How To Make Vegan Chocolate Pudding

Whether you’re vegan or not, one bite of this recipe and you should know that it covers all your delicious dessert requirements. By using tofu as a base, you automatically achieve that thick creamy consistency while also not sacrificing flavor-tofu has a way of absorbing all the flavors around it. Another huge perk of this lovely sweet is that it’s naturally sweetened with maple syrup and maple crystals. You won’t find any refined sugar here! And then the combination of the instant coffee and the pure cocoa powder brings the richness of chocolate and the small bite of coffee to round out all the flavors. In the end, you get a rich, creamy, chocolate-y pudding that will have you eating more than one bowl because it’s just that good-and healthy! Did we mention the entire thing can be made in a food processor? Oh yeah, there’s that perk as well.
