Dairy-Free Chocolate Pudding with Raspberry Infusion


This is one seriously fudgy dairy-free chocolate pudding. It has a double dose of chocolate (dairy-free cocoa and chocolate chips), along with a delicious infusion of fresh raspberries for a special summery treat. I originally created it for So Delicious Dairy Free a few years ago, in honor of National Chocolate Pudding Day, and thought it timely to update it today!

Inspired by Gail Davis’s vegan chocolate pudding, this dairy-free chocolate pudding takes just 10 minutes to whip up on the stovetop and makes a perfect cool treat in summer. Simply top it with the fresh raspberries, layer it into a parfait, or even freeze it into pudding pops!

Coconut milk beverage works like a dream in pudding thanks to its naturally rich consistency that seems comparable to 2% dairy milk or even whole milk. I always have unsweetened plain milk alternative on hand, so that is my beverage of choice in this dairy-free chocolate pudding. If you prefer, you can take Gail’s lead and use chocolate coconut milk beverage for a triple chocoholic dose. Just be sure to adjust the sweetener accordingly.

I created this recipe on National Chocolate Pudding Day (June 26th) for So Delicious Dairy Free. It highlights the richness of their coconut milk beverage, which is so perfect for pudding!
Serves: 4 servings
  1. Place the coconut milk beverage, ⅓ cup raspberries, cornstarch, cocoa powder, and salt in a blender, and puree until smooth.
  2. Pour the mixture into a saucepan, whisk in the honey or agave, and bring to a boil over medium heat. Bubble, while whisking, for 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and whisk in the chocolate chips and vanilla until smooth.
  3. Let cool to room temperature, spoon into an airtight container, cover and chill. It will firm up further as it cools.
  4. Spoon the chilled pudding into four servings dishes and top with the remaining ½ cup fresh raspberries.
