Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup sugar OR 1/3 cup agave nectar or honey
  • 1 # low fat silken tofu
  • 8 oz high-quality bittersweet or semisweet chocolate melted
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. chili powder or more to taste
  • Chocolate shavings optional

Instructions

  1. If using the sugar combine it in a small pot with 3/4 cup water; bring to a boil and cook until sugar is dissolved, stirring occasionally. Cool slightly. Skip this step if you are using the agave nectar or honey.
  2. Put the chocolate in a glass or plastic microwave-safe bowl. Cook for 1 minute on high power, then remove the bowl and stir the chocolate until it is completely melted. It may be necessary to return the bowl to the microwave and cook for an additional 15 to 30 seconds at a time to help speed the melting.
  3. Put the tofu, sweetener, vanilla, spices, and melted chocolate into a blender and purée until completely smooth, stopping machine to scrape down its sides if necessary. Divide among 4 to 6 individual ramekins and chill for at least 30 minutes. If you like, garnish with chocolate shavings before serving.
