Pudding, mousse, or “moose.” Which is it? Whayever you want. It is the texture of pudding when it is served right away. It firms to mousse consistency when it is chilled for a few hours. How much liquid you add factors in too. This recipe is very malleable. The only two constants required are silken tofu and chocolate. Liquid and sweetener choices are yours to make. Kid friendly or upscale? Either. Call it pudding or “moose” and serve it unadorned in simple bowls to please the kids. Heck, they can help make it. Or call it mousse, elevate it in stemmed glassware, and add a fancy garnish. Say, fresh fruit, orange zest, a mint sprig. Now we are talking downtown! Also think Valentine’s Day for your babe. Very easy to make ahead. Tofu? Isn’t that alien goo? No, it is not. Tofu is made from soybeans, possibly grown in soil right here in the Midwest. Be sure to use silken tofu. When it is blended, you will not find anything that feels smoother in your mouth. It comes in several varieties-soft, firm, extra firm, organic, lite. Any kind will work. Add less liquid when using soft tofu, more with extra firm. I use extra firm lite because it has fewer calories, something this 50 something body doesn’t need too many of. Gluten free chocolate? Several brands come to mind. I favor Ghirardelli semi sweet chocolate chips. There are others too. Read the labels, visit the FAQ sections of company websites. And call them if you have further questions.
