Chocolate Banana Tofu Pudding, a vegan dessert

A tofu dessert, may not sound delicious because of its bland taste. When you add chocolate and aromatic spices, the taste is very different. This is a great dessert to try at least once if you are unsure about trying tofu.

I have never been a fan of tofu. And I don’t believe I will ever be unless other ingredients with bold flavors are added. Tofu is bland and the texture is different depending on the brand and the type. By type, I am referring to soft, firm and extra firm.

A couple of my vegan friends told me that the firmer the tofu the better it is to manage and cook with. So, the past couple of months I have been experimenting. You may have seen my first recipe called Sautéed Rum Honey Glazed-Tofu. If not, make sure you check it out.

I found this dessert recipe online and altered it a bit by adding spices and a little bit of vanilla extract. The extract enhanced the taste of the chocolate and made it taste much better.

The original recipe did not contain any sweetener which I found weird. When you are using cocoa powder you do need to add a sweetener to cut down on the bitterness of the chocolate. I chose to add honey instead of sugar because it dissolves much faster in this dessert.

You may wonder why I am posting or sharing this recipe on a Caribbean food blog. Well, there are several vegan Caribbean people that also use tofu. It is not an ingredient that is only used by a specific segment of part of the world population.

 

 

The world is culturally diverse and the food is as well. So why not add my Caribbean spin to any ingredient I can cook with.

Enjoy this wonderful dessert with fresh fruits.
