Vegan Chocolate Pudding

Jill Dalton
This Vegan, Dairy-Free Chocolate Pudding is a special recipe that I get to share with you. I have fond memories of both my Grandma and Mom making chocolate pudding from scratch and serving it in bowls while it was piping hot. It was the most special treat especially in the middle of our extremely cold Nebraska winters. I have adapted the recipe to be vegan and refined sugar free for all of you to enjoy with me.

    I’m rather lazy when it comes to cooking and knew I would not want to strain so I just put all the ingredients in the Vitamix and let it do all the work of blending and cooking. And, because I do like things on the sweet side, I added a few more dates. Fabulous! Thanks for a dessert that I can feel so good about eating.

    My name is Sherry and plant based recipes are new to me. I have multiple food allergies and have been looking for foods that are consequence free for a long time. I got a wonderful cheese sauce recipe from that inspired me to check out YouTube for more recipes and information.
    The first video I watched was yours as you described your transition to this lifestyle. I am looking forward to trying the recipes and experiencing some improvements to my own health as I experiment with these different types of foods and recipes. Thankyou for sharing what you have learned and for encouraging others as they strive to improve their own health.

  3. We always ate our chocolate pudding hot when I was growing up. I can’t wait to try this!
    Thanks for sharing

  4. I wanted to try this recipe for my son but he is allergic to cashews. Can I just skip cashew or what would be a good substitute for cashew? Can I add almonds? Thank you.
