Silky Sweetheart Puddings

Serves 4

We love these puddings with red grapefruit, but strawberries, raspberries or other seasonal fruits would also be terrific. Make the puddings in heart-shaped cups if you have them.

Ingredients: 
  • 1 1/2 cup unsweetened almondmilk
  • 1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons agar-agar flakes or 1 3/4 teaspoons agar-agar powder
  • 3/4 cup drained silken tofu
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 5 teaspoons honey
  • 2 red grapefruits

Method: 

Place almondmilk and agar-agar in a small saucepan and bring to a simmer. Lower heat and simmer, stirring occasionally until the agar-agar melts, 3 to 4 minutes (2 minutes for powder). Transfer to a blender and add tofu, vanilla and honey, and blend until smooth. Pour mixture into 4 (6-ounce) ramekins or custard cups. Cover and refrigerate until set, at least 2 hours. 

Meanwhile, cut thin slices off the top and bottom of grapefruit and set on a cutting board. Slice down along the curve of the fruit, removing all skin and white pith, and cutting all the way to the flesh. Working over a bowl, cut along each side of the membranes to release the sections, allowing them to fall into the bowl along with any juice. Repeat with remaining grapefruit. 

To serve, run a knife around the edge of each pudding and invert puddings onto plates. Surround with grapefruit sections.
