Do you know one of the foods I have most missed by removing milks and sugars from my diet? Chocolate. Chocolate in all forms. Chocolate in all flavors. But mostly in the silky smooth form of pudding and mousse. I ADORE silky smooth chocolate and milk smooshed into one big giant bowl of deliciousness!

Do you know what I have found as a fantastic substitute for my favorite chocolate mousse recipe?
Let me tell you!! (I am uber excited about this one for you guys!)
(insert clapping hands and jumping up and down motions!)
Chocolate pudding made with coconut cream! As in... no dairy! Score. Swoosh. Bam.
Okay, I can tell you aren't quite as excited as I am. But that's simply because you still don't understand the beauty of this treat. It's only 4 ingredients, 5 minutes, and DONE. No milk, no sugar, no eggs, no wheat...only creamy chocolatey goodness.
Yes, it's too good to be true. Yes, I'm pulling your leg. Yes, I'm a liar.
But not in this!! I would NEVER lie about smooth and sweet chocolate pudding. NEVER EVER.
Give it a try, won't you. And let me know if it has made your day. And year. And all the years to come!
You can often find [easyazon_link identifier="B00R61K7FO" locale="US"]coconut cream[/easyazon_link] near the coconut milk at your local grocery. It should even be in a similar can.

- ½ teaspoon vanilla bean paste OR 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

You can use coconut MILK. It does work just fine but the coconut cream has a cleaner, sweeter flavor.
