Vegan Tofu Berry Mousse Pudding10
It just doesn’t get much easier than this delicious vegan mousse. This berry tofu pudding can be prepared in less than 10 minutes (and that includes getting the ingredients out of your fridge), and is absolutely delicious. I got this fantastic vegan mousse recipe from my friend Alison about 10 years ago, and my snout has paid homage to her fabulous tofu berry pudding trough countless times since. This refreshing vegan mousse makes a fantastic, quick last-minute dessert; simple healthy after school snack; or guilt-free vegan sweet treat on a hot Summer’s day. Either way it is Soy Berry Good!
You can make this vegan mousse even quicker and easier by just blending in frozen berries and serving immediately. But I find that reducing the berries into a syrup gives this tofu pudding a bit more of a punch, and creates a deeper, richer berry flavour that then requires less sweetener. I am a bit more heavy handed with the lemon juice than I have indicated in the recipe, as I am a bit of a tart! Blend and taste, and you will find the balance that works for you.
You could substitute any berries you like for this recipe. I have made a phenomenal sweet cherry version, as well as a mango mash that was madness. But I always return to my beloved raspberries. What can I say -- they have been berry good to me! If you are have soy allergies, fresh young Thai coconut meat and coconut water works really well as a substitute for this tofu pudding. If you are looking for yummy allergy free recipes and vegan dessert recipes, this tofu mousse is a winner. It is gluten free, dairy free, egg free, nut free and refined sugar free. Best of all, for you Vitamix loveres, it is one of the best Vitamix recipes out there! YUMMO!

Piggy Cooking Tips
the best way to clean your blender
After blending up something sticky, gooey or smelly, just place a few drops of soap in the carriage with some warm water and blend on high until all of the congealed food slips away from the blades and sides. Then repeat this process. Then rinse with water and presto! Clean carriage.
If you have smells or stains repeat this process with some bicarbonate of soda or lemon juice and water.
