I have been craving chocolate like you wouldn’t believe. After browsing the internet for recipes that are Whole Living Action Plan acceptable, I decided to come up with my own.
Now I know that caffeine is a no-no during the Whole Living challenge, but just a little from the chocolate won’t hurt, right?
Ok, good. I’m glad we’re on the same page.
This pudding is vegan, gluten-free, and sugar-free! Enjoy!
Chocolate Protein Pudding
- 1 lb. firm tofu
- 1/2 cup cocoa powder
- 4 Tbsp. sugar free vanilla syrup (I used Torani brand) OR 4 Tbsp. agave nectar
- 3 Tbsp. unsweetened almond milk
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- Place all ingredients into a blender or food processor and blend until smooth.
- Serve right away, or if you can wait (I couldn’t) chill for 30 minutes. Makes 2 large or 4 small servings.
This pudding calmed my sweet tooth without the guilt. I contemplated just giving up and making a batch of brownies, but I’m happy I didn’t because now I have a recipe to turn to when I need a quick, healthy chocolate fix.
Just before diving in to the pudding, I topped it with a few dry roasted peanuts for crunch and a peanut buttery chocolate flavor.
It’s almost dinner time and I have another pound of tofu in the fridge that’s fast approaching it’s expiration date. Looks like I’m doubling up on the soy tonight!
Question: “What’s your favorite way to use tofu?” I’m always looking for non-Asian inspired tofu recipes. I got kinda burnt out on tofu stir-frys during college…
