Chocolate Tofu Filled Strawberries
Why dip in chocolate when you can fill the whole dang berry? That delicious chocolatey filling is only 5 little ingredients, keeps your ticker strong (this is American Heart Health Month!) and doesn't pack on the calories like that other stuff. Eat. It. All. And, happy Valentine's Day! xoxo
- 1 block of silken firm tofu
- 2 tablespoons maple syrup
- 2 -3 tablespoons cocoa powder
- 1 tablespoon creamy almond butter
- small pinch of salt
- 1 pint of organic strawberries
Make the chocolate:
In a blender, mix all the other ingredients until smooth and taste. Adjust to your palate. Allow to chill for one hour. Transfer the chocolate mix to either a plastic baggie, a pastry bag or a condiment container with a very small opening. If using a baggie, let as much air escape as you can and cut a small corner off.
Prepare the strawberries:
Using a very small melon baller or a round teaspoon, gently scoop out the top of a strawberry. Next, cut off the very bottom of the strawberry so that it sits upright.
Squeeze the chocolate into the strawberries and either eat immediately or chill in fridge until ready.
