Delicious Chocolate Mousse Dip (Dairy-Free)

Using tofu to make chocolate mousse, pudding or dip couldn't be easier and the results couldn't be tastier...really!  If you have a loved one who insists they don't like tofu, please make them this recipe and be amazed.

Not only is the recipe completely decadent and full of chocolate goodness, it is high in protein and fiber too!

I was a skeptic, but now that I've tasted the delicious creation, I almost always have a box of this on hand:

Note:  be sure to use *silken* tofu, regular or firm tofu will not work.

Delicious Chocolate Mousse Dip (Dairy-Free)

1/2 cup dark or semi-sweet chocolate chips
12 oz container silken tofu
1/3 cup cocoa powder
2 teaspoons vanilla extra
1/4 cup agave nectar, sugar or other sweetener

In a microwave safe dish, melt the chocolate chips by cooking on HIGH in 30 second increments.  After each increment, stir the chocolate, repeating until it is smooth.

In a food processor, combine the melted chips, tofu, cocoa powder and vanilla:

Process until smooth, then add the agave or other sugar and process until the mixture is smooth:

Chill for 30 minutes (if you can wait--one time when I made a batch, it was room temperature because none of us wanted to wait!).

Serve with fresh strawberries for dipping:

Or pretzels:

Or eat a bit out of a bowl, with extra chips for good measure:

 Life is sweet!
