Ever miss those ready-made silken dessert tofu packages they sell in most grocery stores? There is a Filipino version of it that is easily adaptable to a sugar-free, keto-friendly form called “taho”, which is a heated dessert of silken tofu in a simple syrup. This is my low-carb version of it.

Keto Filipino Silken Tofu in Syrup Recipe



  1. To make the arnibal (the syrup), combine the Swerve Brown, water, salt and vanilla in a small saucepan and heat over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil, stir to dissolve the Swerve, and lower heat to a simmer. Continue simmering for about 2-4 minutes and remove from heat and cover until ready to use.

  2. Place silken tofu in a microwave-safe bowl and heat up the tofu on high for 1-3 minutes, depending on the power of your microwave.

  3. To serve, scoop slices of warm silken tofu into a small bowl or cup. Pour hot arnibal on top. Serve warm.
