Tofu Chocolate Pudding

You’re gonna have to trust me on this one.  This pudding is really, really good – and really good for you.  Don’t get scared away by the tofu part.  If my midwestern-raised, Miller High Life drinking husband likes this stuff, chances are, you will too.  Even my one year old gobbles it up.  Best part – it only has about 80 calories a serving, and the serving size is half a cup. Oh, and it’s delicious too.  For real.

All you need is three-fourths of a cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips, 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder, one package of silken tofu and some milk.

First, stick your chocolate chips and one-third cup of milk into the microwave for about a minute (or until it’s melted).

Next, put one-third cup of milk in your blender with the box of tofu, the 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder and the melted chocolate.  Just whiz it all together for about 3 minutes until it’s smooth and creamy.  You might have to scrape down the sides once to get all the chocolate in there.

        

Now here’s the hardest part of the whole recipe — don’t eat it.  Put it into a container and stick it in your fridge for 6 or so hours.  Trust me, it’s way better after it cools down and hardens up in the frige for a while.

This stuff is so freaking good, and no one would know it’s made with tofu unless you tell them. It’s packed with protein, super low cal, and it’s vegan and gluten-free as a total bonus.  The real reason to make it, though … because it’s delicious!  Enjoy!
