Ingredients

FOR THE RASPBERRY CREAM:
  • 2 cups fresh raspberries
  • 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1 (12-ounce) package firm silken tofu
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
FOR THE CHOCOLATE CREAM:
  • 1 (12-ounce) package firm silken tofu
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup
  • ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
GARNISH:
  • ½ cup fresh raspberries, for garnish

Instructions

  1. To make the raspberry cream, combine the raspberries and maple syrup in a small saucepan. Cook over medium-low heat until the raspberries start to break down, about 10 minutes.
  2. 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.
  3. To make the chocolate cream, place the tofu, cocoa, maple syrup, vanilla, and salt in a blender. Purée until smooth and creamy.
  4. To serve, fill six (6-ounce) parfait cups halfway with the chocolate cream. Fill the ramekins the remainder of the way with the raspberry cream.
  5. Chill for 1 hour before serving. The chocolate and raspberry layers can be made separately 1 day ahead and then assembled to serve.
  6. Just before serving, garnish each ramekin with a few of the fresh raspberries.
