Tofu Chocolate Pudding Recipe and Free e-book for Kids

Thank you House Foods for sponsoring this post.

You might know her as Bernadette from the Big Bang Theory but this time, Celebrity Melissa Rauch has teamed up with House Foods on a FREE children's e-book called The Tales of Tofu with several kid-friendly tofu recipes to promote a healthy lifestyle and the importance of family mealtime. We tried out the Tofu Chocolate Pudding recipe topped with peanut butter, fresh organic berries, chopped dark chocolate pieces, and sprinkles which made a tasty and protein-packed treat!

The Tales of Tofu is cute story of a shy block of plain, pale tofu who finds confidence and becomes a star in the school play. Using clever rhymes and introducing a handful of tasty tofu recipes this book celebrates this heart-healthy and protein-rich food while reminding children that they can be anything they want to be - just like tofu!

This entertaining book was made in collaboration with House Foods which has been making tofu and promoting healthy eating for over 30 years! They are also a family-friendly company which focuses on sustainability.

A little information on tofu...

Tofu is made from soy. Soy is actually one of the most water efficient protein sources you can find. Soy crops save four million gallons of water for each ton of soy compared to animal proteins like meat and dairy. Soy also boasts more pounds of usable protein per farm acre than any other complete protein food. It takes 10 times the amount of farmland to get the same about of protein from meat!

House Foods tofu is made from 100% US grown soybeans which are Non-GMO verified, gluten-free and kosher certified, cholesterol free and free from unsaturated fats. It is rich in minerals, including calcium and iron and it is inexpensive and easy to prepare. The ways to use tofu are endless with everything from pudding and smoothies, to "bacon" and taco "meat". 

My whole family is a fan of tofu and we eat tofu scramble, tofu stir fry, and baked tofu all the time! We even turn tofu into a cheesy filling for delicious stuffed shells.

We try to teach our kids from an early age about healthy eating. Tofu has been part of their healthy diets pretty much since they could eat solid foods. My little girl was especially intrigued by the Tofu Chocolate Pudding recipe in The Tales of Tofu book. Tofu is usually part of a savory meal in our house and this may have been the first time we used it for something sweet!

The Tofu Chocolate Pudding recipe is pretty easy. It does require some sort of a food processor or blender to get the creamy consistency of pudding and to melt the chocolate you will either need a microwave, double boiler or you can create a double boiler with a stainless steel bowl set on top of a pot of boiling water.

I did most of the prep work, melted the chocolate, and blended the ingredients, but my sweet little sidekick came in with the topping and decoration. All the ingredients and toppings are vegan, so no animals were harmed in the making of this dessert!

You can top these little jars of pudding with pretty much anything you like but we decided to go with a dollup of peanut butter, chopped chocolate bits, fresh juicy organic raspberries and rainbow sprinkles. We decided to take our little treats outside and enjoy them in the garden with the bees and butterflies, where some of our food grows.
