Vegan Chocolate and Coconut Cream pudding (GF)

IMG_5628IMG_5630IMG_5629

This recipe is a particular favourite of mine at the moment and I just happened to concoct it on one of those rare nights I find myself really wanting something sweet and chocolately.

These are the best times to get inventive with food! I just so happened to have a can of coconut milk in the fridge and some premade oat cream. I also had some dark chocolate. I didn’t really know what to expect with the oat cream as I’m still experimenting with it but it worked so well when mixing and set nicely. I have had good feedback from my taste testers too! It’s AMAZING!

It’s super creamy and will definitely fill a void if you are missing chocolate puddings!

The entire dessert containsΒ 13g sugar of which only 5g is unrefined and is 300 kcal. I have based this on 2 servings using Green and Blacks Organic dark chocolate.

You could make it completely refined sugar free if you went to extra lengths to get hold of a sugar-free, dairy free chocolate alternative. To be honest though, there isn’t that much chocolate that if you do limit sugar a normal dark chocolate wouldn’t do too much harm to the waistline. It’s only 3 squares of chocolate per person.

There is a bit of prep required but all in all it is a quick and easy dessert with minimal ingredients. You can experiment with different flavours. I also like to roast hazelnuts, blend them once cool and add them into the pudding before putting into the fridge. I top with roasted hazelnuts to create what I would call the vegan version of Nutella crossed with Forrerro RoshΓ©!

This pudding would make the perfect Valentines day treat for that special Vegan in your life! What better way to say “I love you” than a completely plant based chocolate treat!

Serves 2

Ingredients

40g Organic dark chocolate (or gf vegan chocolate such as moofree)
125 ml Homemade Organic Oat cream
1 tsp Organic Agave syrup
4 tbs Chilled Coconut Cream (refrigerate a can of coconut milk over night or for at least 2 hours)
6 raspberries (opt)

Instructions

1. Prepare oat cream half an hour in advance. Get recipe here.
2. On a low temperature add boiling water to a pan. Filling about a third.
3. Place a large mixing bowl on top of the pan and add chocolate. Do not overheat as it will ruin the chocolate.
4. Stir continuously until all the chocolate is melted.
5. Once the chocolate is completely melted stir the oat cream in slowly. Make sure it’s all mixed in and transfer to the dish your serving in. I normally use a ramican.
6. Put them in the fridge to set for at least one hour. The longer it’s left the creamier it gets.
7. When ready to serve remove cream layer from coconut milk. Once coconut milk is cooled you will see a separation from the coconut water and the cream. This cream can either be whipped with a hand mixer or by hand. I add half a tsp of Agave syrup for extra sweetness but that is optional. The coconut water can be used in a curry so it doesn’t go to waste.
8. Top the chocolate pudding with the cream and some grated chocolate, serve with fresh organic raspberries.

Can be stored in the fridge covered for up to 5 days.

  2. It looks and sounds delicious. Your photos are amazing. One doesn’t have to lack flavoursome foods even if one is vegan eh? Thanks for this

  3. I would love to share this on Pinterest. You should add Pinterest to your sharing options. I bet you would get a lot of shares on Pinterest alone!

  4. Four of us enjoyed the dessert tonight. I doubled the recipe and then made a 2nd double batch of the pudding. We each enjoyed an incredibly decadent double serving with a single serving of whipped unsweetened coconut cream. I topped with blueberries. I guess curry is on the menu soon with the coconut water.
