So did you make a resolution to eat better this year? to cut the sweets out of your diet? That just doesn’t work for me. Life is too short to deprive myself of all things sweet. So here’s an alternative. Make a dessert that is more of a meal, with low sugar and protein, this dessert will leave your sweet tooth satisfied and your appetite satiated!
This is tofu pudding, yes tofu. Mori-Nu makes a great tofu pudding mix. All you do is place tofu in a blender with a little water and blend it until it’s smooth. Then add the pudding packet and continue to blend. I like to add a little Kahlua or Frangelico too! Scrape down the sides and blend until well combined.
Spoon the pudding into dessert cups and refrigerate. To add a little decadence I like to add fresh berries and nuts to mine. You don’t have to give up desserts this year. In fact you can skip lunch all together and just have dessert!
You can accomplish the same thing with your own sugar and cocoa combination added to the tofu, melted chocolate works too. But until you get the hang of it, go easy on yourself, start with the packet.
Until next time… Release YOUR Bon Vivant and Savor Your Life!
