Amazing!!! Healthy and delicious! Perfect dessert for a little ones.

My go-to recipe whenever I crave something chocolaty. :) Done it multiple times, in the original version, as well as playing with ingredients and proportions. Like to swap almond butter for hazelnut, and maple syrup for date syrup. And I always-always thin it with black coffee (usually a leftover from morning) for a lighter consistency and enhanced flavour.

Mmm sounds lovely, Oksana! Thanks for sharing your experience with the chocolate pudding 😃

Danielle Leonard - April 10, 2024, 1:35 a.m.

I will definitely make the is again!!🤤

Michelle - Feb. 29, 2024, 9:10 p.m.

This is delicious. I DID have to add my milk substitute (I use pea protein milk) to get pudding consistency, but it might be the best pudding I’ve ever had. Between the milk and tofu, it’s certainly the highest protein pudding I’ve had.

The firmness of this recipe (unaltered) lends itself more to being the filling of a flourless cake.

Isabella Sulieman - Feb. 16, 2024, 5:41 p.m.

This is incredibly delicious! Also without the fruits 😜. Definitely will make it again...and again...and....again.

PUL Team - Feb. 18, 2024, 2:55 a.m.

Woohoo! Happy cooking, Isabella 🤗

Sam - Dec. 28, 2023, 11:35 p.m.

YUM! Served with a handful of raspberries and a spoonful of So Good vanilla ice cream for a special dessert treat. Delicious!

Amy - Sept. 25, 2023, 1:44 a.m.

Hi, Sadia and team! I love trying out your recipes! I tried the silken tofu chocolate pudding and the taste is really good, but the consistency is much thicker than pudding. In fact, it could almost be used as a very thick frosting substitute, lol. I'm not very skilled in the kitchen, so I'm assuming the error is mine and am wondering if you could give me some ideas as to what I might have done wrong. Would not melting the chocolate enough cause this?

PUL Team - Sept. 25, 2023, 3:31 a.m.

Hello Amy, this pudding is actually quite thick! To make it smoother, you can leave it at room temperature before serving to let it soften 🤗

Amy - Sept. 25, 2023, 8:54 p.m.

Oh, thanks for letting me know! I thought I had done something wrong, lol. It was very tasty!

Megan Wynd - Sept. 9, 2023, 2:28 a.m.

SO GOOD!!!! Love that it’s super thick. Tastes decadent

Martunia - Aug. 31, 2023, 9:06 a.m.

I liked the consistency and taste of the pudding right after I was done blending it, but when it hardened in the fridge I felt the chocolate flavor became a tat bit too strong. As someone else said in of the comments below, just a tiny portion will satisfy you and make you full. I had it with loads of different berries to freshen my taste buds and the combo is a must here, I would say.

Nancy - Aug. 8, 2023, 6:32 p.m.

This dessert created a lot of discussion around the dinner table. I mistakenly referred to it as a mousse, not a pudding. I didn't mention the tofu but my kids were suspicious. Everyone gave me the thumbs up and I thought I was in the clear. Even though bowls were wiped clean, I had to field a couple of complaints. One complained it was a little too dry (I added a shot of chocolate sauce), and another one thought the texture should be more creamy. Whatever. My suggestion is to serve a smaller amount than you think you need. It is very filling and that way, there's more for later. I would like a suggestion to make it creamier, just because it would be more malleable to get it into the bowl. Warning, it is a very addictive dessert.

PUL Team - Aug. 10, 2023, 5:42 p.m.

Hey there, Nancy, aw we're so happy that the pudding was enjoyed and sparked a lively discussion! If you're looking to make it even creamier, you could add a bit more silken tofu, blend the mixture for longer, or add a small amount of plant-milk 😊

Izzi - June 24, 2023, 11:36 p.m.

It is thick indeed! More like a pie filling than a pudding, which I actually think I'll try next time. But so completely rich and delcious.

Katie - May 31, 2023, 8:09 p.m.

Delicious and easy indeed!!

Brigitta - May 31, 2023, 4:41 p.m.

This is gorgeous, and I love how the recipe is presented on the website.... So nice and smart.... Thank you for this great recipe, ✌️😍

PUL Team - May 31, 2023, 5:19 p.m.

Thank you so much, Brigitta! 🤗

Cathy - Jan. 17, 2023, 3:31 a.m.

This is extremely delicious!! Couldn't stop snacking on this with some pita chips. Thank you for this recipe!

Gini - Nov. 29, 2022, 10:20 p.m.

Thanks for sharing all such lovely and easy recipes. Even thought I'm not vegan I love trying out your recipes. Can you share a substitute for Tofu in this recipe (if it's possible of course)?

PUL Team - Nov. 29, 2022, 10:42 p.m.

Hey Gini, thanks for sharing the kind words! We haven't personally tested out something else, so we can't say for sure what might work with success. Perhaps this recipe is an idea to try instead:… 😊

Amy - Sept. 25, 2022, 2:49 p.m.

