Chocolate Almond ANYTIME Pudding – Raw Vegan Recipe Two Ways

by Kristen Suzanne in raw chocolate

I’ve been eating a lot of raw vegan chocolate pudding lately. What can I say though… it’s awesome, super easy to make, choc-full of nutrients(!), and can be eaten ANYTIME of the day. Yes, you heard that right… ANYTIME of the day. Why not? With uber healthy ingredients like fresh raw almond milk and almond butter, avocado, and raw chocolate (plus protein powder if you make variation #2 below), it’s a stellar addition to your day. In fact, I’ve had it for breakfast before training at the gym to keep me fueled (see the variation recipe below with extra protein added), I’ve had it as a snack, and I’ve had it for dessert. Love love love it!

Chocolate Almond ANYTIME Pudding

Yield 4 servings

Recipe by Kristen Suzanne of KristensRaw.com

Place your pitted dates in a bowl and add enough filtered water to reach the top of the dates. Let them soak like this for up to an hour. Strain off the water and put the dates in to your blender. Add the remaining ingredients to your blender and blend until creamy and smooth. Store leftovers in an airtight, glass container in your refrigerator for up to three days. This recipe also freezes wonderfully!

* If you don’t have this on hand, you could use any raw (or non-raw) plant-based milk.

** I also love having this pudding with sliced banana added on top. Soooo good!

Variation #2: Chocolate Almond ANYTIME Pudding (with protein!)

Yield 4 servings

Recipe by Kristen Suzanne of KristensRaw.com

Place your pitted dates in a bowl and add enough filtered water to reach the top of the dates. Let them soak like this for up to an hour. Strain off the water and put the dates in to your blender. Add the remaining ingredients to your blender and blend until creamy and smooth. Store leftovers in an airtight, glass container in your refrigerator for up to three days. This recipe also freezes wonderfully!

*I make mine with Sun Warrior’s chocolate protein powder, but I suspect it’s also awesome with Vega’s Choc-A-Lot Shake & Go!
