Peanut butter tofu pudding
Sadly, tofu is bland, but that’s what makes this dessert delicious. It not only takes on all the flavours around it, but it has a silky texture and is incredibly nutritious.
Made from soybeans, tofu is a good source of protein and low in fat. So much so that you can use it as a low-calorie substitute for meat or fish.
If you’re like me and find that eating a heavy dessert at lunch leaves you dreaming of a nap all afternoon, this recipe is for you. I also wanted to say that while making this dessert, I thought about kids who are at the age where they don’t care about the meal and want NOTHING BUT DESSERT. This mousse is a nutritious option and they’ll beg for more. Please film your kids’ reactions when you tell them it’s made with tofu — I’m dying to see.
One last thing: this recipe also works well for breakfast with some granola or berries.
