rich chocolate peanut butter cream
this makes a great dessert or breakfast that you can serve all at once or keep it throughout the week. consider it a mix between a mousse and a pudding - thick, creamy, and very chocolatey. serve with fresh fruit and/or nuts at the end of a big meal with friends - perfect!
- blend together until smooth and creamy: 1 package firm silken tofu, 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk, 1/4 cup unsweetened chocolate chips, 2 tbsp dutch-processed cocoa powder, 2-3 tbsp sweetened peanut butter, a dash vanilla extract, a small pinch sea salt, and a scant dash of cayenne.(make sure to read labels for milk ingredients when buying cocoa/chocolate chips, as always.)
- chill in the fridge for a couple of hours or overnight.
- serve very cold to four to eight people, or store in your fridge for 1-2 weeks.
