Okay peanut butter lovers, this one's for you! No chocolate taking over here. This vegan peanut butter pudding is not one to forget. Just pure peanut butter bliss in a dish that is perfectly sweetened with a hint of salt.
And people love this pudding. I've been making it for years now. In fact, it has been requested several times at events I've catered as one of the deserts of choice. Which is fantastic because it's so easy to make. I mean it doesn't get much better than that.
A crowd pleasing recipe that is easy to make is a cook's dream when it comes to events. Heck, even for your family for that matter. It's not like you always have time to whip up a cake.
So this peanut butter pudding is a perfect solution to a quick and easy, but absolutely delicious dessert.
You only need 5 ingredients to make this recipe! And you probably already have most of them on hand.
- Silken tofu- Firm tofu will not work for this recipe. You can find silken tofu at stores like Whole Foods.
- Peanut Butter- Use all natural salted peanut butter. Peanut butter with added sugar will be much too sweet.
- Maple Syrup- I prefer the taste of maple in this recipe, but you can use agave if you prefer.
- Vanilla- The vanilla adds an added touch to help develop the flavors.
- Sea Salt- In the right amount salt makes the dessert. The salt takes the peanut butter pudding from just okay to amazing by highlighting the peanut butter.
How To Make Peanut Butter Pudding
This pudding could not be more simple to make. It requires no cooking or difficult steps.
To make, all you have to do is add all the ingredients except the salt into the bowl of a food processor and blend until fully combined. Then taste the pudding and add salt as needed.
I added about ¼ teaspoon of salt to enhance the peanut butter flavor, but how much you add will be dependent on how salty the peanut butter that you used was and your prefered taste. The idea is for the salt to further develop the peanut butter flavor without overpowering it. So add just a little at a time. The salt should take your pudding from just okay to amazing!
Once you have your pudding flavors right where you want them, pour the pudding into serving dishes. Now, place the dishes into the fridge to chill for at least 20 minutes. A tad longer is better to allow the pudding to fully set, but 20 minutes will do.
To serve, top the peanut butter pudding with your choice of coconut whipped cream, ground peanuts, chocolate shavings or all three!
How to Store
The peanut butter pudding will keep in the fridge for up to a week. This makes it the perfect make ahead dessert for a dinner or event. All you have to do is pull it out of the fridge, add your preferred toppings, and you are ready to go.
