Tofu Dream Pie or Chocolate pudding

2 pkgs Mori-Nu Silken Tofu-firm (light or regular)
3/4 cup Honey
3 tsp Vanilla
1/2 cup Cocoa Powder

In a food processor whip tofu until smooth. Heat honey 90 seconds in microwave on medium high. Pour
honey over cocoa powder-stir until smooth. Add vanilla. Add chocolate mixture to tofu and continue
blending for one minute. Pour into pre-made pie shell or custard cups and chill for 1 to 2 hours. Garnish
with banana slices if desired.

Tofu Pumpkin Pie

1 1/2 pkgs. Mori-Nu Lite or regular Tofu, extra firm
2 cups canned pumpkin
2/3 cup honey
1 tsp. vanilla

1 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
3/4 tsp. ground ginger
1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/8 tsp. ground cloves
1 unbaked 9" pie crust

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Blend tofu in food processor or blender until smooth. Add remaining ingredients and blend well. Pour into a 9" pie crust. Bake for approximately 1 hour. Filling will be soft, but will firm up as the pie chills. Chill and serve.

I've never heard of or seen tofu cream cheese so don't know if it's vegan or not.

8 oz. tofu cream cheese
