Low Carb Chocolate Pudding Snacks

When starting a low carb diet, it’s a good idea to have healthy snacks available to satisfy any cravings. Chocolate is a big weakness of mine so I’m always on the lookout for quick and easy recipes involving chocolate. I stumbled upon an article about tofu and different uses for it. Since tofu is made from soy, it isn’t surprising that it can be used to make pudding and ice cream. I usually avoid soy products because of the controversial studies showing possible harmful side effects from eating too much. However, because soy is so low in carbs, I haven’t been avoiding it completely.

The lite silken tofu that I bought listed less than 1g carb per 3 ounce serving. Out of all the tofu packages, the lite was the one with the lowest carb count. There is a significant amount of protein in tofu so it’s a snack that will really fill you up. If you want to make up a quick batch of chocolate pudding, the soft silken tofu has a consistency of pudding when mixed in a blender or food processor. All it needs is a little flavoring and sweetener to make a healthy low carb pudding snack.

    I have never had tofu but I am going to have to give it a try w/this recipe. The carb count is a lot less then the prepackaged choco pudding.

    I recognize those little bowls! Got some of them myself and they’re so handy.

    I stay away from soy due to thyroid issues, but your pudding looks really good!

      These are the Pampered Chef 1-cup Prep Bowls. I use them all the time to bring small snacks like yogurt and pudding to work since they come with covers. I stay away from plastic food containers. With all the glass storage containers, my lunch bag must weigh at least 10 pounds.
