Tofu Chocolate Pudding

I'm back!  Has it really been over a year?  I can now say I am a breast cancer survivor and doing great.  I thank Heavenly Father every day that I have more time on this earth with my family.  More time to love, more time to serve and more time to put recipes on my blog :-)

I'll start with one of my favorite new recipes that my friend, Cindi, shared with me, Tofu Chocolate Pudding.  Yes, tofu!  I hate tofu! But I love this pudding and it's pretty healthy--full of protein.  You do need a VitaMix Blender to make it, but it is worth it. You would never believe it is made with tofu.  Delicious!  When you try it, you won't like it--you'll love it!

Tofu Chocolate Pudding

14 oz. soft tofu, rinsed and drained  (I used firm tofu.  Do not use extra firm.)

2/3 cup chocolate chips

½ Tablespoon vanilla
1 ½ teaspoon stevia  (If using packets, about 4 packets)

1 teaspoon cocoa

Place ingredients in a Vitamix Blender in the order written above.  Turn on low and blend on high until smooth and creamy.  The chocolate chips will melt as the mixture gets hot.
