Peanut Butter Pudding

If you think healthy and dessert are two words that don’t go together, think again. This recipe combines both in a delicious, creamy pudding by merging two healthy and decadent favorites together. Dark chocolate, cocoa powder and natural peanut butter keep the saturated fat low and the antioxidants high. Bananas add their natural sweetness and the tofu provides plant-based protein to help keep you feeling fuller and more satisfied than you would after eating a typical high sugar dessert. See for yourself how amazing the world of healthy chocolate and peanut butter can be!
