Easy Vegan Instant Pudding Mix Recipe with Almond Milk and Tofu
Instant pudding mix is a quick and easy way to make a yummy dessert without much effort. However, it's no secret that almond milk does not work with instant pudding mix. You'll wind up with pudding soup.
Some people have solved this problem by using less almond milk than the package directions indicate. While this may work, you kinda get cheated out of your full amount of pudding.
Another solution, that I have found to the instant pudding plant milk conundrum is to use tofu.
I've found that half tofu and half almond milk works very well.
The package normally calls for 2 cups milk. Instead use 1 cup almond milk and 1/2 a package drained firm or extra firm tofu.
Just use a food processor to buzz everything up.
I also use sugar free instant pudding mix, but that is just personal choice.
You could use silken tofu, if you can find it. That would probably work nicely with a lesser amount of almond milk. However, I haven't tried it, so I can't say for sure.
Depending on your location, the silken variety may be hard to find.
Now, while I normally try to make my photos look fancy, I was a little stumped as to how to make a cup of pudding look elegant.
I did my best to create a cute little french rocher. It's fun to do!
Regardless, I can say with certainty, it's a delicious treat. Instant pudding can absolutely be vegan if you follow these steps.
Give it a try. It's wonderful and super easy.
