Strawberry Pudding

For a healthy dessert alternative, this naturally sweet pudding recipe is a tasty treat and has no added sugar. Substituting protein-rich tofu for heavy milks and creams makes this dish much lighter and diet-friendly.

Serves 4

8 oz Frozen strawberries (unsweetened, thawed and drained)
8 oz Firm or extra-firm silken tofu
1 tbsp Orange zest
1/4 cup Agave nectar (optional)
1 tbsp Vanilla extract
4 Fresh strawberries (sliced)

In a food processor, combine all ingredients, except for the sliced strawberries, stopping after 1 minute to scrape the sides of the bowl.

Blend for an additional minute or until the mix is very smooth.

Divide the mix evenly among small bowls, and chill for at least 1 hour.

Garnish with sliced strawberries and serve immediately.
