Chocolate Tofu Pie – Chocolate Mousse Pie

 

I came across the idea of using Tofu in milk shakes and desserts recently. I like my soy products so I thought, Wouldn’t it be great if I could make a healthier dessert for my family? This pie is so lusciously silken and creamy. Pretty good considering it’s the healthier option! Healthy doesn’t always have to equate with – bland taste, does it?!

So give this a try: There’s no baking, no eggs, and it can be made totally vegan by substituting the milk and butter as I mention below. And the best part: It can be put together really quick! So try this and let me know what you think.

    Graham Crackers

  • 300 gms firm tofu – Use a brand that you know doesn’t have any after- taste. (I like Unicurd ™). Good tofu should have a relatively clear and fresh taste when eaten as is.

Notes: 
  • This pie gets firmer as it sits.
  • Coconut oil and coconut milk give the pie an extra dimension of flavor. Try it if you like coconut.
  • Butter can be replaced with vegetable oil but the crumb stays more intact is using butter.
  • Don’t entirely cover the pie  with fruits: this makes cutting it harder and also chocolate should just have a hint of fruit for best flavor.
