What is vegan chocolate tofu pudding?
As the name goes, a vegan chocolate tofu pudding is a pudding made from cocoa powder (dairy-free) and tofu that can be whipped up in a matter of minutes and is delicious at the same time. Tofu is a soy based product which means that the texture is really good for dishes like puddings.
One primary thing to be considered for this recipe is the use of Silken tofu and not the usual widely available packaged tofu. Silken tofu is a variety of tofu that has not undergone the process of pressing and draining. Which means it is unpressed and undrained. This means that this tofu has higher water content which imparts a creamy and soft texture to the tofu. Because of the creamy texture, silken tofu is better suited for desserts such as puddings.
Is tofu keto?
It surely is! In fact, it’s a wonderfully versatile ingredient to have on the keto diet. It’s has roughly 2g of net carbs per 1/2 cup serve (which is quite a bit of tofu), plus it has heaps of protein and a healthy dose of healthy fats 🙂
Things needed for this vegan tofu pudding?
This chocolate tofu pudding might be the easiest dessert recipe you ever make. It just takes 5 minutes and a blender and voila, you are done. Even the primary ingredients are just 4 in number.
- Silken Tofu: This creamy tofu is the primary ingredient. Creamy in texture, this tofu elevates the pudding to the next level.
- Unsweetened Cocoa Powder: This is the chocolate bit of the pudding.
- Almond milk: This is important to blend them all together.
- Erythritol powder: This is a sweet replacement for sugar that eliminates the calories in this
Ideally, you want a food processor to create the nice even texture, but a decent blender will do the trick too.
How well does this pudding keep?
Chocolate Tofu Puddings usually keep pretty well. Once frozen, these puddings can last for 3 months. The best way to preserve them would be to make a big batch and separate into multiple freezer friendly containers. Just thaw one container when you are in the mood while the other portions of the pudding can stay frozen for the next time.
