You read that correctly, a vegan jello chocolate pudding recipe! When I was a kid growing up, I loved a jello chocolate pudding. It didn’t matter if was instant jello chocolate pudding mix or even a jello pudding cup. Either one was fine with me. It wasn’t until I started getting older and reading the labels of the food I was eating. Than these jello chocolate pudding treats of my childhood went from iconic to scary.
The first ingredient on the store bought jello chocolate pudding is, of course, sugar. Followed by a bunch of ingredients that I can’t pronounce and don’t really want t be putting into by body. That’s why I want to share wth you this vegan jello chocolate pudding recipe that is only five ingredients. The best thing is that you can pronounce all these ingredients too!
The first ingredient and base of the pudding is avocado. Now I know what you’re thinking. Why am I using avocados in this jello chocolate pudding recipe. Let’s think about what happens when you smash and blend an avocado. The consistency you get resembles that of the jello chocolate pudding we are all familiar with. The only problem is that how do we get these avocados to taste like chocolate pudding? The answer is in the rest of the ingredients.
After the avocados, we add raw cacao powder, which gives our pudding that chocolate flavor. To sweeten up the chocolate pudding, we’re going to add some coconut nectar. You can also use maple syrup or agave if that’s what you have. Any liquid sweetener will work. Next, we add some coconut milk, which gives our chocolate pudding that smooth and silky consistency that we are looking for. The final ingredient is some vanilla extract.
Now there is only one thing left to do. Place all these ingredients into a blender and make our instant vegan jello chocolate pudding! You can make this chocolate pudding in less time than it will take you to drive the store and by some. That is how easy this vegan jello chocolate pudding recipe is to make.
