Vegan Pumpkin Pie Chocolate Mousse + Zing Bars Giveaway!

November 14, 2011 · 28 comments

A few weeks ago I received a delicious package in the mail! I almost SQUEEEEE’ed with delight!

Zing Bars = YUM-O! Since I travel for my job, I love finding healthy, delicious treats for breakfast, or even just a fun snack.

There are six different flavors to choose from, and each one is designed with someone in mind.  The Chocolate Coconut is gluten, soy and dairy free.  Chocolate Peanut Butter is Gluten and Soy free.  The Almond Blueberry is gluten and soy free.  The Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip is gluten, soy and dairy free.  The Cashew Cranberry Orange is gluten, soy and dairy free, and the Oatmeal Chocolate Chip is gluten and soy free.

My favorite was the Almond Blueberry, my hubbies favorite was the the Chocolate Peanut Butter! From Zing Bars, the Chocolate Peanut Butter is the top flavor pick

The bars are made with organic, all natural ingredients such as almond butter, rice protein concentrate, tapioca syrup, brown rice crisps, and many more wonderful ingredients!

From Zing Bars website – “The bars are, wheat and gluten free, soy and corn free, 10-13 grams of protein, 3-6 grams of fiber, low glycemic ingredients,” and so much more.

Stand by to learn more about winning some of these delicious bars, but first I decided to share a fun recipe!

I found a healthy mousse recipe awhile back, and love enjoying this rich, creamy treat.  A few weeks ago my dear friend EA from The Spicy RD made the chocolate mousse, and shared it on her site!  Since the bars are very healthy, and some are dairy free.  I needed to make a treat that was also dairy free.

Just in time for the holidays!

Author:
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 6-8
Ingredients
  • ¾ cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 4 Tbsp of sugar
  • 12 oz (3/4 of pkg) extra firm tofu
  • 1 (15oz) can of pumpkin
  • 1½ tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • About 1 cup water
Instructions
  1. In a double boiler, melt chocolate with sugar.
  2. In blender, blend tofu (you may need some water to help in blending the tofu,) add melted chocolate and continue mixing, you may need some water again to help puree the mousse.
  3. In medium bowl, add pumpkin, and pureed chocolate tofu mixture, and pumpkin pie spice, mix well.
  4. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before serving.
  5. Enjoy!
Notes
Instead of 4 egg whites, I used pumpkin puree to make this recipe vegan. The mousse is not completely creamy, because of the pumpkin texture. My chocolaholic husband said even with the different texture, this treat is still delicious!

I decided to have fun and add a zing bar to the treat! I added the oatmeal chocolate chip bar, a sweet chocolatey bar.  A perfect compliment to the sweet chocolatey mousse!

    Yay for healthy desserts :) my favorite are chia pudding [with non-dairy milk and stevia] and vegan chocolate mousse [made with avocado, raw cacao powder and stevia]. Love the idea of pumpkin and chocolate together, and the bars sound PERFECT for me. Went completely gluten and dairy free a month ago [tho I’m still dealing with my weekly dark chocolate ice cream treat].

    I just found you via SITS Facebook post & decided to give you a follow too!

    These bars look fantastic!  I am always looking for healthy food on the go.  My favorite healthy dessert is simple — peel a banana, freeze it, eat it.

    Best,
    Brooke

    My favourite healthy dessert right now is a pomegranate. They’re expensive, so I don’t buy them too often, but they’re a real treat when I do.

    oh gosh, so many great healthy desserts out there!  But if it has to be REALLY healthy, then I love protein powder cakes!
