Healthier Chocolate and Peanut Butter Pudding

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…


  1. This looks great and I love how healthy it is! Very interested to try this with tofu!

    1. The silken tofu is a very versatile ingredient Kat, lots of dessert uses.

  2. I've never thought of using tofu in this way. Simple, tasty and not too naughty - that's a fine combination of virtues.

    1. Agreed Phil. My healthy streak is coming to an end soon!
