Simple Chocolate Pudding (vegan, GF, and food-allergy friendly) -

I love dessert. I come from a long line of dessert lovers. I believe in a little (or not so little) something sweet at the end of the day.

That doesn't mean that my sweet has to be full of junk. No way. This Simple Vegan Chocolate Pudding uses just a few wholesome ingredients and blends up in a jiffy if you already have baked sweet potatoes in your fridge. (Which I almost always do!) This vegan, gluten-free, and food allergy friendly chocolate pudding might even fall into the healthier dessert category. If you don't have a baked sweet potato, you can substitute canned sweet potato or even canned pumpkin for a similar effect -- though it might be a little thinner.

I'm a huge fan of So Delicious coconut milk yogurts. We buy the big containers of vanilla and smaller containers of the other flavors for whenever anyone wants a snack. The vanilla on its own can be a treat, but by adding a little sweet body with the sweet potato and some chocolaty loveliness and warming it all up with a bit of cinnamon, you have a real dessert.

Don't you want some?

Simple Chocolate Pudding (vegan, GF, and food-allergy friendly) -

Simple Vegan Chocolate Pudding (serves 2)


  • 1/2 cup baked sweet potato, skin removed and smashed with a fork
  • 1 cup vanilla non-dairy yogurt (I like the So Delicious coconut milk kind.)
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • pinch of salt


  1. Blend all ingredients.
  2. Pour into dishes and serve.

If you have extra baked sweet potato on hand, you can use it in my Chocolate Shake or Chocolate Sweet Potato Ice Cream.

Happy Cooking!
