Ingredients (For 3 servings)

  • 2 cups milk of choice OR canned coconut milk
  • Heaping 1/8 tablespoon salt
  • 1/4 cup Dutch cocoa powder
  • Uncut stevia to taste OR 1/3 cup sugar, pure maple syrup, or honey
  • 1/2 cup milk of choice + 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • Optional 3.5 oz chocolate chips or broken-up bar
  • 3/4 tablespoon pure vanilla extract


(Preparation time: 5 mins; cooking time: 10 mins)


Heat the 2 cups milk of choice in a saucepan with the salt, cocoa powder, and sweetener.


Meanwhile, whisk the cornstarch and 1/2 cup milk in a small bowl until dissolved. When the 2 cups milk is warm, add the cornstarch mixture and bring to a boil.


Once boiling, stir constantly for 2 minutes. Lower to a simmer for an additional minute, then turn off the heat.


Once the heat is off, stir in the vanilla and broken-up chocolate pieces until the chocolate melts. Transfer the pudding to the refrigerator to thicken.
