Hi shikha! Reworking this mousse to not utilize chocolate is possible but it would probably take a few tries. If I were doing it I'd first substitute the cocoa powder with about ¼ all-purpose flour and increase the silken tofu by about 1 ounce. Then I'd substitute the 4 ounces baking chocolate with about 3 ounces of refined coconut oil or refined cocoa butter (or unrefined if you can't find refined). Then I'd cross my fingers and hope it worked! Good luck!
