Chocolate or Carob Pudding (Vegan, Light)

Though I usually make this "light," I did include a couple of optional enrichments. A note about sweetener: I used to make this with agave nectar but am now using Truvia. I prefer to add sweetener after cooking, but you may want to add the sweetener while the pudding is cooking.

Ready In:
10mins
Serves:
Units:

ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons carob powder or 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 cups almond milk (or rice, or soy or cow's milk)
  • 3 -4 tablespoons agave nectar (use less sweetener for carob)
  • 14 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
  • 1 -3 teaspoon butter (optional) or 1 -3 teaspoon virgin coconut oil (optional)

directions

  • Blend carob or cocoa powder with cornstarch in saucepan by mashing them together with a fork to flatten any small lumps.
  • Add small amounts of almond milk gradually, blending well after each addition.
  • Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently. You can start at a higher heat for the first one or two minutes, but keep stirring and lower the heat so as not to scorch the pudding at the bottom.
  • You can add the vanilla if using, at this point.
  • Bring to a boil, lower heat, and boil for 1 minute, stirring constantly. You may add your sweetener of choice now, or after pudding is cooked.
  • Add butter or coconut oil, if using, and stir to melt and blend. (I prefer to add virgin coconut oil at this point so that it doesn't cook).
  • Chill or serve warm.

    I made this with carob, almond milk, vanilla and agave nectar. I did not add butter or oil. It was super-quick and yummy. I love the smooth, thick consistency of it.
