Tofu pudding is a simple yet decadent dessert that can be made in 5 minute or less. This tofu chocolate pudding is made with only 4 ingredients. It’s velvety smooth texture and delicious sweet taste is sure to satisfy any chocolate craving!
I stumbled upon an article about tofu and different uses for it. Since tofu is made from soy, it isn’t surprising that it can be used to make pudding, ice cream, and tofu pudding.
I usually avoid soy products because of the estrogen-like properties. However, because soy is so low in carbs, I haven’t been avoiding it completely.
The lite silken tofu that I bought listed less than 1g carb per 3 ounce serving. Out of all the tofu packages, the lite was the one with the lowest carb count. So I used it to make this easy tofu dessert.
What is silken tofu?
Silken is a type of tofu that’s undrained and unpressed. Therefore, the curds remain unseparated. Because it has the highest water content it’s the smoothest and creamiest type of tofu. This makes it ideal for using in spreads, sauces, puddings, and desserts.
Is tofu keto friendly?
The average serving of tofu has 2 grams of carbs or less. That makes it safe for staying in ketosis. However, many avoid it because eating too much soy can cause hormonal imbalances. And when hormones aren’t in balance it can be difficult to lose weight.
If you’re okay with eating soy occasionally, you’ll love that you can make an instant keto chocolate pudding in less than five minutes. And there's only four simple ingredients in the recipe!
You’ll want to use a good food processor so the following ingredients are well blended into a creamy smooth pudding.
- Silken Tofu
- Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
- Granular Sweetener
- Vanilla Extract
