Updated: Feb 13, 2022
I'm excited to share this rich, luscious, uber-easy chocolate pudding recipe with you! It's a sweet treat that you can feel better about since it is filled with healthy fats and gut-healthy probiotics.
Apologies to the many of you who've been loyally following my blog for years and have come to expect many new recipes to try every year.
Life's been kinda crazy, to say the least... helping to lead a statewide grassroots organization and touring the state speaking about health-and-freedom weren't even on my radar last year. I haven't had much time to devote to developing new recipes like I used to, but hopefully this recipe hits the spot.
About This A.maz.ing Chocolate Pudding
This recipe is a real winner:
no processed foods here - it is made with only real food ingredients
easy peasy - it requires NO cooking at all
nourishing - loaded with healthy fats and gut healthy probiotics
This recipe gets it's richness from Aroy-D coconut milk. If you haven't ever tried that brand of coconut milk, let me just tell you that it is worth special-ordering: it is smooth and creamy, shakes up really easy, and has no added stabilizers.
Raw milk kefir gives this recipe a nutritional kick. Did you know that milk kefir has been scientifically linked to a wide array of health benefits including improved digestion, lower blood pressure and cholesterol, reduced inflammation, less allergies and asthma, and even tumor prevention?
For the essential sweet taste, this recipe uses a combination of real maple syrup and honey. Those two somehow result in a more neutral sweet flavor than either alone. That way the flavor of the cocoa can really shine through. The honey is really important, too, as it thickens once it is cold in the fridge and gives this a pudding consistency.
