Welcome! I just joined this group as well. I have always loved baking, and last fall I took a cake decorating class at Michaels, which was NOT good for my hips! Homemade cake with fresh buttercream? Deadly.
One of my favorite desserts that isn't too bad is from Tosa Reno's Eat Clean Cookbook. It's a mousse/pudding and I've modified it a little. If you use less chocolate and less milk, it will be thicker. Original recipe calls for 1/2c. milk, 3/4cup dark chocolate chips.
This recipe as written came out smooth like a pudding.
12 oz Silken Tofu Firm, drained (Must be silken for texture)
3/4 c. Almond/Skim/Soy milk
2 tsp. Vanilla
10 oz. White Chocolate Chips/Chocolate Bar (I mixed one Ghirardelli bar and about half a bag of nestle white chips)
Melt chocolate in a double boiler. While the chocolate is melting, combine tofu, vanilla and milk in a food processor. Process until smooth. Add melted chocolate and process until blended. Strain mixture through a sieve using a spatula if needed to get most of the mixture through. Chill for 2 hours.
I've made it three different ways, with dark chocolate chips and mint chips during the holidays, dark chocolate chips, and white chocolate chips. All 3 have been fantastic!
