Chocolate pudding with antioxidants is the best!

This delicious chocolate pudding recipe contains superfoods like dark chocolate and coconut milk, which are chock-full of antioxidants that help to prevent cellular damage. Pudding recipes are often considered painstaking and difficult to make. This is why so many pudding lovers turn to the instant boxed variety when they get a taste for the creamy taste of chocolate pudding. Unfortunately, the instant boxed ingredients are not a healthy option. Not to mention the end product has a chemical taste that is not even close to the rich, creamy taste of this pudding. Looking for awesome desserts for your family? This chocolate pudding recipe is a hit with people of all ages.

We love the idea of healthy desserts because they allow you to satisfy your sweet tooth without the fat and calories found in traditional recipes. There are plenty of ways you can clean up your favorite dessert options and never again feel as if being healthy means feeling deprived. As a matter of fact, the best way to lead a healthy life is to adjust your favorite things so they fit your new lifestyle. Giving up things you love rarely works, but adjusting the recipes so they are clean and healthy allows you to enjoy your favorite foods without the risk.

  1. My family doesn't like the coconut flavor AT ALL. Do you think almond milk would work instead?

  2. Janice, Not sure…but if you use almond milk, make sure it isn't the fat free version or it won't thicken up. Keep us posted!

    1. Shelley, I've never tried it with other milks but it should work as long as there is some fat content for thickening.

  3. We made this yesterday with almond milk (vanilla unsweetened) instead of the canned coconut milk. It was fantastic! Good recipe!

  4. Made this today. Used canned lite coconut milk and almond milk instead of the 2%. It was delicious! I didn't notice a strong coconut flavor at all. Will definitely be making this instead of the boxed mix from now on!

    1. Sure, but you would need to add another unrefined sweetener…maybe coconut palm sugar.

  5. can you make it with unsweetened cocoa powder instead of the chocolate chips? what would be the amount to use if so? thx
