Raise your hand if you’re a sweetetarian? I am! I love sweets, and anything made with chocolate is my favorite – especially this Gluten-Free Vegan Mexican Chocolate Pudding. It’s a gluten-free pudding recipe with a bit of a kick to it.
Don’t be afraid of the spices in this smooth, creamy, gluten-free chocolate pudding. You can leave them out if you’d like, but I recommend adding them in. It really brings this gluten-free pudding to a whole new level. And it’s not spicy, the spices enhance the other flavors, similar to how coffee enhances the cocoa in chocolate cake.
This Gluten-Free Vegan Mexican Chocolate Pudding is meant to be served chilled, but it’s also tasty warm served over chocolate cake. Please don’t ask me how I know that (wink).
I love adding a dollop of dairy-free whipped cream and some raspberries to the top. A sprinkle of a cinnamon gives this pudding the perfect finish. My whole family loves this Gluten-Free Vegan Mexican Chocolate Pudding, and you’ll love it too. Especially when you see how simple it is to make.
Once I learned how easy it was to make gluten-free pudding I stopped buying store-bought pudding. There are only a few simple ingredients in this recipe and it’s so easy to make that my kids sometimes whip up a batch.
This Gluten-Free Mexican Chocolate Pudding falls into what I call the three s’s. Simple, Stunning, and Satisfying. It’s really all of those three, and a lot more.
