Chocolate pudding is a delicious treat that I particularly enjoy homemade. I was sent some Silk Cashewmilk to try (as part of this sponsored post), and as soon as I tasted it I knew that the creamy texture would make for a great dairy free homemade chocolate pudding! I have a couple of family pudding recipes that we love, so I adapted the simpler of the two to create a dairy free chocolate pudding recipe for this post.
Dairy Free Chocolate Pudding
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup baking cocoa (this makes it very chocolatey, so if you prefer a light chocolate flavor you can use less)
- 1/4 cup corn starch
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 4 cups Silk Cashewmilk – we used the unsweetened, but the original sweetened version also works (it will create a sweeter dessert)
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
Combine all of the dry ingredients in a pan and stir well. Then, turn on the stove and slowly add the Cashew milk, stirring as you go. At first, it will look like this:
Bring it to a boil, and allow it to boil lightly for two minutes.
Add vanilla, and pour into whatever container you want to store and serve it in. I used a variety of Ball jars for ours. Set in the fridge to chill. One batch will make 6-8 servings.
Once your pudding is chilled, it’s time for a taste test. I was impressed that the pudding had a nice, creamy texture, although I did miss the butter I usually add to this recipe. I think next time I will try adding one tablespoon of coconut oil.
