low-glycemic vegan treat
1 cup powdered coconut milk
1 cup powdered date, maple, or coconut sugar
1 cup organic cornstartch
1/2 cup cacao powder
1 teaspoon vanilla bean powder
1 3/4 cups almond milk (or more depending on how much pudding you will make)
1 banana - optional
In a large mixing bowl blend all the dry ingredients together. Seal and save for later or to give as gifts.
To make the pudding, add 1 3/4 cups almond milk + 1 cup of the dry Cacao Pudding mix to a a pot. Whisk to blend while bringing the mixture to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and stir constantly for about 5 minutes, or until it is the consistency of mousse or pudding, whichever you prefer.
If you want, slice one banana and add slices to the bottom of each small serving bowl, pour your pudding on top, then add banana slices to the top of each serving. Let rest 5-10 minutes or place in the fridge and let cool completely.
Pictured below is my holiday gift version of this recipe, Reindeer Mousse Pudding. I bought little red noses, eyes and pipe cleaners at the crafts store and used a hot glue gun to add in the faces. The pipe cleaners are twisted around the top with smaller pieces twisted into each antler.
