A Chocolate Day

Who doesn't like chocolate? I don't think there are many, although I have met a few who didn't like this yummy, dark treat. It's always nice to have a handy, quick chocolate treat available for those times when a chocolate craving strikes. Easy to make and delicious to eat, there are only two ingredients in this chocolate 'recipe'. And better yet, it's something that anyone in the family can make, not just the usual cook. Together, one box of Mori-Nu extra-firm tofu and one package of Mori-Nu Mates chocolate pudding mix work together with a splash of water and a food processor. If you store the Mori-Nu tofu in the fridge, you won't even have to wait for it to chill. The ingredients in Mori-Nu mates are: dehydrated raw cane juice, Dutch cocoa powder, potato starch, guar gum, non-hydrogenated coconut oil, soy lecithin, and vanilla. Natural and healthy, easy and quick, vegan and gluten-free, and delicious too! Garnish with berries and a cashew cream topping --- or place in a chopped nut crust for a delicious pie. Also, very good as a filling for tiny tarts for teatime! You can never go wrong with chocolate!


  1. I have to admit I love me some chocolate! I'm headed for the Seattle area on Saturday and will be there till the New Year...yikes!

  2. We're always up for chocolate anything! But as I get older, I must admit, I like it in smaller portions. I all for having one small really, really good chocolate truffle that's small and exquisite, rather than a huge box of so-so flavours.

  3. Now there is a great pantry recipe!

    I used to often make a chocolate "cream" pie filling by blending two packages of Mor-Nu and one package of chocolate chips (melted and cooled a bit).

    No one knew the basis was tofu. :)

  4. The chocolate pudding sounds so good. Thanks for sharing a very simple idea for a good dessert.

  5. Hmm, lots of chocolate lovers out there! Yeah! Ellen --- I hope we have a nice winter in the PNW and don't get too much rain. I know you will enjoy being around your family.

    And Brenda --- I agree about the one good quality truffle over a large quantity of something that isn't nearly so good, even if chocolate!

    And Coffee-Tea Brenda --- I never thought of adding melted chocolate chips to the pudding. Oh, that sounds SO good! Thanks for the idea!

    And Clarice, the espresso powder is a great one as well. You are such a creative cook!

    Marilyn --- thanks for commenting. I hope you are all rested and revived from your adventures in France!


  6. I'm a chocoholic too- if I keep chocolate handy in case of a craving strike, it will all disappear! Sometimes I try to recover...I have never tried this Mori-Nu. Maybe it's the answer.
