This will Knock Your Gym Socks Off!
As a child, I grew up eating tofu in stir fry dinners. Tofu is a great source of protein, is low in fat and carbohydrates. I love making this special healthy dessert recipe that uses silken tofu Hope you enjoy it as much as my family and I do!
Healthy dessert recipe using 70 % dark cocoa and tofu. Dark chocolate is loaded with anti oxidants and tofu is high in protein. This is a delicious dessert that is creamy like chocolate mousse. I serve it to my kids and they have no idea it’s made with tofu!
- 1 16 oz. package silken tofu
- 1/3 cup cocoa powder (look for 70% dark chocolate cocoa)
- 1/4 cup stevia extract (or if you’re naughty 1/2 cup sugar)
- 1 tbsp. vanilla extract
- 1 mashed banana
- 1/2 dark chocolate bar
Add tofu, cocoa powder, stevia, vanilla, and banana in a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth. Transfer pudding to a bowl, cover, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving.
Divide pudding into beautiful, footed dessert glasses and top with grated or shaved dark chocolate. Yum! No guilt and so decadent.
