Vegan Chocolate Orange Pots

Vegan chocolate orange pots - this easy dessert is a healthier option that is still rich, indulgent and very satisfying. It uses silken tofu as a base which is blended with melted chocolate to create a decadent dessert somewhere in between a pudding and a mousse.

  • 349 g (12 oz) firm silken tofu
  • 130 g (4 ½ oz) dark chocolate (70% cocoa solids) finely chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 2 Tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 Tablespoons orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon orange extract
  • pinch salt


  • Melt the chocolate, either in short bursts in the microwave, stirring well in between each one; or in a heat-proof bowl set over a pan of gently simmering water (don't let the base of the bowl touch the water).
  • Pour the melted chocolate into a blender and add the silken tofu, cocoa powder, maple syrup, orange extract, orange juice and a pinch of salt.
  • Blend until very smooth, stopping to scrape down the sides as necessary.
  • Taste and add more maple syrup, cocoa powder or orange extract as needed.
  • Divide the mixture between 4 glasses or bowls and refrigerate until set, about 4 hours.
