Recipe: GFDF Chocolate Peanut Butter Pudding

The only kind of homemade pudding I have ever made wasn’t truly “homemade”.  It involved opening a box of Jell-O pudding powder and cooking it in a pan with milk.  It wasn’t the instant version, but it wasn’t homemade either.  When Hannah was sick with the stomach flu twice in December, we needed a way to get some medicine into her and we were avoiding dairy at the time.  A good friend of mine was nice enough to share her recipe for this gluten-free, dairy-free pudding that uses silken tofu as the base.  Here are some of the ingredients the recipe called for.


This recipe really couldn’t be any easier.  It took me less than 15 minutes to put this all together.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Pudding

Blend in food processor:
One 12.3 oz. box extra-firm SILKEN tofu (the recipe called for extra-firm, but I just used 12.3 oz of “silken tofu”)
2 and 1/2 T. water
1/2 c. plus 1 and 1/2 T. unbleached sugar or Sucanat (I used pure granulated, what I had on-hand)
1/2 c. plus 1 and 1/2 T. unsweetened Dutch cocoa (I used Trader Joe’s Cocoa Powder)
1 and 1/4 tsp. vanilla
1/8 tsp. salt


When smooth, add:
scant 1/2 c. natural peanut butter (smooth or crunchy) and blend some more.  (I used Trader Joe’s creamy peanut butter with sea salt.)

Pour into dishes and serve.  Makes roughly 4 – 6 servings.

Hannah came up with the wonderful idea of adding a couple of fresh raspberries on top, so we put our pudding in a pretty glass and chowed down!


This pudding was out of this world!  I would absolutely make this again and I have a great idea for the next batch – instead of adding the 2 TBSP of water, I was thinking about adding Chambord (raspberry liquor).  Of course that would make it an adult dessert and not okay for those under 21 to enjoy.

    Yum, those look and sound delicious! I think I am going to try this. I have not seen the peanut butter with sea salt, I am going to have to go to Trader Joe’s later today and look for it!

    By the way, i also think we have the same wine glasses 😉

    This is right up your dairy-free alley! 🙂 Hope you like it!

    We only have 2 of these left! I have broken many of them over the years – we got them when we got married.


  3. Anne Steib says:

    Yes, my husband keeps breaking them too. We are down to 4!

    I went to Trader Joe’s the other night and picked up some of this peanut butter, but then when I got home, and after spreading it on bread, I noticed the label said it may contain traces of wheat. I was so bummed, so I gave the bread to my husband. I will usually eat things even when they said they are made on the same lines, and are careful about cleaning, etc…. but when it says may contain traces, I usually won’t test it.

    Has it been fine for you?

    That is really disappointing, because I have never seen this on any other containers of peanut butter from Trader Joe’s. This must be made by a different manufacturer. But since they usually are good at labeling labeling items that they are made on the same lines, but they are careful about cleaning, and this one clearly doesn’t, it makes me weary.
