I’m not going to lie. Tofu used to kind of scare me. I don’t know about you, but when I traditionally think of tofu, I think of rubbery blocks that don’t have a lot of taste, and it seemed like such a foreign food to experiment with in the kitchen.

But I’ve come to realize that’s not the case! There are many ways to use tofu that tastes delicious, such as in a tofu scramble for breakfast, lasagna for dinner, and yes, even pudding for a healthy, sweet treat.

Tofu is an excellent low-carb, high-protein food, and is also a great source of calcium and iron. In one cup of tofu, you are getting about 16 grams of protein! Maybe we should call this chocolate tofu pudding a post-workout snack instead?

  1. It was better than expected, normally I would use melted chocolate for this. But cocoa powder seems to work just as well. But I did add some cinnamon and chili powder to get that tofu flavor out, as that beanie tofu flavor was coming through. But it was good and yahooo low-fat. I tried using less sweetener as I was trying to keep this low cal, but it really needs that extra sweetener that was recommended in the recipe. So I ended up using half agave and then monk sugar. It was mild but tasty, I would make it again.

    1. I’m glad to hear that you enjoyed it! I love how you personalized it with cinnamon and chili powder, plus the twist on sweeteners – yum! I appreciate the positive review 🙂

  2. I would love to make this but I don’t have instant coffee. Can I make with espresso or brewed coffee? How do I adjust the portion to make it not liquidy if I add a bit of brewed coffee or espresso?

    Ps I love that you make this low calorie by using cocoa powder instead of chocolate chips

    1. Hi Alyssa, great question! Yes, I would recommend espresso, since it would be a stronger flavor. I would recommend using 2 tablespoons espresso and reducing the maple syrup by 2 tablespoons to balance out the consistency. Let me know what you think!

  3. This was a very easy recipe. I used vanilla instant coffee so I cut out 1tsp of the vanilla extract. I found it a bit sweet to my liking, so I would cut out the extra 2 tbsps of maple syrup the next time around. Also, as I didn’t have silken tofu, I used medium and added a bit of almond milk to thin it out. It’s a pretty versatile recipe, which I like. I rated it 4 stars because of the sweetness level. It was a bit much, but if you like sweet, then definitely 5 stars!

    1. Hi Kim, I’m glad to hear that you enjoyed the recipe! I love that you used what you had on hand, too. The cacao can be quite bitter, which is why there is extra maple if needed. I agree with you, less is better. Thank you for leaving a review!
