Sometimes my cravings for chocolate are strong. Such was the case when I decided to make this vegan chocolate pudding. However, I still wanted to make it a healthy chocolate pudding, because that’s just what I do.

A friend was coming over for dinner, so I thought it would be the perfect time to gauge interest in this healthy chocolate pudding. Neither one of us is vegan, but I wanted to make this pudding as easy as possible. Which meant not needing to cook it over the stove-top or have much prep and hands on time.

I set to work quickly and pulled out a couple of different ingredients I had on hand. Those included: dates, cocoa powder, aquafaba {read more about that here}, dark chocolate chips {obviously use dairy free to make it vegan}, avocado and almond milk. This grocery list may sound a bit odd, but trust me when I say that all ingredients combined make for a to-die-for dessert.

So Simple Vegan Chocolate Pudding

Now that you know the secret ingredients, it’s time to learn that the vegan chocolate pudding only requires one appliance to make: a food processor. If you don’t yet have a food processor, I would highly suggest picking one up. They can do so much, like make pita bread, copycat Larabars, healthy chocolate brownies and more.

Just toss all of the ingredients in your food processor and run on high speed until the dates are completely broken down and smooth. If your dates are on the harder side {read: not totally fresh}, soak them in super hot water for about 10-15 minutes. This should help soften them so you don’t end up with slightly chunky pudding. {Which is what happened to me the first time around.}

Chill Out

Like all good puddings, they require some good chilling time. So if you’re making dinner for a friend or Valentine {hey, it’s coming up}, then make sure to make the dessert first. This way it will have plenty of time to chill out before being devoured.
