Fruit = delicious. Fruit with a low cost, low calorie, low fat, high protein, decadently creamy dark chocolate dip = pinch me, I’m having a dream about fruit dipped in dark chocolate. Wait, is this real? Yes! I have pictures to prove it.
This is another of my joyful soft tofu experiments. Soft tofu is the shiz-nit when you want delectable creaminess and reasonable healthiness happening in the same place, as I often do. And don’t forget, once you’ve transformed it into something delicious, it stops being tofu and starts being soy. When I was shopping at the fanc-eh food co-op in Seattle, I would have totally thought about buying some dark chocolate soy fruit dip, except it would have been $5 for a little container instead of $1.60 so I would have passed.
It is so fun getting creamy chocolate all over strawberries and yumming them up. It adds that little decadent kick of fun I often need to get through the day with a smile on my face. The next time I get to the store, I think I’m going to go tropical and get a pineapple for dipping. Dark chocolate and pineapple…wow! Clearly getting my hands on a pineapple is going to be my number one priority today, and it’s all the fault of this fabulous dip. Curse you, dip! You’re too damned delicious.
