Vegan Chocolate (or Carob) Mousse Dream Pie with Dessert Pie Crust

(Mori-Nu Tofu ad)

Pie Crust

Preheat oven to 350° F.

Place cereal in a blender or food processor and grind to fine crumbs (but NOT to cereal-dust), about 2 minutes. Transfer to a mixing bowl and mix in the maple syrup and almond extract. Mix well until crumbs are moistened.

Pour into oiled 9-inch pie pan and press mixture in evenly to form a crust. Bake 5 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool while preparing filling of your choice.

Tofu-Chocolate (Carob) Mousse

Since this recipes comes from a Mori-Nu ad, they'd like you to use 2 packages of their Mori-Nu Lite Silken Tofu, Firm. Whatever you use, try to get the freshest tofu available. Silken tofu will give you the smoothest texture.

Bruce, our sysadmin, says that if you add a few tablespoons of coconut milk to the mix before you blenderize it, it makes it even creamy-fluffy "moussier".

Whip tofu in a blender or food processor until smooth. Warm the Fruitsource or honey to break down its viscosity, i.e. get it runny. The recipe says to pour the Fruitsource/honey over the chocolate (carob) powder and stir until smooth, then add the vanilla, THEN add this chocolatey paste to the tofu in the blender/food processor. I just throw everything straight into the food processor - you mess up less dishes that way. Blend until everything is nicely mixed in. Adjust the sweetness and other flavors to taste.

Pour into pre-made pie-crust or custard cups (or into mugs and serve like pudding). Chill for 1-2 hours before serving.
