Here's a rich-tasting dessert that can be eaten the minute it’s done. Serve it with sliced apples, pears, and/or Asian pears on the side. The pudding can be used as a dip for the fruits as well.
- One 16-ounce tub silken tofu
- ⅓ cup peanut, cashew, or almond butter
- ⅓ cup maple syrup or agave nectar
- 3 tablespoons vegan caramel syrup
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon butterscotch extract, optional
- Cinnamon for topping
Combine all the ingredients except the cinnamon in a food processor. Process until velvety smooth.
Taste, and step up any of the flavors you might like more of—the nut butter, sweetener, or extracts.
Transfer to a serving container, or divide among individual serving bowls. Top each serving with a sprinkling of cinnamon.
