What surprised me the most was how simple it was to make a rich and creamy pudding by using silken tofu and only a few ingredients!

What is tofu pudding?

This silken tofu pudding recipe resembles a soft, creamy pudding texture that is made from silken tofu as a base instead of the traditional method of using cornstarch and milk.  However, this recipe is not to be mistaken for tofu pudding originating from Taiwan, which is a firm set pudding more similar to that of gelatin.

What kind of tofu do you use to make silken tofu pudding?

I use soft silken tofu that comes in a self stable box. You can find them in most grocery or supermarkets.

What is the difference between silken tofu and regular tofu?

Silken tofu is tofu that has not been pressed or drained, which means it has a higher water content than regular tofu.  Its consistency is extremely soft and therefore, perfect for desserts such as dips, pudding or smoothies.

Is silken tofu low carb friendly?

One package of silken tofu has 4 g carbs and 4 g of fiber making it near 0 net carbs!  It’s is also a good source of protein.  Just to note, there are concerns about too much tofu causing hormonal imbalances, but there are also studies that also show eating in moderation is perfectly fine as well.

What are the health benefits of matcha?

Not only does matcha give you that extra boost you might need during the day but it also contains many health benefits.  These include promoting relaxation, improving sleep, weight loss, and preventing heart disease.

Is it easy to make matcha tofu pudding?

I can’t imagine an easier dessert than this matcha tofu pudding!  Combine Silken Soft Tofu, Matcha Powder, Monkfruit, heavy cream and vanilla extract into a food processor or blender.  Then refrigerate for 30 minutes or more.

You can customize this dessert by adding your favorite berries, nuts or some whipped cream.  The possibilities are endless!
