Creamy Chocolate Pudding

Clean Eating Creamy Chocolate Pudding - "Almost" Raw, Vegan, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Paleo-Friendly, No Refined Sugars | The Healthy Family and Home

When I first started eating clean and healthier, this Creamy Chocolate Pudding was one of the first raw, vegan dessert recipes I used to make.

However, over the years I’ve tweaked it a little and added something that just takes it over the moon!

While you can find 5,247 (just kidding!) chocolate pudding/mousse recipes on the internet using basically the same ingredients (avocados, chocolate and a sweetener), I changed mine up and added an entire can of full-fat coconut milk.

The difference it makes is unbelievable.

It adds an entirely new layer of creaminess to it that makes it hard to believe it’s good for you, unlike highly processed pudding.

Here are the 11 ingredients in the traditional store-bought pudding cups:

      Hi there Becky! Yes, the photos are a result of just me and my little ol’ camera and believe it or not, most of my dishes/accessories I find at thrift stores and garage sales. The glass dish in this photo was a thrift store find and I think it cost like 0.79 cents lol!

      Not to worry…as decadent as this dessert tastes, you cannot taste the avocado or coconut milk in it. It truly tastes like regular pudding and even my husband (who is hard to please sometimes as he mostly prefers the non-healthy versions of the foods I make) couldn’t believe it was a healthy version.

      I used coconut nectar (because it is low-glycemic) but you can use maple syrup or your favorite liquid sweetener instead.

      Let me know how you like it if you make it ;) xoxoxo

      Hi there Jenn! Yes, you can definitely substitute vanilla extract. You can use the same amount or double it if you’d like.

      I like to use the vanilla bean powder (especially in raw desserts) because it doesn’t have the alcohol taste that normally evaporates when used in baking.

      When you use the vanilla bean powder, you only have to use 1/2 as much as the extract, so just try the same amount of extract and add a little more if you think it needs it.

      Thanks so much for your question and I hope you enjoy the recipe ;)
