In case you missed it, I LOVE dessert. Seriously. Love. There is nothing too sugary, gooey, rich, period. This at times conflicts with my fitness goals. But apparently chocolate cravings don’t care. So, I’ve always loved coming up with healthier options to satisfy me. This lightened up dark chocolate pudding tastes anything but light. It’s gluten-free, no added sugar, and would be dairy-free if it wasn’t for the butter. It’s rich, delicious and .. yeah I’m going to go eat more now.
Dark Chocolate Pudding
3 T Hershey Special Dark Cocoa
2 T Arrowroot Powder
2 c Unsweetened Cashew Milk (Silk brand)
1/2 t Vanilla Extract
10-20 drops Stevia Extract
1 T grass fed Butter (like Kerrygold)
Combined Cocoa and Arrowroot Powder in a saucepan. Add Cashew Milk, and bring to a boil over medium heat while stirring consistently. Once it comes to a boil, reduce the heat and cook for another 3-5 minutes until it thickens to a yogurt-like consistency. Remove from heat. Stir in Vanilla extract, Stevia and Butter. Poor into individual dishes and chill for at least 3 hours without disturbing. Enjoy!
