Chocolate Soy Mousse Parfait in a Jar (via TheBokeEffect)

(“chocolate soy mousse parfait” by Andrea Goh, via


  • 300g silken tofu
  • 200g quality chocolate
  • Fresh blueberries
  • Granola
  • 50ml whipping cream, 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
  • Few sprigs of fresh thyme (just the leaves) – keep it fresh with an Herb Saver
  • Chunky raspberry/strawberry jam – keep your jams organized with a Jelly/Jam Lid

Step 1 – Prep (the day before)

  • Melt the chocolate using the double boiled method (heating the bowl with steam):
    • Fill pot about 1/4 full with water and bring to a boil.
    • Reduce heat to a simmer and fit the bowl into the pot. The bottom of the bowl should be 2″ to 3″ above the water.
  • Blend silken tofu into melted chocolate until smooth.
  • Chill in the fridge overnight.

Step 2 – Layer

  • Layer the chocolate mousse, blueberries, jam, and granola into a mason jar. TheBokeEffect started with some mousse, followed by a layer of blueberries, granola, and a spoonful of jam followed by more mousse (with some thyme in between for refreshing flavor).

Step 3 – Topping

  • Whip 50ml of cream with 1/2 tsp vanilla and spoon on top of the parfait.
  • Sprinkle on a few thyme leaves, blueberries and granola before serving for a pretty presentation.


Remember to snag that handy Herb Saver. It’ll keep the green in your Thyme, and in your wallet.
