Sugar-Free Vegan Chocolate Pudding

Vegan Choco Pudding

The day is here! The day is here! I finally get to share with you my surprise recipe for fat-free, sugar-free, vegan chocolate pudding!

I’m so excited!

This recipe was a total fluke. Last week, I wanted something sweet; but what do you eat when you live sugar-free? Well…I always go for sugar-free hot chocolate. It’s delish!

But as most of you know, for the last month, I’ve been eating fat-free as well. I’m on a short-term treatment protocol that requires that I live fat-free for 4-months. So, I can’t have cow’s milk or almond milk. In fact, I can’t drink any store bought milk because they all contain oil.

So, I’ve been making fat-free RAW¬†brown rice milk, right here in my very own kitchen (and feeling very smug about my brilliant innovation).

I thought I could use the RAW brown rice milk in my sugar-free hot chocolate. But something magical happened instead.

As I was heating up the hot chocolate, the RAW brown rice milk started to thicken. And, before I knew it, I had a hot, bubbly cauldron of chocolate pudding! Totally unintentional. Totally serendipitous!

I’ve never come across a recipe like this before. And, I’m so happy that I can share it with you.

Living sugar-free or even vegan doesn’t mean you are chocolate pudding free, too.
Serves: 4

  • 2 cups of RAW brown rice milk. Follow the linked recipe. **only strain the milk once, through a fine metal mesh strainer. Don’t use a nut milk bag. You need the milk to contain a fair bit of RAW brown rice starch**
  • 1 tsp of RAW organic vanilla powder OR 1 tsp of pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp of RAW cocoa/chocolate powder
  • 1/4 tsp of sea salt
  • 25-30 drops of vanilla liquid stevia (I use NuNaturals alcohol-free vanilla liquid stevia)

  1. In a small sauce pot, pour in the RAW brown rice milk (make sure you shake the milk up before pouring it out)
  2. Add the vanilla powder OR extract, along with the sea salt and vanilla liquid stevia
  3. Heat the milk at high heat, until it starts to bubble
  4. Lower the heat to medium/low until the mixture thickens to a pudding consistency
  5. Pour the hot pudding into small bowls and cool the pudding on the counter for 15 minutes
  6. Place the pudding in the fridge until it’s cool and ready to eat!

    Do you think I could substitute organic sugar for the vanilla liquid stevia? Should I add a little more vanilla extract then? I am trying to stay away from products that contain “natural flavors”, and they are present in the liquid stevia drops. Thanks for your help.

      That’s a good question. I’m going to say, yes, you can use any form of sugar in this recipe. Mind you, I haven’t made the recipe with sugar (since I’m sugar-free), but I’m quite sure that it would work just fine : ) Should you add more vanilla extract? That’s up to you — I like to taste everything right at the end, and decide if I want a little more of this or that. Vanilla is super delicious…so I would think, ‘yes! give me more vanilla!’ Enjoy the pudding : )

    Very new to your website and like what I am reading so far… the raw brown rice milk has me very interested and in fact I will be making it tonight// the above recipe for chocolate pudding looks delicious but I cannot seem to find the amount of cocoa (and type) you used… I also am not seeing any area where comments are posted – maybe someone else would have mentioned this and you posted a amendment???
    Thanks very much and great web site – I am sure I will be enjoying and learning lots!! Anne

      Hi Anne! Thanks for having an eagle eye! The cocoa powder measurement was missing. More often than not, I just add 1 tbsp of RAW cocoa powder to 2 cups of RAW brown rice milk. But there are days when I want more chocolately punch : ) So…I add another teaspoon. And, in terms of brands, I like: Navitas Naturals RAW Cocoa Powder; but any RAW cocoa powder from your local health food store will do perfectly.
