Looking for a healthy treat to feed your Valentine?  Try these Chocolate Mousse Strawberries.  If you are not a fan of tofu, I would substitute sugar-free, fat-free chocolate pudding.

INGREDIENTS

1/2 container silken tofu (1/2 pound)
1/4 cup chickpeas, rinsed and drained
5 pitted dates
1/8 cup cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
40 large strawberries, washed and dried
1/4 bar dark chocolate, chopped

DIRECTIONS

  1. Add all the ingredients except the strawberries and dark chocolate to a food processor. Puree until completely smooth, for several minutes.
  2. Place mousse in the fridge for at least 60 minutes. If you’re making this recipe ahead of time, it’s OK to leave the mousse in the fridge overnight.
  3. Using a knife or strawberry huller, carve out the middle of each strawberry.
  4. Spoon a small amount of the mousse into each strawberry. Place in a shallow rectangular dish. Top with a sprinkling of chopped dark chocolate and enjoy immediately, or keep in the fridge until ready to serve (up to a day).
