I am a little bit hesitant to post this recipe because it’s not really an ideal food creation in my mind. What do I mean by that? Well, it’s a low-calorie, low-fat dessert that’s very voluminous. But why is that bad, you ask? Because (to me) it’s reminiscent of a frankenfood, and I think we should all be eating normal stuff.
So why did I make it?
I used to be a big fan of the lite ice cream fad. Well, I had been ever since I discovered calories (!). I don’t remember when that was… sometime early on in college I believe. Unfortunately those ice creams still have lots of sugar and if I have too much, I break out. And anyway, I’d prefer a McD’s cone over fake ice cream any day. But one day I was home and didn’t feel like running out for a cone, and didn’t want a sugary dessert, so I made this. And it was pretty good! A decent amount of protein and volume but not much else.
De-Lite-Ful Tofu Pudding AKA Vegan and No Sugar Tasti Delite!
- 1 package light silken tofu
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon NuNaturals vanilla stevia drops (one dropperful)
- 1/2 teaspoon NuNaturals cocoa bean extract (one dropperful)
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice (optional)
- sesame seeds for topping (optional)
Blend all ingredients except sesame seeds in a (mini) food processor. Adjust extras to taste. Top with sesame seeds if you so desire!

Have you ever made tofu pudding? Do you like tofu?
I’m not a huge tofu person, but I eat it occasionally. I much prefer fatty cuts of meat.
P.S. I made that bowl the pudding is in!
