I pride myself of fulfilling my community’s need for vegan versions of their favourite foods from before they were vegan! And of the store-bought vegan puddings I’ve tried over the years, nothing really compares to homemade chocolate pudding. If you’ve found yourself missing classic chocolate pudding, this one is for you.

I'm going to show you how to make my easy vegan chocolate pudding! This nostalgic pudding dessert recipe can be eaten on its own or with a dollop of whipped topping.
Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: Vegan
Serves: 4 servings
  1. Add sugar, cocoa, cornstarch, and salt to a saucepan and whisk in soy milk and instant coffee.
  2. Bring to a boil, over medium heat, stirring constantly until the mixture thickens.
  3. Remove from heat and stir in butter and vanilla. Allow to cool for 10 minutes.
  4. Transfer to a container and place a piece of plastic wrap directly on top of the surface of the pudding (to prevent skin from forming) and allow to cool at room temperature. Then transfer to the fridge to chill.
  5. Serve cold.
If you don't have instant coffee leave it out! it just enhances the flavour of the chocolate.

  • I made this with canned coconut milk instead of soy milk and cacao instead of cocoa powder. It came out so good! Very easy recipe! ❤️❤️

  • Nostalgia level 10000000000. Love this. Super easy and super delicious. Thanks for this recipe. Now what other flavours can I make…

  • Had some leftover instant coffee from camping and used it to make a batch of these. So good! Highly recommend having for a dessert after dinner! Family really likes it!

  • Matthew says:

    This is a nostalgic recipe omg my entire childhood was a chocolate pudding event. Thank you so much! I can’t eat dairy anymore so this is perfect

  • Conrad Will says:

    Hi! Thank you Candice for this recipe. Just wanna say, if you guys don’t have cornstarch, you can substitute it with tapioca starch! It works really well for me.

  • Eager to slap this together! I wouldn’t have thought of the softened butter, and while it’s not exactly nutritionally ideal, I’ll be employing that especially for guests and stuff! I never keep instant coffee, and what I’ve been doing for recipes calling for some (also recently made a tweaked version of a Pick Up Limes banana-coffee muffin recipe that called for it, plus there are cakes…), is using the splash of cold stale strong coffee in the bottom of my coffee pot. Because there’s always a dreg left every day (is that a word?), before we wash the coffee maker at night! We are kind of coffee snobs, we make it strong, use good coffee – it doesn’t smell stale and so I use it (like a few Tbsps – 1/4 c depending on the recipe). It’s been FINE! Just a tip for anyone else who is like me, and would rather not have to keep a stash of crappy instant coffee on hand for rando baking endeavors, and who already drinks fresh-brewed coffee daily…
