Guilt-free chocolate cream with silken tofu

I just love it when I find a recipe that is both tasty AND healthy! Silken tofu is a soft form of tofu and can be found in health shops or in the allergy/health section in your supermarket if they stock it. I had heard about it a while ago to use as a substitute for eggs in a chocolate mousse but never actually tried it. Then, my friend Maiwenn from La main á la pate recently published a chocolate cream recipe using this unusual ingredient and I suddenly remembered that I had bought a carton of silken tofu a while back but never used it. This was thus the perfect occasion to try it although I wasn’t sure if I would like the taste of silken tofu. Well, it adds a slight tang to the chocolate cream but it is not at all unpleasant and you mostly get the taste of chocolate. It’s also a doodle to make and since it’s a guilt-free dessert, it’s got my thumbs up!
