A perfect Dairy Free Chocolate Pudding Recipe made with your favorite Milk Alternative. A delicious substitute in all your favorite pudding & pie recipes. Nut Free, Dairy Free & Vegan.




  • 2/3 Cup Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • 6 Tablespoons Corn Starch or Tapioca Starch
  • 1 Cup Sugar
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Salt


  • 4 Cups Milk Alternative like Coconut or Almond Milk (I like it a little bit creamier & substitute 1/2 Cup of the Milk for Full Fat Coconut Cream)
  • 2 Teaspoons Vanilla


  1. In a medium saucepan, whisk together Dry Ingredients until smooth & lump free.
  2. Over Medium Heat, Slowly pour & whisk Milk & Vanilla into the saucepan.
  3. Continue to whisk until pudding is well blended.
  4. Stir pudding constantly as mixture thickens over heat. Scrape the bottom of the pan as you go, so it doesn’t set & burn.
  5. Once pudding begins to break bubbles at the surface (approx. 10 minutes), stir & cook for 1-2 minutes more and remove from heat.
  6. Let pudding set for 1-2 minutes & then pour into you prepared pie shell or cups.
  7. Chill in refrigerator for at least 2-3 hours before serving.


Works perfectly as Pudding Pops, Layered Parfaits & Fruit Dip!
