Rainbow Mousse

This recipe I will admit was two things: Super easy and super tasty! I wanted to try and make a mousse with a difference. One that didn’t contain nuts for all those with allergens or just watching the calories and I wanted to try and not use Avocado for all those people who don’t like Avocado. Which I think is blasphemy… If I was a fruit I would marry an Avocado.

But enough about me being weird… here is a Mousse Recipe with a difference! Silken Tofu anyone??

What are the benefits of Silken Tofu?

Silken tofu is definitely a favourite ingredient among vegans and vegetarians for obvious reasons but what are some benefits of this silky smooth substance?

Tofu is made from soybean curds and is naturally gluten-free, low in calories, contains no cholesterol and is an excellent source of protein, iron and calcium. Tofu is a complete source of dietary protein which provides all the essential amino acids needed in the diet thanks to soy being the prime component of tofu. Soybeans are high in healthy polyunsaturated fats, especially omega-3 alpha-linolenic acid. Soy has also been linked to decreasing the risks of osteoporosis and also helps to lessen PMS symptoms, regulate blood sugar and prevent migraine headaches.

ALL IN MODERATION THOUGH!

Just because a soy has certain benefits certainly doesn’t mean that you should be having soy for every meal of the day, 7 days a week.
