I got a reminder from Krissa a while back about the tofu pudding tutorial I mentioned a few weeks, ok maybe months, ago. Well, here it is! The main thing I use tofu for is blending it into things. It gives puddings and smoothies and really good thick texture. It doesn’t have a ton of taste so it kind of takes on the flavors of things it is mixed with. Today I am going to teach you how to make tofu pudding. :-)
The flavor for today is Chocolate Banana Pudding. Be creative with mix in’s here and create whatever flavor you feel like! Warning: I tried chocolate strawberry and it tasted like barf. So don’t be creative and create that one. You won’t like it, I promise.
Start by blending a whole banana and one 3 oz serving of firm tofu. I started the blending in my Blendtec but I wasn’t making a big enough serving for it to mix well so I transferred it to my Magic Bullet. If you don’t have a Magic Bullet that blends single servings in small cups you may have to make a few pudding servings at once for your blender to blend this well.
Once this is mixed well add your flavorings. I added 1 T. cocoa and some stevia and mixed well again.
Of course, it needs some toppings. I added peanut butter and a few chocolate chips.
