My good friend Abby passed on this recipe to me because she knows I am a choco-holic and I love a good recipe that uses my Vitamix.  I made this pudding over the weekend for a few non vegans and it went over great!  The trick is that it tastes DELICIOUS so people don’t care if it’s “vegan” or “dairy free” – it’s just YUMMY!

Abby’s 4 Ingredient Chocolate Pudding

1 Can Coconut Milk (must be full fat) or Coconut Cream, chilled

4-6 Dates, pitted

5 tablespoons of cocoa powder

2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract

Place can of coconut milk in the refridgerator for a few hours to create coconut milk solids.  When ready to eat, scoop coconut milk solids into a blender or food processor along with dates, cocoa powder and vanilla extract.  Pulse a few times to combine ingredients.  Add coconut milk liquid to achieve desired consistency.  Pour into ramekins and eat right away, or refrigerate.  The amount of servings you will end up with depends on how much solids and liquids you use.  Expect at least 2.  The pudding can be rich for those without a sweet tooth, so small servings are ideal.  If you don’t like the bits of dates you can strain them out, but I think they add a nice texture and should be left in.  Enjoy!
