So without further ado, let’s start making delicious and healthy chocolate pudding.
1 1/2 cups of soy milk
1/2 cup of cocoa powder (unsweetened)
3 tablespoons of cornstarch
2 tablespoons of water
1/4 teaspoon of stevia (powdered extract)
1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract
-Reach for a small mixing bowl. Combine 3 tablespoons of cornstarch and 2 tablespoons of water. Mix very well and make sure that there is no clump of cornstarch remaining. This mixture will help you come up with really a smooth and creamy pudding, making your dairy-free chocolate treat a joy to eat.
-Grab a small saucepan and heat it using medium heat. Combine soy milk, stevia powdered extract, vanilla extract and of course unsweetened cocoa powder. See to it that there’s no cocoa powder clump in sight.
-Afterwards, slowly stir in your cornstarch mixture. Continue stirring everything until it comes to a boil.
-Turn the heat to low and keep on stirring. It won’t take long before the mixture becomes really thick. Once this happens, switch off the stove immediately.
-As the mixture cools, it will continue to thicken. Let it cool for about 5 minutes more and transfer to your desired container. Stash it in the refrigerator afterwards and let it stay there for several minutes until chilled.
That’s how trouble-free it is to make your very own dairy-free chocolate pudding. Oh, and it’s not just dairy that it is free of, but also refined sugar that can damage your pearly whites, waistline and blood sugar levels.
By the way, provided that it is covered tightly, your homemade chocolate pudding that’s devoid of any ingredient that’s bad for your health can stay fresh in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. But it’s for certain that it’s going to be gone in a much shorter amount of time than that because it looks, tastes and smells irresistible!
Do you want to come up with dairy-free chocolate pudding that’s a lot thicker? What you need to do is scrap the cornstarch mixture and instead replace it with 1 teaspoon of grass-fed gelatin, which is prepared according to package directions. You add it to the mixture of soy milk, stevia powdered extract, vanilla extract and of course unsweetened cocoa powder just before it comes to a boil. But if you want your homemade chocolate pudding to be vegan, then it’s a much better idea for you to simply stick to the cornstarch mixture.
