In 2011, we co-hosted a recipe contest with ZenSoy and this recipe for Fat Elvis Vegan Pudding Pops was a winner. It’s a super-easy treat that’s sweet, nutritious, and just indulgent enough. And the recipe is versatile for most dietary needs. So today I’m updating this post to ensure everyone can find it.
Fat Elvis Vegan Pudding Pops made Easy with Dairy-Free Pudding
Kiersten, the recipe creator, used ZenSoy Pudding (4 individual cups) to make these pudding pops. Zen no longer makes soy pudding, but here are some great store-bought and homemade options for the chocolate pudding in this recipe.
- Zen Almondmilk Chocolate Pudding – yes, they make nut-based puddings now!
- Wayfare Chocolate Pudding – this is a great allergy-friendly option.
- Simple Delish Pudding & Pie Filling – this vegan brand has been around for a while and is quite popular.
- Vivian’s Live Again Instant Chocolate Pudding – we haven’t tried this brand yet, but they have a loyal following.
- Vegan Dark Chocolate Pudding Recipe – this is a great basic recipe.
- Chocolate Avocado Pudding Recipe – avocado makes a great naturally rich base for pudding.
- Silken Dark Chocolate Pudding – tofu pudding is a delicious classic, and still a favorite.
- Raspberry Chocolate Pudding – the raspberries add another dimension to this recipe.
