1package12 oz MoriNu style tofu (firm)
1cupmashed bananaabout 3 bananas
3-4tablespoonswhite sugarto taste
1banana sliced - optional
To your blender add tofu, mashed banana, coconut oil, salt and vanilla. Blend on high speed until smooth. Scrape down sides and blend again. (I use a Blendtec and used the dips and sauces setting here). Add sugar and blend again, tasting for sweetness. How much sugar you need to add will depend on the ripeness of your bananas. Really ripe bananas work nice here.
To make layers, fill 4-5 small single serving containers with about half of the mixture. If using, layer slices of banana on top of this layer and set aside.
With the remaining mixture in the blender, add chocolate chips and cocoa. Because I am using a high speed blender I don't need to melt my chocolate first. It will blend right in. If you are using a regular blender it would be helpful to soften the chocolate slightly, I don't think you will need to fully melt it, and you don't want it hot. Blend until smooth and creamy, scraping sides of blender as needed.
Add chocolate layer on top of banana layer in seving dishes and place in the refrigerator to chill for at least 30 minutes. Serve with remaining sliced bananas.
