Dairy Free Chocolate Pudding

I saw a recipe for a chocolate pudding using tofu and I was very skeptical. As I was looking at other similar recipes, one particular brand of tofu kept popping up… Mori-Nu Silken Firm Tofu.  The reason for this is the very smooth texture. I tried the same recipe a while back with a generic grocery store brand, it was not nearly as smooth.  The Mori-Nu turned out surprisingly great! I used the Ninja Blender (large container) to mix this all together. The melted chocolate and coconut oil give it enough stability when it is chilled to avoid being runny.  I hope you all enjoy it!

Dairy Free Chocolate Pudding

Ingredients

75g Mori-Nu Silken Firm Tofu (this exact brand is listed in the ketocalc)

10g coconut oil

14g canola oil

8g Bakers Chocolate, unsweetened

10g Walden Farm’s Chocolate Syrup (optional, but will be lighter in color and less intense flavor)

3g Truvia (optional as well, calculate any sweetener you are used to using. Chocolate liquid stevia would work well)

Few drops of vanilla extract, optional

Directions

Melt the chocolate squares with the coconut oil and canola oil in the microwave. Stir until all the chocolate has melted.

Put all of the ingredients, including the melted chocolate & oil into a blender or small food processor. Blend until you no longer see any white lumps of tofu.

Divide into portions and store in an air tight container in the refrigerator.

    Hi my husband is having to start this diet due to seizures and I’m just wondering if he can have sugar….thanks so much

      No, sugar is not typically on the diet. It is a 100% pure form of glucose and will help to keep you out of ketosis. Please advise a keto dietitian that can make sure you husband is following the diet properly. A map of keto centers can be found at the Charlie Foundation.
