Peanut Butter and Banana Choc Chip Tofu Pudding

By Sunday, April 20, 2014 , , , ,

These puddings are incredible filling and satisfying, and yet they are also sweet and decadent and delicious. They make the perfect dessert or mid afternoon snack and they're packed full of goodness too! The psyllium husk is the perfect vegan gelatine, it makes the puddings gooey but also light and airy, plus it's a great source of fibre too!

Makes 2 puddings

You will need:

1 pack (300g) silken tofu
1/4 cup peanut butter
1 very ripe banana
2-3 tbsps agave nectar/maple syrup
1 heaped teaspoon psyllium husk powder
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2-3 tbsps cacao nibs

Simply combine the tofu, banana, peanut butter, agave nectar, psyllium husk and vanilla extract in a food processor and process until smooth. Add the cacao nibs and stir in well, then spoon into 2 small dishes and place in the fridge to set for at least 2 hours. Enjoy chilled with some extra cacao nibs sprinkled on top!

  2. This looks delicious! I've never tried psyllium husk before, does it have a distinct flavour or is it purely for texture?

    1. You cannot taste it in this, it just makes the texture light and fluffy!

    1. The psyllium is needed to make it a gooey pudding texture, otherwise it'll just be mushy tofu!

    2. I'm wondering if you could substitute with some chia seeds or Agar Agar to give it the pudding texture, instead of the husk? Chia seeds would add a different texture, but I've had success with both in making mousse/pudding like desserts. :)

    3. You could just skip the tofu and make a chia pudding then? Chia pudding is tasty too :)

  4. I gave this a go. Didn't have psylliym husk, so used flaxseed meal instead. Worked just fine for making it pudding-y. Might've also been helped along by the fact that I used medium-firm tofu. This was so delicious. What a great way to get a delicious vegan protein hit too.

    2. Quick question: is there a limit on how long these puddings are good for in the fridge? Is 2-3 days too long?

      Delete
    3. I think 2-3 days would be the limit, no longer than that!

    1. You might need to grind up the husk into more of a powder or it will be quite a gritty textured pudding :)
