Oat Milk Chocolate Pudding Recipe

Oat Milk Chocolate Pudding Recipe – How to make an easy dark and decadent dairy free, gluten free and vegan friendly dessert – with the video tutorial.

Oat Milk Chocolate Pudding

This oat milk chocolate pudding recipe makes a creamy dessert that can be enjoyed as a warming dessert on chilly winter nights, or refrigerated and then enjoyed as a chilled custard like sweet treat.

The recipe is adapted from a New York Times Cooking pudding recipe, I’ve omitted a couple of ingredients and significantly reduced the sugar content. We prefer our desserts dark and indulgent rather than overly sweet.

If you’re a chocolate lover, like me, then this healthy dessert is perfect for special occasions or simply when you’re craving an extra special sweet treat.

Pudding Ingredients

Here are the simple ingredients that you’ll need for the healthy chocolate oat pudding recipe:

Cocoa Powder – you can use unsweetened cocoa powder or raw cacao powder in the dessert for an intense chocolate flavor.

Sugar – you can use caster sugar, brown sugar, stevia, honey or maple syrup, just depends on what you usually enjoy in your diet. You can also use as little or as much as you like, depending on how sweet you usually like your sweet treats to be.

Salt – a pinch of fine sea salt enhances the sweetness and flavors of the pudding.

Cornstarch – corn starch or corn flour is used to help create a thick pudding, while keeping the dessert gluten free.

Oat Milk – using oat milk in dairy free recipes creates a velvety texture, more so than other nondairy milk options, in my experience. Ideally use unsweetened oat milk, so that you can sweeten the dessert to your own personal tastes.

Chocolate – you can use chocolate chips, chocolate bars, bittersweet bar chocolate or any other chocolate you like. I went for dark chocolate chips for a dark, decadent dessert.

If you’re wanting the recipe to be completely a dairy free, vegan pudding just make sure that the chocolate you use is free from dairy.

Flavor – you can flavor the pudding by adding in a half a teaspoon vanilla extract, peppermint extract or even orange or lemon extract.

This healthy chocolate pudding recipe is perfect to satisfy those nighttime chocolate cravings. Infused with bittersweet chocolate, I just can’t get enough of this almost instant pudding delight.
