This pudding required two ingredients. Two. And no cooking! Possibly the easiest dessert ever, and it’s delicious to boot.
K ate a whole bowlful and didn’t even realize it was made with tofu. Not that she has any objection to soy products, but the point is that you would never know. If I hadn’t made it, I wouldn’t know. Except for maybe some of the white chunks that didn’t get thoroughly blended…but no biggie.
I used this recipe and though I wasn’t able to pipe the pudding into my bowl as prettily as I would have liked, the taste more than makes up for it.
The part that blows my mind? It’s low calorie. Aside from the fact that it takes a minute to make with only melted chocolate chips and silken tofu, it’s practically good for you!
I used Trader Joe’s brand of silken tofu so I can’t vouch for the brand that the recipe recommends, and I think next time (and there will definitely be a next time) I want to try it with a darker chocolate. The winning component was to make sure to let the pudding sit for a few hours. I waited overnight for the flavors to absorb into the tofu and it made a difference.
This is the kind of dessert I want to make all the time – and with bathing suit season coming up, it might have to become my go-to chocolate fix!
