3-Ingredient Vegan Chocolate Pudding

25 Feb

Chocolate craving + lack of chocolate at home = This recipe. I decided I would try mixing the cocoa powder I had leftover from baking Christmas treats with some of the almond butter I had on hand. Mixed together I got a gross looking paste so I decided to pour some almond milk in to thin it out and somehow that magical combination turned into a decadent chocolate pudding.

Ingredients:

2 tbs almond butter (I’m sure other nut butters would work just as well)

2 tbs cocoa powder (or cacao, my roommate has tried that with success)

2 tbs almond milk (or any type of milk)

This recipe could not be easier.

This is what the mixture looks like with just one tbs of almond milk – it is more like a spread so if you’re thinking you want a sort of nutella substitute, stop here.

I add a tiny bit of sea salt to deepen the flavor. Make sure you are tasting as you go, if it’s not sweet enough add some honey, agave, or maple syrup.

photo 4The pudding is delicious on it’s own but I like to dip my fruit in it (it makes me feel better about eating this for breakfast) – I usually use Granny Smith apples, but bananas, oranges, and berries all work very well also. This batch makes enough for 1-2 people, but is easily multiplied for larger groups.

      So glad we could help! In my opinion, chocolate is a necessity no matter what the dietary restrictions are.