I made this tonight and it did not disappoint! Mine turned out a bit more "dense mousse-like" than pudding, but I did use the whole of my container of tofu and bag of chocolate chips (otherwise I would have had a small amount of each leftover), and did add a big splash of plant milk as suggested. It firmed up when chilled, but OH! It made it so decadent with a dollop of coconut whipped topping & raspberries! Working on becoming more plant based, and PUL makes it a delicious undertaking! Thank you!

PUL Team - Sept. 25, 2022, 5:27 p.m.

Aw thanks a bunch for taking the time to share, Amy, and we're so grateful PUL is able to be part of your plant-based journey! We hope you find it a rewarding transition 🌱

Keira - Sept. 14, 2022, 3:32 p.m.

Only told my BF it contained tofu after he tried it... he was positively surprised :D it tastes delicious! I also spread some on toast this morning, it was a decadent breakfast hehe. Thank you PUL!

PUL Team - Sept. 15, 2022, 7:27 p.m.

Hehe sneaky! So glad it was enjoyed, Keira, spreading it on toast sounds lovely 😍

Astrid - July 1, 2022, 6 p.m.

Made this pudding today! It was really delicious :) But after reading the comments below I am going to try it next time with a splash of plant milk to make it a little less dens. Or make a crumble cooky bottom and on top this mouth watering pudding! Thank you PUL team for again another great recipe!!

PUL Team - July 1, 2022, 8:44 p.m.

Mmm lovely ideas, Astrid! Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with it 🌻

Ana - June 28, 2022, 12:42 p.m.

This dessert is delicious! Just wondering if there is a way to obtain a lighter consistency, as the texture is slightly too thick to our taste. I was thinking to reduce the amount of chocolate, but worrying that it might affect the flavour as well. Any recommendations?

PUL Team - June 28, 2022, 3:50 p.m.

Hey there, Ana, thanks for the kind words and question! You could opt to add a touch less of the chocolate or tofu. Alternatively, you could also thin it out with a splash of unsweetened plant milk, such as almond or coconut 🙂

Eriko - March 13, 2022, 3:59 p.m.

I just made this with my kids and we all loved it❤️❤️Your recipes are all amazing, your recipes brings so much joy in our kitchen❤️My new hobby is trying your recipes!

PUL Team - March 14, 2022, 2:02 a.m.

Aw it means so much, Eriko! Sending an abundance of love and gratitude to you and your family 💚

Karin - Dec. 11, 2021, 8:13 p.m.

Hi, I am from a country where maple syrup isn't a thing. I would only buy and use it for this one recipe, so I wanted to ask if the aroma is necessary or if I could substitute it with anything. Would the taste be significantly worse if I substituted it? Thanks in advance :)

PUL Team - Dec. 12, 2021, 10:25 p.m.

Hi there, Karin, that's a lovely question. The maple syrup helps give the mousse a delicious sweetness with a touch of stickiness. You could substitute it for another more accessible syrup if desired for a similar end result. Alternatively, you could experiment with omitting the syrup and adding sugar to taste, although we haven't had a chance to test this out recently. Do let us know how it goes if you give the recipe a try 😃

Karin - Dec. 27, 2021, 2:32 p.m.

Thank you!
I tried it with brown sugar, agave syrup and maple syrup and all three turned out great. The mousse was less stiff when I used brown sugar, but I made this quite often now and I found out that you can just add water if you want a more liquid consistency. It was the first plant-based dessert my family tried and they were convinced :)

PUL Team - Dec. 27, 2021, 10:43 p.m.

Thank you for the insight, Karin, it's so appreciated! Glad the dessert was enjoyed 🙂

Chrissi - July 24, 2021, 8:56 p.m.

Hi Sadia,

this mousse is SOOOO good!
I've already made it a few times and it's become one of my go to recipes if I need a vegan dessert.
So thank you so much for making it much easier becoming vegan with your recipes <3

PUL Team - July 26, 2021, 8:08 p.m.

Hey there, Chrissi, thank YOU for being here! We're so grateful PUL has been part of your vegan journey 💖

Ellie - July 11, 2021, 12:12 a.m.

One thing I crave when vegan is creamy chocolate sweets. This hits the mark for me. Yummo

Elisa - June 21, 2021, 12:48 a.m.

OMG! This mousse is something else…it’s the best mousse au chocolat which I've ever eaten! And not only in vegan, compared to any (dairy) mousse as well! I bought the Magimix 5200 from your recommendations and I believe your recipe AND the food processor are the winning team for this perfect outcome … because of the food processor the texture becomes so unbelievably creamy and smooth!
I used a mix of dark chocolate and vegan rice milk chocolate and cashew butter instead of the almond butter. I adore this ! Thanks so much!

PUL Team - June 21, 2021, 6:56 a.m.

We're so thrilled you've been enjoying the food processor and recipes, Elisa! Thank you for sharing :D

Brin G. - June 1, 2021, 1:14 a.m.

Just made this and it's SO. GOOD.
