Recipe by Lynne the Pirate Queen
This delicious pairing of chocolate and berries comes from the World's Healthiest Foods site. The silken tofu gives the chocolate a creamy texture without using heavy cream, making this a heathful alternative to most dessert recipes. NOTE: Cook time includes prep for the pudding and the berries; Prep time is the time to chill the prepared pudding. ALSO, if you use frozen berries, thaw and drain well before adding. You may want to save the juice from the thawed berries, and drizzle it over the top for extra flavor and nutrition.

Simple to put together. I used frozen fruit. I really enjoyed this. I have been looking for more ways to use tofu and the berries are healthy as well. Made for Comfort Cafe Jan. 2010
- 1 1⁄2 cups blueberries (blackberries are good, too)
- 1 1⁄2 cups raspberries
- 5 ounces dark chocolate, organic if possible
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 1⁄4 cup water
- 6 ounces firm silken tofu
Directions See How It's Made
- Melt chocolate and sugar in a double boiler over medium heat.
- Place tofu, water and melted chocolate in a blender and blend until smooth. Remove to a bowl. Chill for one hour.
- Place chocolate pudding in a bowl and top with a generous amount of berries (OR you can reverse this, and put the berries on the bottom and top them with a dollop of pudding -- it's really just a matter of preference). Serve and enjoy!
