Looking for a healthy treat to feed your Valentine? Try these Chocolate Mousse Strawberries. If you are not a fan of tofu, I would substitute sugar-free, fat-free chocolate pudding.
1/2 container silken tofu (1/2 pound)
1/4 cup chickpeas, rinsed and drained
5 pitted dates
1/8 cup cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
40 large strawberries, washed and dried
1/4 bar dark chocolate, chopped
- Add all the ingredients except the strawberries and dark chocolate to a food processor. Puree until completely smooth, for several minutes.
- Place mousse in the fridge for at least 60 minutes. If you’re making this recipe ahead of time, it’s OK to leave the mousse in the fridge overnight.
- Using a knife or strawberry huller, carve out the middle of each strawberry.
- Spoon a small amount of the mousse into each strawberry. Place in a shallow rectangular dish. Top with a sprinkling of chopped dark chocolate and enjoy immediately, or keep in the fridge until ready to serve (up to a day).
