Tofu Chocolate Mousse with Fresh Raspberries
Yes, I know. Sounds gross. Sounds wrong. But aren't you kinda curious? Well, you will be pleasantly surprised! Infact I dare you to fool people...if you don't tell them they will never know. It is easy and full of protein and so much better for you than the traditional kind with a vat of whipped cream. Plus the guilt-free factor on the waistline is such a bonus.
2 packages silken tofu (medium firm will work too)
3 8 ounce squares of bakers chocolate or equivalent
4 tablespoons of cocoa powder
4 tablespoons of sugar
2 tablespoon of maple syrup or agave nectar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
pinch of salt
1 cup fresh raspberries
Place chocolate in a medium saucepan and heat up on very low heat just until melted.
Place packages of tofu in a blender.
Add melted chocolate, cocoa powder, sugar, syrup, vanilla, pinch of salt and puree, until smooth.
Place into your favorite bowl or 6 separate parfait cups. Refrigerate for a minimum of 4 hours. Top with fresh raspberries. Serve.
