There’s a lot to love about this simple yet satisfying dessert. Chocolate-lovers can get their fix without filling up on refined sugar, and also get the added benefits of fruit, protein and healthy fats. EDENSOY carob and vanilla soymilk and blended organic almonds lend themselves as a base, making for a thick and silky texture without any added fillers that often come with conventional pudding mixes. As a snack or dessert, this pudding makes a sweet and nourishing treat.
- 2 c EDENSOY Carob
- 2 c EDENSOY Vanilla
- 1/2 c organic almonds, blanched 1 minute in boiling water, remove skins, discard water
- 1/3 c EDEN Kuzu Root Starch, dissolved in 6 Tbsp. cold water
- 1 Tbsp organic maple syrup
- 2 c fresh strawberries, sliced
- 2 Tbsp organic maple syrup, or to taste
Place almonds, EDENSOY Vanilla and 1 tablespoon maple syrup in a blender and puree. Place mixture in a sauce pan. Add the kuzu to the soy milk mixture. Place over a medium flame, stirring constantly until the mixture becomes thick. Pour into individual dessert cups and refrigerate until cool.
To prepare the topping, puree half of the strawberries with 2 tablespoons maple syrup. Mix the other half of the strawberries in with the pureed berries. Spoon the topping over the pudding just before serving.
Note: 1 tablespoon of almond butter can be substituted for blanched almonds.
