Are you looking to impress a loved one this Valentine’s Day, or maybe you’re simply needing to satisfy a sweet craving without going off the deep end? I’ve got just the recipe for you! This Vegan Chocolate Tofu Pudding is made with minimal ingredients, packed with protein and is the perfect healthy treat that takes about five minutes to make!
I’m not going to lie. Tofu used to kind of scare the crap out of me. I don’t know about you, but when I traditionally think of tofu, I think of rubbery blocks that don’t have a lot of taste, and it seemed like such a foreign food to experiment with in the kitchen.
But I’ve come to realize that’s not the case! There are many ways to use tofu that tastes delicious, such as in a tofu scramble for breakfast, lasagna for dinner, and yes, even pudding for a healthy, sweet treat.
The Nutritional Dish on this Chocolate Tofu Pudding
Did you know that soy is one of the most common GMO foods in the United States? This, my friends, is why it’s important to go the organic route when buying soy products to guarantee that you are getting the natural (good-for-you) stuff.
Tofu is an excellent low-carb, high-protein food, and is also a great source of calcium and iron. In one cup of tofu, you are getting about 16 grams of protein! Maybe we should call this chocolate tofu pudding a post-workout snack instead?
This recipe for vegan chocolate pudding couldn’t be any easier to make and is husband-approved. While I was testing out the recipe, I gave him a spoonful and asked if he knew what it was made of. He had NO IDEA but asked for a whole bowl of it!
So, get your food processors out and ready to go because that’s all you’re going to need to make this easy peasy chocolate pudding. This recipe might also work in a high-speed blender, however, I haven’t tried it so I can’t say for sure. The end result is a velvety, rich chocolate pudding that you won’t be able to get enough of. Trust me on this one…
