Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Serves: 6 servings
  • 1½ cups + 1 cup dairy-free milk beverage, divided
  • 1½ cups canned coconut milk
  • ½ to ⅔ cup sugar, Sucanat, or coconut sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • ⅔ cup Dutch-processed cocoa powder
  • ¼ cup non-GMO cornstarch
  1. In a large saucepan over medium heat, warm the 1½ cups milk beverage, coconut milk, sugar, and salt.
  2. Pour the remaining 1 cup milk beverage into a bowl or large glass measuring cup. Sift in the cocoa powder and cornstarch, and whisk until smooth.
  3. Pour the cocoa mixture into the saucepan in a slow, steady stream, while whisking.
  4. Cook, whisking frequently, until it thickens to a thin pudding consistency. It will thicken more as it cools.
  5. Let the pudding cool to room temperature, then refrigerate for 2 hours.
Chipotle Chocolate Option: Whisk ¼ to ½ teaspoon (to taste) chipotle pepper powder into the saucepan right after the cocoa mixture.
