Chocolate Mousse

Prep/Total Time: 10 minutes
Yield: 4 servings

12 oz silken tofu, drained
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/8 tsp almond extract
1 c semisweet chocolate chips, melted
1/2 cup fat-free Greek-style yogurt

Place tofu and vanilla and almond extracts into a food processor or blender and blend until smooth. Add chocolate and blend 1 minute. Scrape sides with a spatula and blend another minute or until chocolate is incorporated. Pour into a bowl. Fold in yogurt until just blended. Refrigerate until serving.

Tips and Tricks
I'm not fond of tofu, so this recipe was an attempt for me to leave my food comfort zone. It didn't taste bad, but I'm still not a fan of tofu. In place of Greek yogurt, I drained the extra liquid from plain yogurt and used that. Vanilla yogurt probably would have been the better choice.
Make It Healthier
Use chocolate chips free of trans-fats.
How Kids Can Help
Measure ingredients, push buttons on blender, stir in yogurt.
