Cheese Mousse made with Tofu and Yogurt

Cheese Mousse made with Tofu and Yogurt

I love cream cheese and fresh cream. I cut the calories by using lots of tofu and yogurt. There's no gelatin in this, so it's light and fluffy.


1/2 of a large block
Plain yogurt
350 g
Cream cheese
80 g
30 g
1/2 tablespoon


1. Drain the yogurt and tofu beforehand. Line a sieve with paper towels, and put in the yogurt and crumbled tofu. Leave for a while.
2. Bring cream cheese to room temperature. Put the drained yogurt and tofu, sugar, lemon juice, and cream cheese in a blender and press start. Blend until smooth.
3. Pour the mixture into containers of your choice, and chill in the refrigerator. Optionally, serve with seasonal fruit.
4. Note that the tofu will be 100 to 120 g and the yogurt will be 170 g, after they are drained. If you use silken tofu, the mousse will become very light, and if you use firm tofu, it will be quite firm.
