Vegan Vanilla Pudding with Raspberriesjump to recipe
Lovers day is coming up next week and for you snackers out there like myself I threw together something so simple yet delicious you can whip up either for the fam or that special someone. Vegan Vanilla Pudding with Raspberries is super duper easy and a favorite in my house. I love how the tartiness of the raspberries compliments the sweet vanilla.
Typically on V-Day (Valentine’s Day), it’s a chocolate lovers dream, and you know my relationship with chocolate is nothing short of amazeballs heaven. But for this one I wanted to do something a tad different but still totally mouth watering delicious.
Did I make the vanilla pudding from scratch? Nope, I went with the quickest way I knew and used an organic vanilla instant pudding mix. The only thing I do differently is instead of using almond milk, I use full fat coconut milk from the can. By using a hand mixer, it makes the pudding a little thicker and if you discard the water all together you’ll have a vanilla mousse! It’s magical. And on the plus side, if you buy a sugar free pudding, this will be a sugar free snack which just makes it all the better. Low carb and sugar free? Yes please!
My husband and son both love vanilla, I mean I do too but I will always prefer chocolate over it, however this comes in a very close second to ze chocolat’. And if you absolutely hate vanilla and your against it at all costs just use a chocolate pudding mix or make my 2 ingredient vegan chocolate mousse for the special day.
No matter which way you go you will be pleasantly surprised at how just one simple change can make a whole lotta difference to a classic favorite without sacrificing deliciousness. Alternatively you can use almond milk for a more regular pudding consistency.
