Description

The best vegan chocolate pudding – made without avocado, banana, or tofu! This is the real deal–chocolatey, rich, and creamy.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 (13oz) can full fat coconut milk
  • 1 1/4 cups unsweetened almond milk
  • 3 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa or cacao powder
  • 4 Tbsp arrowroot starch/arrowroot flour
  • 1/3 cup coconut or maple sugar
  • 2/3 cup dairy free chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp almond extract (optional)
  • pinch salt

Instructions

  1. In a medium saucepan, whisk together cocoa powder, arrowroot, and sugar. Pour in the coconut and almond milk and whisk to combine. Bring to a bubble over medium heat, stirring regularly. The mixture will slowly thicken as it comes to a low boil. Whisk it for about 2 minutes after it starts bubbling. You’ll feel it thicken.
  2. Remove from the heat and stir in chocolate chips, vanilla, almond (if using), and salt. Whisk until smooth.
  3. Transfer to a container or serving cups. Press plastic wrap against the surface of the pudding (to prevent a “skin” from forming). Refrigerate until completely chilled. Pudding will continue to thicken as it cools.
  4. If the pudding ends up thicker than you prefer, you can thin it out with a tiny drizzle of additional almond or coconut milk.

Notes

Thicker, thinner. This pudding does continue to thicken as it cools. If you want to loosen it up a bit, just add a splash of  milk and whisk it in.

What about lumps? I don’t mind a few little lumps here and there, but if you want yours completely smooth or end up with some accidental lumps, you can either whisk-whisk-whisk till things smooth out, or just use an immersion blender to smooth things out. Works like a charm!
