Trust me. Go buy some silken tofu...

Never thought I'd be saying those words, but you really should go buy some silken tofu (the kind in the box). And while you're at it, buy a bar of good chocolate, and some POM or orange juice.  I'm hoping you already have agave nectar and cinnamon at home in your pantry. You see, you'll need them to make this.  Dairy-free chocolate "mousse." This stuff is super easy to make and so good. It totally makes up for the tofu "cheesecake" my older sister brought home from the hippie bakery she worked at in the 70s. As usual, I didn't totally follow the recipe. I added a half teaspoon of cinnamon, because I love the combination of dark chocolate and cinnamon. (If I had orange extract, I would have added a tiny bit of that, too!) I melted chocolate in a bowl over a saucepan of hot water, and I blended the tofu and juice in my Magic Bullet. Said Magic Bullet was too small to mix everything, so I spooned the tofu in to the bowl of melted chocolate and mixed everything there. I have to tell you, the waiting-to-cool part of this recipe is the hardest. I dare you to keep your face out of the refrigerator and your spoon out of that stuff... if you can, you're a better person than me. ;)


  1. I LOVE tofu! And I LOVE using it to make chocolate goodness!

  2. I'm so glad you liked it! My husband was absolutely shocked to find out there was no dairy in it at all. :)
