Hey everybody! We hope you’re having a great Monday and that you had an awesome weekend. It’s been so warm here this past week that we couldn’t believe it was February! We had the doors and windows open, and we were trying to get as much fresh air as we possibly could (we even had on shorts and flip-flops!)
That all came to a crashing halt on Saturday when it snowed. Yup, it snowed! It was 75F on Friday and it snowed on Saturday. We still can’t believe it.
Since it’s gotten cold again, we thought we’d bring a kind of wintery dessert for you guys! Homemade Chocolate Pudding, dairy free pudding to be exact! Since we don’t reat very much dairy, if any at all, we try to make dairy free desserts because we know how hard it can be to find them.
This is not only dairy-free, it’s also ridiculously easy to make, you just put it all in the pot and boil it! We know, we know, that’s it?? Yes, that’s it! It’s probably the easiest pudding you’ll make. 🙂
You’ll notice that in the directions, we say to sprinkle the cornstarch over the chocolate and then pour the milk over it. We know it seems silly, but it serves a purpose, we promise. While testing recipes, we realized that this is the best way to avoid cornstarch chunks in your pudding. So, if you don’t want chunky pudding (and trust us, you don’t, we ate more of it then we’d like to admit while testing out recipes), then do it this way! 😉
8 oz dairy free chocolate (chopped, if it’s not chocolate chips)
1/2 cup sugar
2 1/2 cups almond milk
1/4 cup cornstarch
- Place the chocolate into a 2-qt sauce pan. Sprinkle cornstarch over the chocolate. Pour in milk and sugar.
- Cook on med or med-high until it becomes thick and begins to boil, stirring frequently. (ours took about 10 minutes)
- Once done cooking, pour into a bowl (or whatever you want to serve it in) to cool. Cover the top of the pudding with plastic wrap while it cools, to prevent a skin from forming.
- Serve cold. Enjoy!
