Tofu Tuesday! Chocolate Pudding!

IMG_3111

It’s ‘Tofu Tuesday’ again and today I have a yummy recipe for you all. I blended this pudding together as an experiment after seeing lots of different tofu pudding recipes. I had a rumage through my pantry for ingredients and my ‘Chocolate Bananarama Pud’ was born!

Chocolate Bananarama Pud

Serves two

  • 300g Silken Tofu
  • 1 ripe Banana
  • Tsp Raw Cacao powder (you can use coco or cool melted chocolate if you don’t have Raw Cacao)
  • Tsp Agave syrup
  • 2 squares of Vegan Chocolate

1. Blend all ingredients (except the vegan chocolate) until smooth.
2. Pour equal amounts into two dishes.
3. Grate chocolate with a fine grater and sprinkle on top.
4. Refrigerate for a minimum of an hour.

I really want to experiment with toppings with this pudding! Fresh raspberries or strawberries with mint would be delicious!

I hope you enjoy my recipe, please feel free to comment below.

Vegan Treats! Week One!

photo-6

Hello all! I want to apologise for not posting anything yesterday. I had one of those days and I had to sort a few things out. I am back and ready to start posting again!

So, today is all about treats! I thought I would share my first attempt at making biscuits.  I think I was inspired by ‘The Great British Bake off’ this week, I know Paul and Mary would have a few things to say about my odd little biscuits.
I bought some brown rice flour last week and I was really looking forward to experimenting with it. I have always been gluten and lactose free so I am used to baking without, but I have always used an all purposes flour mix.
I used a recipe from Sweet Alternative by Ariana Bundy, which was a gift from my mum a few years ago. I decided to make a plain biscuit, which is always a good way to test combinations and experiment with various flavours.
I followed the basic recipe and added some lemon rind to give my biscuit a citrus kick as they were a little bland. The recipe was extremely easy to follow,  however, they had an odd aftertaste. I was the only one that noticed so maybe it’s just my palette. I’m going to carry on playing with flour combinations using this basic biscuit recipe, so I can find a recipe that I can enjoy with a cuppa.
Thanks for reading, please feel free to comment below. I will be back tomorrow! It’s Film Friday!
