This Chocolate Pudding is the perfect Vegan dessert.

When it comes to vegan desserts, there’s nothing quite like a creamy and decadent chocolate Pudding. This recipe is not only delicious, it’s also incredibly easy to make. All you need are a few pantry ingredients and a blender. Simply blend together the Chickpeas, good quality eating chocolate or vegan  chocolate,  and a few other ingredients, and then allow the mixture to set in the freezer and fridge. The result is a smooth and velvety Pudding that will satisfy any sweet tooth.

The secret ingredient: Chickpeas

You might be wondering how Chickpeas can possibly be the star of a chocolate Pudding. Well, let me tell you,  they are the secret ingredient that gives this dessert its amazing texture and body. Chickpeas are not only an amazing source of protein and fiber,  but they also have a neutral flavor that allows the chocolate to shine. When blended together, the Chickpeas create a smooth and creamy base for the Pudding that is simply irresistible.

Tips for serving

Once your vegan chocolate Pudding is ready,  it’s time to serve and enjoy! The Pudding needs to be kept in the refrigerator, so it’s best to serve it chilled. You can simply spoon the Pudding into individual bowls or glasses for a beautiful presentation.  If you’re making this dessert for a potluck or gathering, it’s a good idea to have an ice pack ready to keep the Pudding cool during transportation.

Alternatively, you can make the Pudding in tiny disposable dessert cups that are readily available these days. This way you can easily transport the individual servings without worrying about spiller messes.

I recommend using a silicone mould to set the Pudding. This will allow you to create elegant and professional looking shapes, that can be easily demolded into serving plates. If you don’t have a silicone mold, don’t worry! You can still enjoy the deliciousness of this Vegan Chocolate Pudding by serving it in scoops from a glass bowl.

In conclusion,  this homemade vegan chocolate Pudding is the perfect dessert for any occasion.  With its creamy texture and rich chocolate flavour, it’s sure to impress both vegans and non vegans alike. The addition of Chickpeas gives the Pudding a unique and delightful twist, making it a dessert that stands out from the crowd.
