Ingredients And Substitutions

These are the main ingredients and substitutions for Chocolate Tofu Pudding. Scroll down to the recipe card for a full list of ingredients and instructions.

For this recipe I used silken tofu which is soft tofu, I used level two which provides a smooth and creamy finish. I have seen other recipes where firm tofu is used, and the end result is more like a mousse, so both will work!

To keep this recipe vegan, use a vegan dark chocolate. Otherwise, you can use any type of chocolate such as milk. It’s recommended to use one that is sweet rather than bitter.

Coconut oil is used to melt the chocolate to create a smooth and creamy texture.

Maple syrup sweetens this recipe up along with the chocolate chips that are used. However, agave, honey or date syrup will work too.

A touch of salt helps to balance out all the flavors.

Vanilla bean paste is my favorite to use in recipes, but vanilla extract works just as good!

Cacao powder will give this pudding that deep and rich chocolate flavor. You may also substitute for coco powder.

I like to top these off with dairy free cool whip, but you can skip this or use whipped cream in replace.

How To Make

ONE: Start by melting the chocolate in the microwave in 30 second increments with the coconut oil, stirring well in between each round until fully melted.

TWO: Next, in a blender or food processor add in all the ingredients including the melted chocolate and blend until smooth and creamy.

THREE: Pour into containers and top with whipped cream and chocolate shavings and enjoy!

Tips And Tricks

Use a blender, food processor and immersion blender to combine all the ingredients. You will not get the same result if you mash by hand.

Use silken tofu for a more pudding like texture and firm tofu if you want a more mousse like texture.

Make sure you use a sweet chocolate rather than bitter, this will give the best flavor to this recipe.

How To Serve And Store

Serve this Chocolate Tofu Pudding once chilled and enjoy with a dollop of cool whip or dairy free whipped cream. I like to add on some chocolate shavings as well!

Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator and enjoy up to 6 days.

Taste And Texture

Chocolate Tofu Pudding taste like snack pack chocolate pudding but it’s made with much healthier ingredients. You absolutely cannot taste the tofu at all, it’s well masked by the rest of the ingredients.

Each bite is filled with a rich, deep chocolate taste.

The texture is thick, smooth, and creamy.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can you taste the tofu in this?

Nope! If you follow this recipe exactly as written then I promise you will not be able to taste the tofu!

What kind of tofu is best for this recipe?

I prefer to use a silken tofu, aka soft which provides a more pudding like texture that is soft and creamy. You can however use firm tofu for a more thick, mousse or ice cream like texture. It really just depends on preference.

What can I use instead of tofu?

That’s the main ingredient in this recipe, so I wouldn’t recommend swapping it out. You can however use my Avocado Pudding recipe for a different alternative!
