Pudding is a food term with many meanings, but in the U.S. we often use it to describe the custard-like dessert that is commonly flavored with chocolate and vanilla.
Creamy chocolate pudding is by far one of the easiest vegan desserts you can make, and the vegan version is much simpler than any version with eggs or dairy. In fact, most recipes require only three or four ingredients and a blender!
The recipe is very plain and simple, so if you’re looking to jazz it up, try using a higher-quality cocoa powder or adding additional flavors. Raspberry or cherry flavoring can be used in place of vanilla, or you can throw fresh fruit into the mix. Just keep in mind that too much will change the consistency of the finished product.
