Valentine's Day Vegan Chocolate Strawberry Trifle

This vegan dessert is delicious and packed with protein and healthy fats. These should be enjoyed cold, so don't skip that step. The longest part of these is letting the mousse cool and assembly. Enjoy leftover mousse with some granola and fresh fruit as a parfait.

  • 5 graham crackers (whole sheets)
  • 8 strawberries

Vegan Strawberry Mousse

  • 1 block of silken firm tofu
  • 3/4 cup fresh strawberries
  • 3.5 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1.5 tsp vanilla extract

Chocolate Cashew Cream

  • 1/2 cup cashews (soaked)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp sugar


Vegan Strawberry Mousse

  • Add the tofu and the strawberries to a blender and blend until smooth.
  • Add the lemon juice, maple syrup, and vanilla extract.
  • Continue to blend until smooth.
  • Place into an airtight container and chill for at least 2 hours prior to serving.

Chocolate Cashew Cream

  • Soak the cashews for 2-3 hours or until they are easily broken with a squeeze.
  • Drain the cashews and dump into a blender with half of the water water.
  • Blend until smooth. Add more water until you get the desired consistency. I get thicker cream when I use whole cashews than pieces or halves so I adjust the water slightly. It should be thick, similar to a smoothie or milkshake consistency.
  • Add the cocoa and sugar. Continue to blend until smooth. If it's too thick, add more water until you get the desired consistency.
  • I like to taste mine to make sure it's chocolatey and sweet enough. It will be with the other elements but it's easier to adjust if it's still in the blender.
  • Scoop out of the blender and store in an air tight container until serving.

Assembling the Vegan Chocolate Strawberry Trifle

  • Crush 2 graham crackers. Split and place in the bottom of serving glasses.
  • Next spoon a layer of the strawberry mousse over the graham crackers.
  • Layer it with some sliced strawberries.
  • Then spread some chocolate cashew cream over the strawberries.
  • Repeat, layering the graham crackers, mousse, strawberries, and chocolate cream until the serving glasses are full.
  • Refrigerate until chilled or place in the freezer for about 20 minutes. These should be served cold.


This is a vegan dessert for those who want the delicious flavors of a high-end restaurant with vegan ingredients. It's easy and delicious!
