The vegan whipped rice cream has a creamy texture and a natural sweetness (vegan cream is not always healthy. Avoid using it if it contains palm oil or similar fats). I usually prepare these vegan chocolate and tofu cups with dates syrup. Unrefined sugars give a much more delicate flavor and are always preferable to refined sweeteners. If you are not used to only slightly sweet flavors, you can use raw brown sugar as proposed in this recipe.
These cups are very easy to prepare and can be kept in the fridge for 3-4 days. Perfect as a dessert for the milder season, they are also very nutritious, given the presence of tofu for which they could also be an ideal snack for children.
Who does not love tofu, can choose the non-vegan version with fresh ricotta and replace the rice milk with a good cow’s milk.
