Chocolate Pudding

I had a craving for chocolate pudding. From scratch. Using real food ingredients. That tasted delicious. I made this recipe, waited patiently for it to cool and sighed with delight when I tasted it! It was wonderful and tasted exactly how I hoped it would. SCORE. Now this recipe is mostly dairy free.  I don’t know if you could replace the butter with coconut oil or not, that would be something to experiment with.

You can add whipped cream on top (use coconut cream to make it dairy free), berries, mini chocolate chips, granola, or just eat it!
