Steps

Step 1: Making and Assembling the Parfaits

• 2 cups fresh raspberries
• 3 tbsp pure maple syrup
• 1 (12-ounce) package firm silken tofu
• 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
• 1 (12-ounce) package firm silken tofu
• 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
• ¼ cup pure maple syrup
• ½ tsp pure vanilla extract
• ¼ tsp sea salt
• ½ cup fresh raspberries, for garnish

Method

To make the raspberry cream.
In a small saucepan, combine the raspberries and maple syrup. Cook over medium-low heat until the raspberries start to break down, about 5-8 minutes. Transfer the mixture to a blender. Add the tofu and lemon juice and blend until smooth and creamy. Transfer to a bowl, cover, and refrigerate the mixture until completely cool.

To make the chocolate cream.
Place the tofu, cocoa, maple syrup, vanilla, and salt in a blender. Puree until smooth and creamy.

To assemble the parfaits, fill 6 (6-ounce) parfait cups halfway with the chocolate cream and the remainder of parfait with the raspberry cream.

Chill for 1 hour before serving. The chocolate and raspberry layers can be made separately 1 day ahead and then assembled to serve.

Just before serving, garnish each parfait with a few fresh raspberries.

    What is a good substitute for Tofu in this recipe?

    Hi Debi: thanks for writing. You could try a non soy-based yogurt. It would work the same way. Hope this has answered your question. Cheers, Char

    I just tried these. I think my were very liquid. Maybe the silklen tofus in my country are more soft. Can agar falkes (sea vegetable gelling agent) be used to thicken it slightly? is agar flakes considered WFPB?

    Hi Paola, I suggest you drain your silken tofu, I have started to do that myself. Set a strainer over a bowl, and put the tofu into the strainer. Refrigerate for a few hours. You will likely see liquid in the bowl. (Use it in smoothies.,) Agar can set the mousse. Agar is a sea vegetable and certainly wfpb. I think if you drain the tofu, though, you will not need any agar. Enjoy! Fran
