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.
