Recipe - Coffee Tofu Pudding Pie

I've enjoyed tofu desserts over the years but have always wondered how easy or hard they were to make. I got my hands on some tasty, workable soft tofu the other day and decided I would give it a shot. Now, this recipe involves using crust that is already made but you can easily form and bake your own too for a better flavor. I took advantage of how well tofu absorbs other flavors when pureed and mixed it with coffee for a coffee pudding pie. This is a no-bake pie and is extremely easy to make.

Step 1: Ingredients (yields 9" pie)

  • 14 oz soft/silken tofu (I used Wildwood's Onederful)
  • 1/4 cup pure cane sugar
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 4 tsps ground coffee
  • 2 Tbsps coffee liqueur
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 9" graham pie crust

Step 2: Making the pie
I'd add a final step if there was one but you honestly just blend all of the ingredients together until it is smooth. Pour the pudding into a pie crust and let stand in the fridge for 3-4 hours until it hardens. Enjoy!
