Vegan Chocolate Pudding (soy-free, nut-free)


I had every intention of coming up with a bunch of Valentine’s Day recipes for you, but wouldn’t you know it, the big day is next week and I’m just getting my head into the Valentine’s Day dairy-free recipes zone.

Since getting back from New York last week, I’ve been in a frenzy to finish the last half of the recipes for my cookbook.

Yes, a Healthful Pursuit cookbook! And it’s not just any cookbook… it’s a grain-free, vegan dessert e-cookbook loaded with healthy dessert recipes and grain-free concepts that you’ve never seen on the blog, or anywhere for that matter. It has limited nut recipes, everything is soy-free, refined sugar-free… it’s going to be crazy good.

Stay tuned for more information in the weeks to come…

But for now, let’s eat dairy-free pudding, shall we?

A dairy-free pudding with just 5 ingredients. Velvety smooth, rich, and only 200 calories per serving. You wont believe that it's made with beans!
  1. Place beans and milk in the bowl of your food processor or blender and puree until ultra smooth, about 2 minutes. Set aside.
  2. Place chocolate, coconut sugar and salt in the bowl of your double boiler. If you don't have a double boiler, just place in a metal or glass dish over a boiling pot of water. Allow chocolate to melt, about 5 minutes.
  3. Remove chocolate from the heat and stir in navy bean mixture. Continue to whisk for 2-3 minutes.
  4. Pour into 4 cups, glasses or jars and serve immediately or cover with plastic wrap and cool in the fridge for a couple of hours. Will keep for 3 days in the fridge.

Don’t worry… I wouldn’t have put beans in here if I felt it really didn’t work in this recipe. Navy beans are especially silky and smooth, perfect for this pudding!

Just look at that pour shot. Nothing but velvety goodness here, friends.

Once the chocolate is melted with the sugar, add your “cream” and whisk!


Pour into random cups, jars, or tealight holders. I LOVE these for desserts – they’re cheaper than glasses and they’re a perfect portion size.

You can either eat the pudding warm if you’re into that kinda thing, or cover with plastic wrap and chill in the fridge. Best part is, this pudding doesn’t develop pudding skin. Yay!

  1. Going to try this tonight! I don’t have coconut s today but will try honey or regular sugar. Have you tried to make vanilla pudding this way? I was hoping to try that some time (trying to sneak some beans into my five year old, and would love to without the chocolate) :-)

  2. Hi Leanne, this looks sodelicious but may i ask some advice please? Would the navy beans likely not come out so velvety smooth if I used a normal food processor? I made your choc fudge drops the other day and they tasted divine but looked more grainy than yours did. I can’t afford a vitamix and don’t think I will ever be able to lol, is there anything you can recommend, should I invest in a cheaper blender/smoothie maker (are they the same thing?) or will it not be worth it as a cheaper blender may only do as good a job as my kenwood food processor.. hope that makes sense. Thankyou :)

  3. Had something similar made by a restaurant during an all vegan 21-day cleanse
    So yummy! But wondering if there is a way to do this w/ organic cocoa instead of the non-dairy chocolate? Can’t find it around here. Thanks!

  4. Wow, those navy beans look amazing smooth – not quite what I imagined when i saw the picture for a chocolate dessert – I will have to try this recipe it sounds delicious!

    • They are pretty darn smooth (and ultra delicious!) I’d love to know how you like the recipe when you give it a try, Julie :)

  5. This looks fantastic…like all your other recipes. I was looking for a chocolate ice cream recipe and thought this might work if I put it in the ice cream maker. What do you think ?

    • That’s a great idea, Elaine. I’ve wanted to add it to the ice cream maker a couple of times… but we eat the batch before we get a chance to. If you give it a shot, be sure to let me know!

      • Made the recipe !! Ate it all, not in one sitting ! Awesome. thank you Leanne. Every one of your recipes has been awesome!

        • Woohoo! I’m so happy that you liked it, Elaine :)

  6. This recipe was an instant success in my house. My son asks for it EVERY DAY lol. I love making it for him because he enjoys it so much and I know it’s full of wonderful stuff for his growing little body. Thank you!

    • Thanks Ruxandra. I don’t believe you’ve been here before, welcome!
