Canihua Chocolate Pudding

I used to love chocolate pudding but never was fully satisfied with the vegan sugar free options – until now! I came up with the yummiest ever chocolate pudding which is not only super easy to make but also 100% healthy; no sugar, no oil, no dairy!

You do not know canihua yet? Canihua is similar to quinoa, yet smaller and it has a dark brown color. It has a nutty and somehow chocolate like taste which makes it the perfect base for a sweet chocolate pudding. Plus it is super healthy, containing loads of fiber, protein and iron. It also  has plenty vitamin B1 and B2. You should definetly give it a try 🙂

All you need for this delicious and healthy pudding is a blender and a few simple ingredients:

For four big bowls you will need

200g Canihua
2 handful Dates
3-6 Tbs Cocoa (depending on if you like it darker or lighter)
A dash of vanilla
A dash of water or plant milk

A few cocoa nibs if you like.

Cook the canihua until soft and then add all ingredients to your blender. You may want to blend the dates with a little bit of water or plant milk first if you do not have a high speed blender; just a question of making sure you will not end up with a pudding full of date pieces. Blend everything until you have a smooth pudding. Add some cocoa nibs if you like.

This chocolate pudding tastes great both hot and cold and you can have it for breakfast, lunch or dinner – it is super healthy and because of the canihua it actually is a whole meal. We had it for dinner a couple of times lately because we all love it so much. We eat a huge bowl of it each and we feel completetly satisfied and great afterwards. Go ahead and try and I promise you will not be dissapointed 😉

    Looks yummy, I havent heard about canihua before though. Seems very healthy:) I was wondering do you consider to make a post about baby vegan diet? Actually I am kind of curious how it is,especially for the little baby who doesnt drink mom’s milk anymore. We also going for a trip with my husband – finally our holidays:) We’re going by the sea for 5 days, I love the sea so much. We’re planning to jog every morning on the beach:) Have a lovely trip, hugs:)))

    I’ve never head of canihua before, but it sounds amazing and a healthy alternative to sugar; I’ll have to look into using it in baking and perhaps I’ll start with this recipe, which looks incredible! Thanks so much for sharing, beauty, and I hope you have a great weekend ahead!

    This sounds so amazing! I have wanted to incorporate dates into my baking but have been a bit wary for some reason. Masking them with cocoa and turning them into pudding is a surefire way to get me eating them. Thank you for sharing!

    Liebe Larissa, da bin ich davon überzeugt, dass ich nicht enttäuscht sein werde! Tatsächlich läuft mir alleine beim Lesen das Wasser im Mund zusammen und ich hätte jetzt zu gerne diesen Pudding vor mir 🙂 Ich liebe nämlich Schokopudding sehr und bin mir ganz sicher, dass mir auch diese noch ganz sicher wesentlich gesündere Variante als die, die ich normalerweise zu mir nehme, sehr gut schmeckt 🙂
