dessert and dessert
- 5 Medjool dates softened in a few tablespoons of hot water
- 500g silken tofu (I like the Japanese kind, less of a ‘soy’ flavour if you get me)
- 1/4t salt
- 1/2t lemon juice
- 10 drops vanilla stevia liquid (or an additional 4 dates with 1/2t vanilla extract instead… it’s what I use for Misty)
- 5-6t cacao powder (however strong you like it)
Blend everything together.
Recipes to follow for the toppings that are pictured. Sorry to be a tease. You’ll forgive me.
I have used this ‘pudding’ in heaps of different ways – But wait! There’s more! It’s awesome as the soaking ‘agent,’ for overnight oats (in place of yoghurt, milk etc) or for a chia seed pudding. I’ve also made a peanut butter and banana version, and an almond butter and jam. All definitely worthy of a YUMMO. I’m thinking it would be wicked knickers on top of pancakes too. Just saying.
The biggest plus is that Misty loves the stuff; I can make a big batch, and we can both happily munch our way through. It would be awesome for all those little gummy monsters out there that don’t yet have the equipment for chowing down on the hard stuff.
So that’s about it. What do you think? Dessert for breakfast? Breakfast for dinner? Or simply dessert for dessert? Whatever floats your boat, that’s what I say.
