My family & I enjoy this recipe for dessert a lot! It’s so quick & simple to make & is a nice light dessert that is a little decadent too! Enjoy!
2 pkgs. of silken tofu
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup real maple syrup
1 TBSP vanilla extract
chocolate mint or regular fresh mint (for topping)
sliced strawberries (one or two for topping)
dark chocolate bar (for shavings on top)
*Optional: reserved aquafaba (whipped topping made from chickpea liquid – Look for this recipe here on this site! 🙂
- In a blender, mix together all of the ingredients, except for aquafaba, mint, strawberries & dark chocolate, until all smooth.
- Pour into pretty glasses or dessert cups.
- Top with a dollop of aquafaba, then strawberries, followed by chocolate shavings & a couple of leaves of mint. (Make sure to rinse mint before)
I grow chocolate mint & spearmint in my garden. I highly recommend it! A word of warning: they grow aggressively, spread & may even pop up in another part of your garden all of a sudden, but it is so fragrant when you brush the leaves & I use them quite often in recipes. They do help aid in indigestion & are a breath freshener as well! They’re inexpensive to grow & they’re perennial!!
