Servings : 4 servings
Cook Time 15 mins


  • 2 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch arrowroot should also work, but I haven’t tested it
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup of maple syrup
  • 1 pinch salt
  • ⅛ - ¼ tsp of cinnamon optional
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 3/4 cups cold vanilla almond milk unsweetened


  • 1 T of raw sugar or sugar of your choice
  • 2-4 T of Dairy free chocolate chips optional
  • So Delicious CoCo Whip


  • In a small saucepan combine the cornstarch, cocoa powder, salt, cinnamon, 3T of milk, maple syrup and vanilla extract, stirring to incorporate until it looks a bit like frosting. 
  • Place on medium heat and begin adding remaining almond milk, ¼ cup at a time, stirring constantly to keep the mixture smooth. Add in 1 T of raw sugar, if desired, for extra sweetness. 
  • Continue to cook over medium heat and continue to stir until pudding is like a thick sauce.  This may take a little while. If you want to add in the optional chocolate chips, turn off heat and stir them in now.  If the pudding thins out too much from the chocolate, just heat it again for a few minutes. 
  • Transfer the pudding into individual ramekins or into a bowl. Place plastic wrap directly on the surface to prevent a skin from forming.  Let cool and enjoy with cocowhip!
