This recipe is for all of you peanut butter nutter’s out there! It’s a delicious peanut butter and chocolate flavoured pudding. It’s quite healthy too – with no sugar and the fat comes from reduced-fat pb, so it’s not too bad if you are trying to cut back.
The main ingredient is actually silken tofu. I got this in my local Chinese supermarket. It’s thinner than the usual firm type but still packed with protein and minerals. It’s texture lends itself well to desserts.
The recipe, I had actually made before was from the Food Network magazine, but I decided to change it up a little. The original was only peanut butter flavour and had icing sugar in it to sweeten things up.
I decide to add cocoa powder to the recipe and sweeten it with granulated sweetener instead.
It’s delicious and very simple to make.
Yield: 4 portions
350 grams silken tofu
125 grams reduced-fat smooth peanut butter
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
Granulated Sweetener, to taste (I used Truvia)
Chocolate Shavings as garnish (optional)
Adapted from Food Network
In a bowl with a mixer beat together the tofu, peanut butter and cocoa powder for 2 minutes, until smooth. Taste it to see how sweet you like it. I added two teaspoons of sweetener, but you might prefer more, or less.
Pour the mouse into 4 serving dishes and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. Sprinkle on some chocolate shavings as a garnish, if you wish, and you have a very peanut buttery, chocolaty dessert to devour.
Nice and simple and on the healthier side too. Enjoy…
