Pudding, snack packs, Swiss miss… This was the messiah of treats as a child in school. If your lunch box had a chocolate pudding, the kids without pudding were jealous. And if you’ve become vegan, you may think of your old childhood self with a snack pack and get jealous of them too… Well not anymore. This is a real simple and delicious homemade chocolate pudding.
What you’ll need to start is 3 dates. Soak the dates in warm water for 30 minutes and then chop them up.
Now gather the rest of your ingredients, and in a blender add 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, 3 soaked and chopped dates, 1/3 cup maple syrup, 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract, 2-3 medium sized ripe avocados, 1/2 cup of vegan friendly cocoa powder, 1/2 cup vanilla or chocolate almond milk and blend together.
As it blends, slowly add another 1/2 cup of your almond milk. Blend until a nice smooth creamy texture.
Scoop out into serving cups of your choice. Cover each serving cup and place in the fridge for at least an hour, and once chilled they will be ready to eat! They’re even better than I remember of my childhood pudding! Peace, Love, Grub!
