Dear Cancer Project supporter,

When consumed in moderation, this is a healthier version of the high-fat, high-calorie French delicacy. Chocolate contains the phenolic compounds gallic acid and epicatechin, which are important antioxidants for cancer prevention. Cornell researchers have found that cocoa has nearly twice the antioxidants of red wine and up to three times those found in green tea. 


Directions

Makes 10 servings

1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup non-dairy milk
2 12.3-ounce packages low-fat silken tofu
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 ready-made graham cracker crust (optional)
10 strawberries, chopped
10 mint sprigs for garnish

Place chocolate chips and non-dairy milk in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave for 1 minute. Let sit for 2 minutes.

Place tofu, vanilla, and chocolate chip/non-dairy milk mixture in a food processor or blender and process until smooth. Transfer into a graham cracker crust, if using, or small individual serving dishes and chill for 2 hours in the refrigerator or 30 minutes in the freezer. Serve topped with strawberries and garnished with mint.

Variation: Add a chopped banana to the blender or food processor when you process the tofu and chocolate together.
