"All too often you have many its that you want to pursue, and sometimes they conflict, a tussle right there on the boundary among three great dos: what you can do, what you should do, and what you want to do. When the three sit aligned, you're all right. But usually they fight. It's up to you to bring the dos together. This is where patience, persistence, and productivity reenter." ~Wynton Marsalis

I'm always experimenting and can never leave well enough alone. Here's my latest variation on the chocolate pudding theme.

The same recipe as below, but ... (wait for it)

Add in one can of black beans, well rinsed (or equivalent, if you want to cook your own). You have to have a powerful blender to make this work. Add a bit more sweetener (I use some stevia, I like KAL brand, but too much stevia can ruin it, so go easy) and some more maple syrup/agave, to taste. Remember, you're making about twice as much pudding) and as much more of the other ingredients (vanilla, cinnamon, cocoa powder) as you deem necessary.

Then there's one more thing, just a little bit exotic. I had some Distilled Rose Water (Maward) in my fridge and added a capful or two. This was really quite nice. Something special.

If you're worried about the black beans, I think you'll be surprised -- they blend in perfectly.

For young kids, though, I'd just stick with the basic simple recipe below.

I've been meaning to try this. I also want to try the puddings that are made with avocado in them.

Note: This recipe is also posted on a blog at the Living a Vegan Lifestyle Team.

This recipe comes from Rip Esselstyn's book, the Engine 2 Diet. It's so fast and easy. It will take you longer to lick the spatula when you're done than it does to make the pudding He calls it chocolate mousse, but to me mousse is a little fluffier or something. Either way, it's really good. Tastes just like the kind of pudding you probably had as a kid.

1 package Silken Lite Tofu
2 Tablespoons cocoa powder (unsweetened)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup of maple syrup or agave nectar (I like maple syrup best)

Put this all in a blender and give it a whirl. I gave this recipe to a friend and she tried to whisk it by hand. That doesn't work -- you won't be able to get the lumps out.

I found it a little too sweet for my taste. I added just about 1/4 cup of maple syrup, added another Tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa and some cinnamon. Yum.
