Chocolate Chili Pepper Mousse

What you need: 

1 (12 ounce) packet organic firm silken tofu
1/3 cup cocoa (I use Green and Black’s Organic Fairtrade Cocoa)
1/3 to 1/2 cup agave nectar
2 teaspoons natural vanilla extract
2 tablespoons raw peanut butter or raw almond butter
1/4 teaspoon chilli pepper flakes
fresh raspberries, to serve
vegan whipped cream, to serve
crushed raw almonds, to serve

What you do: 

1. Throw all ingredients in your blender and puree until smooth and well combined.
2. You might have to stop and scrape the sides of your blender to make sure it is all mixed through.
3. Spoon mixture into martini glasses or serving bowls, and chill in the fridge for a couple of hours to yield the best results. The mixture will thicken slightly and the flavor of the chili will strengthen. However, I have scarfed this after half an hour and been more than satisfied.
4. Serve with fresh raspberries, a dollop of vegan cream, and some crushed raw almonds.

SO HOW'D IT GO?

Thanks for the input everyone.  :)
You can use tahini instead. The nut butter is just to boost the flavour and the texture.
You can also put in some sunflower or pumpkin seeds or just leave it out all together.
Yes - I also make raw vegan mousses using avocado as the base and they are delicious as well.  :)

OTHER RECIPES FOR MOUSSE USE AVOCADO FOR BINDING, TEXTURE AND FAT.  THIS MIGHT WORK.

Sunbutter would be a good almond/peanut butter replacement.

To omit the nuts simply don't put it in.  The peanut butter is used mainly for the texture I would think.  It would also dilute the chocolate perhaps.  It will be a tad richer chocolate without it unless you trickle in some soymilk or you might be able to add a small amount of vegan whipped cream to get the same texture.  Cashews just don't use them.  I usually don't.  DO make sure you use  silken firm not waterpacked.

I bet you could top it w/ sunflower seeds. I would toss a couple handfuls in my food processor for a few seconds, then sprinkle them on top before serving. HTH
