American Seventh-day Adventists have learned to use plant foods like tofu to reinvent classic comfort-food dishes like chocolate mousse pie in a healthier way. This four-ingredient recipe doesn’t require any bak- ing, and it’s fantastic enough for special occasions. This will charm even the biggest chocolate mousse lover; your guests won’t know it’s dairy-free unless you tell them!

12 ounces silken tofu, drained, patted dry
1⁄2 cup vanilla almond milk
Ready-made graham cracker pie crust
