Dairy-Free Chocolate Pudding with Coconut Non-Dairy Whipped Cream!
Vegan Chocolate Mousse Coconut Cream:
Does this dairy-free chocolate pudding look familiar? Well, it does closely resemble the Dairy-Free Chocolate Icing recipe with the same basic ingredients.
- Organic Full-fat Canned Coconut Milk
- Organic Raw Cacao Powder
- Organic Powdered Sugar
- Pinch Sea Salt
Variations – add 1/4 tsp. of peppermint or almond oil to change up the flavors. Peppermint is especially fun for the holidays. Fresh sliced fruit, wild blueberries, raspberries, a few mint leaves and a dusting of cacao powder make wonderful garnishes.

Tips For Success:
- Use this brand of organic coconut milk (I have tried many and find success with this one always).
- Whisk the organic powdered sugar and the organic raw cacao together in a small bowl to remove lumps.
- Refrigerate the cans of organic coconut milk until very cold. (preferably overnight)
- Top with homemade Coconut Non-Dairy Whipped Cream.
Super easy, I love to make and keep this delicious pudding in the fridge for quick snacks during the week. Once made, I aim to consume this pudding within 2-3 days (stored in the refrigerator). Coconut milk is reported to last a week once the can is opened.
Good news – you can freeze leftover coconut milk an ice cube tray for later use. And that may work for this pudding as well, I will have to try.
It tends not to last so long around my house though. 😉
Tip: if you have extra Coconut Non-Dairy Whipped Cream already made, turn it into this Dairy-Free Chocolate Pudding! Sometimes when making Meyer Lemon Pudding Cakes, I have extra Coconut Whipped Cream. You guessed it – it becomes this amazing chocolate pudding!
