Chocolate Pudding

Jen Hoy
This creamy, luscious chocolate pudding recipe is an amazingly simple dessert, and the big surprise is that it's vegan. It is nearly as rich and velvety as its traditional cousin, but is low in fat and naturally sweetened. Serve alone, sprinkled with chopped nuts, with Vanilla Tofu Whip or Walnut Cream

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 3 tablespoons arrowroot powder
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 ½ cups almond or soy milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup agave nectar
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 pinch of sea salt

Preparation:

In a small bowl, combine arrowroot and water to form a paste.

Stir together almond milk, vanilla, agave, cocoa, salt and arrowroot mixture in a stainless steel or other non-reactive saucepan.

Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Continue stirring until the pudding thickens. Remove from heat.

Pour pudding into a ceramic dish or into 4 individual cups. Pudding will continue to thicken as it cools. Allow to cool five minutes, then refrigerate until chilled.

Serves 4
