I submitted this recipe and am glad to hear that others are enjoying it. I have two tips. I find that using a frozen banana imparts a more intense banana flavor. Plus it chills the pudding instantly so you can eat it sooner :) Also, add a tsp of vanilla if you use regular cow's milk.
Neither my husband or I was fond of this (though to be fair he's not a tofu fan like I am) but our toddler really seemed to like it with extra banana as a dessert. The problem was not the tofu because I couldn't tell that it had tofu in it at all. It just wasn't rich enough for my taste. Perhaps someone who is more used to vegan recipes would enjoy it more. I think I might prefer this recipe if it was made with dutch processed cocoa or even melted chocolate chips.
Oh my gosh, I am in love with this. It feels absolutely DECADENT. I used firm tofu because that's all I had on hand, but it worked just fine. Amazing recipe!
I think all the right flavors are in there and the tofu gives body to the pudding but since tofu doesn't have much taste the overall flavor is very subtle. Couldn't really taste the banana either so I would say either use a very ripe banana or throw in an extra. Think it'd taste better served with something else, like fruit. Will try playing around with the proportions next time but all in all, great way to use up extra tofu!
This is delicious! Very creamy and smooth; better texture than regular pudding imo. Not too sweet; the chocolate and banana flavors are really highlighted. Served with additional sliced banana and sprinkle of cinnamon. Also got five stars from omni hubby and picky 9 and 12 year olds. Thanks for the post!
YAY for healthy pudding!!!! I used extra firm tofu because I wanted the pudding to be more firm. It set great like a pie filling. I used 7-8 SweetNLow packets instead of confectioners' sugar to make it as low-cal as possible. Don't leave out the cinnamon it adds the perfect flavor. Next time I will not put in as much Cocoa powder. I mixed in 1 cp chopped bananas, blueberries and strawberries and it was AMAZING!!
Simple. Easy. Delicious. It is Vegetarian Festival here in Thailand during the period 15-23 Oct 12. I shared this dish with some friends at the office. They would not believe it's made of tofu. Thank you for this wonderful recipe. Even when it's not Vegetarian Festival here, I will surely make this again and again!
My husband accidentally got some soft tofu, so I was in search of some new recipes. I tried making this pudding this morning. I used frozen banana and milk with some vanilla, but, otherwise, I stayed with the recipe. It thickened up really well. I served it to my 2 & 4 year old's at lunch with some blueberries and a dollop of whipped cream. They loved it. It does have just a little bit of a powdery aftertaste. I think this comes from having so much confectioner's sugar and cocoa powder. I will definitely keep this one and play with the proportions. I think I might try some simple syrup instead of the powdered sugar. I might also try some melted dark chocolate to replace some of the cocoa powder. But, this is an awesome base recipe to jump all over from.
