Ingredients

  • 1 cup white sugar, or to taste

  • ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder

  • cup cornstarch

  • ¼ teaspoon salt (Optional)

  • 3 cups unsweetened almond milk

  • 1 teaspoon butter (Optional)

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (Optional)

Directions

  1. Mix sugar, cocoa powder, cornstarch, and salt together in a saucepan; whisk in 1/4 cup almond milk until foamy and smooth. Continue adding almond milk, 1/4 cup at a time, to cocoa mixture until mixture is smooth and foamy each time. Place saucepan over medium-high heat and cook, stirring constantly, until mixture comes to a simmer and starts to thicken, about 5 minutes.

  2. Remove saucepan from heat and stir in butter until melted and smooth. Add vanilla extract and mix well. Pour pudding into serving bowl and refrigerate until chilled, at least 30 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

If desired, you can garnish with chocolate sandwich cookies, chocolate chips (great when served warm), vanilla wafers, or graham crackers. I like lining a casserole dish with chocolate wafer cookies or chocolate grahams and filling with pudding - banana pudding style!

Bananas are also great with this if you want to make a chocolate banana pudding.

One to two tablespoons of instant coffee granules can be added to dry mix to convert to a chocolate mocha pudding (you may wish to increase the sugar slightly)!

Add 1/2 shot of rum in place of vanilla, if preferred.

Can be made with any type of milk (dairy, non-dairy, soy, fat free, or any flavor almond milk)!
