About Vegan Chocolate Recipe: Chocolate puddings are a class of desserts with chocolate flavors. There are two main types: a boiled then chilled dessert, texturally a custard set with starch. This vegan chocolate pudding is so rich, creamy, and chocolatey that you won’t believe it’s dairy free, healthy, and refined sugar free! Top with coconut whipped cream for a perfectly dreamy chocolate dessert. Ingredients for Chocolate Pudding
1 1/2 cups organic coconut cream from a can*
1/2 cup raw cacao powder or unsweetened cocoa powder, sifted
6 Tbsp pure maple syrup 6-8 Tbsp depending on how sweet you want it
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
generous pinch fine grain sea salt
How to Make
In a small saucepan over low heat, whisk together the coconut cream, cacao, and maple syrup (start with 6 Tbsp, or even less if you want a very dark chocolate pudding) until smooth. I used a small whisk to get everything nice and smooth.
The coconut cream will melt and the maple and cacao should combine well to create a smooth silky mixture. Continue to cook and stir over low/med heat for about 2 minutes, or until the mixture just begins to come to a boil with small bubbles.
Remove from heat at this point, and stir in the salt and vanilla. Taste, and add a bit more maple if you'd like a sweeter pudding. You can pour the mixture into individual containers/bowls to chill and set, or simply in one larger bowl only and divide later on.
Cover and refrigerate until set, or overnight for a thick creamy pudding. Makes about 4 servings. I love my pudding with a big dollop of whipped cream on top! Enjoy!
