So, I am just realizing today that this delightful Silken Tofu Chocolate Pudding is my first EVER dessert post on my blog. I guess its just further proof that I am not really a dessert person. Not that I don't love a delicious treat every now and again, but making them at home is something somewhat foreign to me.
My kids on the other hand, LOVE desserts, as most kids do. They are always begging me for treats, and asking when the next holiday is coming so they can anticipate getting more candy. I wanted to see if there was any chance at all that I could get them to eat a dessert that was both delicious and [somewhat] healthy.
They [ages 3 and 5] tried the pudding, and on the first few bites said how much they loved it. But, I will admit that a few bites in they were done with it. My daughter did ask to take some in her lunchbox and seemed to eat more on the second go-around. Lucky for my husband and I, were were more than willing to lap up the leftovers!
A quick note about the cocoa powder...when I made the first batch of this pudding, I used a standard baking cocoa powder. Since then, I have experimented with dark chocolate cocoa powder, which adds even more richness to the flavor. So, it's really up to your taste preference!
Silken Tofu Chocolate Pudding
- 24 ounces Silken Tofu (preferably Non-GMO)

Add all of the ingredients to the bowl of a food processor and process until it turns into a very smooth consistency. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours before serving.
Hope you enjoy!!
