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
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 😉
