Yes, this does use silken tofu, no you cannot taste it!
Silken tofu makes the perfect base for sweet puddings, it’s so versatile, high in protein, gluten free and of course plant based.
In this recipe I used a combination of melted dark chocolate and cacao powder, lots of vanilla bean and a natural sweetener.
Toppings are not compulsory but a lovely addition, from fresh berries, a drizzle of dulce de leche, nut butter, fruit compotes, whipped cream, a dollop of yogurt or crème fraiche, nuts and seeds. This is super customisable, a cinch to make a head for parties and just so delicious.
