Creamy Vegan Chocolate Pudding {Vegan, Gluten-Free & Paleo}


  • 1 can full fat coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tbs vanilla extract


  1. Add your coconut milk and your maple syrup to a medium saucepan. Sift in your cocoa powder and whisk the mixture together until it is full combined. Add in your pinch of salt and your vanilla extract and whisk some more.
  2. Bring this mixture to a boil over medium heat. Once it comes to a boil, turn it down and allow the mixture to simmer for fifteen minutes while whisking frequently. Your mixture is going to begin to thicken. It won't be the same consistency that you see in the pictures above until it cools.
  3. Remove your pot from the heat and allow your pudding to cool at room temperature, whisking occasionally.
  4. Once it has cooled down significantly, move it to an airtight container and place it in the refrigerator. Allow your mixture to chill completely before serving. This might take a few hours.
  5. Serve chilled! It goes great with some fresh berries or a dollop of coconut whipped cream!
