1cupunsweetened apple juice
1/3cupagave nectar or honey
1/8teaspoonfine sea salt
2-1/2cupshulled strawberries, chopped
1-2/3cupsdrained soft silken tofu
Gather six 6-ounce ramekins or dessert glasses, and set aside.
In a medium saucepan, stir together apple juice, agave nectar, cornstarch and salt. Over medium heat, bring to a simmer and stir often.
Reduce heat and continue to simmer, stirring constantly until thickened, about 30 seconds.
Remove saucepan from heat and cool for 10 minutes. (Will be very thick.)
In a food processor, or high-powered blender, add cooled apple juice mixture, chopped strawberries and tofu. Purée until smooth and creamy.
Divide mousse evenly among ramekins or dessert glasses.
Covert and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, until well chilled, or up to 1 day.
You'll definitely want to use silken, or soft, tofu to make this mousse. Unlike regular tofu, silken tofu is sometimes packaged in aseptic boxes (also known as drink boxes) that do not need to be refrigerated.Because of this, you may find silken tofu in another part of your grocery store, apart from the refrigerated section which usually stores regular tofu.Silken tofu helps provide the creamy texture of this mousse and is a suitable replacement for dairy in many vegan/vegetarian recipes. Many dairy-free salad dressings, sauces and desserts will sometimes use puréed silken tofu to help with the thickening and getting to the desired level of creaminess.Serving size: 1 strawberry mousse (about 6 ounces)6*SmartPoints (Green plan)5*SmartPoints (Blue plan)5*SmartPoints (Purple plan)4*PointsPlus (Old plan)
