  • 700g silken tofu
  • 160g maple syrup
  • 1tbsp vanilla bean paste / vanilla extract
  • 1 large pinch salt

  3. Add the tofu to a food processor with the maple syrup, vanilla extract, 1 good pinch of sea salt and any extra flavourings, then blitz for 1-2 mins until smooth.
  4. Add the melted chocolate and pulse until silky and combined.
  5. Divide the mixture into little bowls or espresso cups and refrigerate for 15 mins to chill.
  6. Serve with crumbled golden oreo cookies, lime zest, hazelnuts or any other toppings you’d like.
