If your dessert repertoire needs a little shaking up, try these delicious tofu dessert recipes.
They’re sweet, filled with protein, and definitely a step outside the dessert box.
Tofu is no longer just for savory dishes! From mousses to cakes to ice creams, this round-up proves tofu’s versatility.
Tofu is made by coagulating soy milk and pressing the solids into a block.
It’s essentially fermented bean curd, like cheese curds but dairy-free.
While that might sound unappetizing to some, tofu actually has a lovely flavor.
Tofu is slightly sweet, salty, and mildly nutty. Its taste is quite neutral, so it works well with other flavors.
That’s why it’s so darn good in desserts! Well, that, and its creamy texture. If you want a silky and luxurious vegan dessert, look no further than tofu.
Here are 20 of my favorite tofu dessert recipes to get you started.
1. Silken Tofu Chocolate Mousse
Hear me out. Tofu mousse is the best way to make a mousse.
It’s silky smooth, deliciously chocolatey, and full of protein. Plus, you only need three ingredients and it’s super easy to make.
There’s no blooming gelatin, whipping cream, careful folding, or waiting for it to set.
Simply blend everything together in a food processor. Then, you can eat it right away!
It just takes 5 minutes, and you’re done. Letting this mousse sit in the fridge for half an hour makes it even better.
2. Quick and Easy Vegan Chocolate Tofu Pudding
Skip the Snack Pack pudding and try this one instead. It’s creamy, sweet, and chocolatey, just like the lunch box favorite.

4. Vegan Lemon Tofu Cheesecake
If citrus is your jam, then try this vegan lemon tofu cheesecake. It’s bright, tart, and super yummy! And since it’s vegan, everyone can enjoy it.

The crust is sweet, crunchy, and caramelized while the filling is light, airy, and lemon-flavored. It’s delicious.
Is it pudding or is it a drink? That might be up for debate but regardless, it’s sweet, creamy, and fantastic!

Do you know that joke about carrot cake being healthy because it has carrots? Well, this tofu version might make dad’s joke ring true, to an extent.
Don’t get me wrong, this carrot cake still has plenty of sugar. But the rest of the ingredients aren’t too bad for you.
It’s mostly applesauce, tofu, carrots, and flour.
The result is a delicious, moist, and protein-filled carrot cake. It’s also about half the calories of a typical slice of carrot cake.
