it sit in the refrigerator for at least 6 hours. Tip: Be sure to choose the right tofu (silky not firm).
