Vegan and gluten free chocolate pudding for Sweet New Zealand



This is sooooo yummy, it reminds me of those soy chocolate puddings that you can buy in the fridge compartment of many organic-vegetarian stores (and now in some supermarkets too) but it is homemade and therefore even tastier.

For 4 puddings:
500 ml oragnic soy milk (I use Vitasoy, either Original, Milky or Calci Plus)
2 tbsp raw sugar
1 heap tbsp cocoa (the better the cocoa the better the flavour, so don't go for cheap baking cocoa, but for 'hot chocolate' quality)
1 tbsp cornflour
Natural Vanilla essence (or a little cinnamon if you prefer)

Dissolve the dried ingredients with a little soy milk to make a paste, then add the rest of the milk and mix well. Put on the stove on low and, always stirring, bring to simmering point. Make sure that you stir well, especially around the borders and bottom of the pot, so that the pudding has a smooth consistency. As soon as it start thickening turn the element off, add the vanilla essence (if using) and keep stirring until it has cooled down a bit. Divide into 4 dessert ramekins or small bowls (or teacups) and refrigerate.

  5. Hi Alessandra,
    I'll send my vegan entry for this month's sweet nz. Thought that I'm going back slowly to my previous lifestyle: being a vegan. I feel that my body starts to refuse animal-based food, so this is the time to turn back to my original diet. I still am looking around for milk-substitute though. My body reacts badly to soy milk. I've been using rice milk, so far so good.

    Love,
    Arfi

  6. Ciao Arfi, there are a lot of different milks now, almond is my favourite but it doesn't taste like the one in Italy, then there is oat, and even coconut… but my favourite is soy milk, pity that your body doesn't like it.
