Raw Chocolate Pudding
This raw chocolate pudding will make your heart skip a beat! I expect that kids will love this recipe too. The great thing about this pudding – besides its immensely rich texture and chocolate flavor – is that it’s naturally sweetened with dates. Of course, you can substitute whatever other natural sweetener you prefer – maple syrup and agave being ideal.
It’s also customizable. If you prefer an intense chocolate flavor, add less sweetener. If you prefer it thinner, thicker just adjust the almond milk as desired. And if you’re like me, you like your pudding on the sweeter side and will prefer adding more!! It’s extremely forgiving and flexible in this way.

- 1/2 cup pitted dates
