17 Day Diet-Mexican Chocolate Pudding

17 Day Diet Mexican Chocolate Pudding

This "spicy" pudding is made with high-protein, super nutritious tofu. If you think you don't like tofu - get over it! Tofu actually takes on whatever flavor is paired with it - including chocolate - yum!

  • Food processor


  • 12.3 oz package of silken extra-firm tofu
  • 5 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3 tbsp sugar-free chocolate flavored syrup
  • 2 tsp Truvia or Stevia
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper optional


  • Please all the ingredients in a large food processor.
  • Cover and process until smooth, about 1 minute, scraping down the inside of the bowl at least once.
  • Divide into four ramekins or small bowls.
  • You can serve immediately or chill for 30 minutes - depending on the temperature you prefer.


  • Add more/less of the cayenne pepper based on your preference
  • Make sure you use cocoa powder, NOT hot cocoa mix.
  • It's important to use silken extra-firm tofu.  A popular brand is Mori-Nu and they sell it in shelf-stable packages so no refrigeration is needed.
  • This is a very thick pudding, so please use a food processor, a blender will not be able to mix this pudding.
