Skinny Vegan Chocolate Pudding

Pudding is comfort food to me. And I am no snob to the Jello brand, but why go there when you can whip up this skinny vegan chocolate pudding that taste better and is better for you. You will never believe that this pudding is dairy-free, egg-free, soy-free, nut-free, and low-calorie. And that the base for this pudding is potatoes- SAY WHAT?

Yes golden potatoes make the perfect silky smooth base, but you would never know they are in there. I fooled my kids until my 11 year old saw me making it. She scrunched up her nose and was suddenly ” too full” to try any. “Hey this is the same pudding that you devoured the other day,” I told her. Oh well more for me.

No but seriously this recipe just works and it taste like a thick and decadent pudding. I like to make this at the beginning of the week and have it as a little afternoon snack for the next few days. I always need a little something sweet in the afternoons and after dinner.

So what do you need to make skinny vegan chocolate pudding? Lets get to it.

Skinny Vegan Chocolate Pudding Ingredients

Ingredients for skinny vegan chocolate pudding.

For Skinny Vegan Chocolate Pudding, you will need:

  • Golden potato– Golden potatoes work best for this recipe.
  • Unsweetened almond milk– Or any other non-dairy milk that you prefer.
  • Water
  • Agar Agar Powder– This a vegetarian substitute for gelatin. It’s such a great product to have on hand. You can use it to thicken pudding, soups, jams, ice cream, and make vegan jello. It has to be heated, so for this recipe you simmer it with water before adding to the blender- so easy.
  • Cocoa powder
  • Cocao butter– This is optional, but you won’t regret buying it. Just a little bit adds a richness to the pudding. The kind that I use comes in little convenient wafers. You can use it for may things, such as blender hot cocoa (let me know in the comments if you would like me to post my recipe for it- it’s great and low cal).
  •  Vanilla
  • Sugar– The amount is really a matter of preference. I like to use just a little vegan cane sugar along with stevia, as I feel that stevia alone can make the final product taste a bit bitter. You can use use any form of sweetener that you like in place of the cane sugar, such as maple syrup. Truvia Baking Blend works great for this recipe as well.
  •  Sweetleaf Stevia– You can add a bit more or less to suite you taste, or you can substitute a different sweetener if you prefer.
