Creamy Dairy-Free Chocolate Pudding
1/2 c. sugar
1/3 c. sifted cocoa
2 T. cornstarch
dash of salt
1 beaten egg
2 c. coconut milk beverage (from carton)
1/4 c. dairy-free semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 1/2 t. vanilla
1 1/2 T. dairy-free margarine
In a microwave safe dish mix sugar, cocoa, cornstarch and salt together with whisk. Add beaten egg and 1/2 c. of the milk to dry mixture and whisk until smooth. Slowly whisk in the remaining milk. Microwave on full power for 2 min. initially and then 30 - 60 minute intervals stirring between each time. Pudding should be at a full boil and thickened when finished. Add chocolate chips and margarine. Stir until melted and combined. Stir in vanilla. Pour into a bowl and place plastic wrap over surface of pudding. Chill and serve.
Increase sugar by 1-2 T. for a sweeter pudding.
We enjoy making parfaits with pudding, fruit and dairy-free whipped topping. We added a gluten-free cut-out cookie in this picture.
Enjoy this creamy, chocolaty pudding!
