Choco-Peanut Butter Banana Puddings! (No cook + vegan!)

These were kind of made by fluke. We originally set out to make whipped coconut cream that was sturdy enough to stand on its own. But since we didn't have an electric beater, I beat it by hand with a whisk. It worked! We didn't have the stiff peaks we wanted, but the billowy cream was perfect for puddings!

We were melting chocolate for delicious (and vegan!) Black Forest tarts (recipe posted soon). So we added that in along with some coconut sugar and peanut butter and presto - pudding!

1 can full fat coconut milk, whipped with whisk to best of ability
3 tbsp coconut sugar
1/4 cup natural peanut butter
1/4 cup melted semi-sweet chocolate
Dash of vanilla
Dash of salt
Bananas and chocolate chips for decoration

Whip coconut milk (we used Thai Kitchen and believe it to be the best brand to use to make whipped cream, all the others seemed a little pulpy). Take out 4 ramekins or small containers. Fill each to the rim with pudding mixture. Place in fridge to cool and set (overnight preferably but a few hours would do fine too.) We decorated ours to look like mice (originally they were supposed to be bears but just ended up looking more mousy, we added tails made out of chocolate chips and peanuts!)


 






These would be perfect for kids, not that we're saying adults can't eat these too, I mean who doesn't love adorable puddings.

  1. This looks luscious! And those teddy bear faces are adorable. I'd say they're too cute to eat but that would be a lie ;)

  2. I agree with Emma - they still look like teddy bears! So cute! Delicious ones, too. I have used a different ratio of coconut milk/chocolate/peanut butter for a great no-bake pie filling, so I know this must be delicious, too. :)

  3. This looks delicious! I've been really into mixing stuff like bananas, pumpkin, yogurt, peanut butter, and chocolate protein powder together, which makes a pudding consistency. But, I love coconut so will have to pick up a can on my next grocery shop and give this a try.
    Love all your recipes by the way.
    Great site :)

    1. protein powder is a favourite pudding addition for us too! You should def try coconut milk, If you mix coconut milk, cocoa powder and stevia and put it in the fridge, it will set up like a chocolate mousse, so good! :)
