Chocolate Pudding Thickshake (Dairy Free and Delicious! )

Vegan Chocolate Pudding Thickshake


This shake ticks three of my favourite boxes: vegan, chocolate and creamy.

Drinking tofu may sound like some kinda craziness, but our beloved ‘fu falls into the background of this shake, providing a creamy, thick backdrop for all of the smooth chocolate-y sweetness.

Never underestimate the power of stealth tofu: it’s in there, nourishing you, but you can’t detect any trace of the Dreaded Beaniness. Soft (or silken; same thing) tofu is an awesome base for creamy condiments, drinks and desserts.

Soft tofu can be a little harder to find than firm. You might find the boxed vacpack variety on the shelves, or a refrigerated tray next to the fresh noodles or veggie meat alternatives in your local supermarket. Wellington-wise, I have bought the former from Countdown Newtown, and the latter from Chaffers New World.

This makes a great, indulgent-feeling breakfast on the go or quick snack. It is so satisfyingly creamy and thick, a mini meal in a glass.

Heartily approved by two skeptical omnivores!

  1. Yep, this is going to have to become part of my life. I’ve done kale in smoothies, dates in smoothies – now I’m ready for the delicious siren song of tofu. Thanks for the recipe!
