Chocolate PB & Banana Pudding

If your mornings are more storm than calm, this make-ahead chocolatey pudding is your answer to a nutritious start to the day even when in a time crunch. Silky soft tofu provides body to the pudding as well as satiating plant-based protein, but its neutral flavour allows all the peanut butter and banana essence to shine through in each spoonful. And you should know that this pudding is also a smart post-workout snack to help your body recharge.


1/3 cup (80 mL) unsweetened dairy-free milk of choice

1 – 10 oz (300 g) package silken soft tofu

1/3 cup (80 mL) peanut butter powder

1 ripe banana

2 Tbsp (30 mL) cacao powder

2 Tbsp (30 mL) maple syrup

1 tsp (5 mL) vanilla extract

6 Tbsp (90 mL) chia seeds

2 Tbsp (30 ml) cacao nibs


In blender container, place milk, tofu, peanut butter powder, banana, cacao powder, maple syrup, and vanilla, and blend until smooth. Divide mixture between 2 wide-mouth jars and stir 3 Tbsp (45 mL) chia seeds into each jar. Seal shut and chill overnight to thicken.

When ready to serve, sprinkle on cacao nibs.



You can swap out crunchy cacao nibs for grated dark chocolate or top your breakfast pudding off with your favourite granola and a handful of berries.


Power powder

Made from whole roasted nuts that have been pressed to remove most of the oil and then ground into a fine powder, peanut butter powder is a stealth addition and a boost of lower calorie nutty flavour in puddings, smoothies, pancakes, muffins, and your breakfast oatmeal. Ideally, use versions with no added sugars.

Each serving contains: 355 calories; 18 g protein; 18 g total fat (5 g sat. fat, 0 g trans fat); 42 g total carbohydrates (15 g sugars, 17 g fibre); 90 mg sodium
