This simple recipe was inspired by my favorite fall/winter drinks – Old Fashioned’s and Manhattan’s. I’m pretty much a fan of most cocktails with bourbon or whiskey in them! This vegan dessert isn’t too sweet. The cinnamon, bourbon, and vanilla give it a warm, comforting flavor. It tastes rich but is actually light and low in calories. It’s really easy to make and is best made ahead of time.
Bourbon Spiked Vanilla Pudding (vegan)
- 1 lb (1 package) of silken tofu
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 3 tbs (or 1 shot) of your favorite bourbon
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp arrowroot powder
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 cup chopped pecans (for topping)
- 1 tbs muscovado sugar (for topping)
Wrap tofu in a clean towel for 10 minutes to remove excess water. Place tofu, maple syrup, cinnamon, vanilla extract, arrowroot powder, and bourbon in a high powered blender and blend until smooth. Pour into 4 small ramekins to set. Chill for at least 2 hours or overnight. Top with muscovado and chopped pecans and serve.
