I remember a time when enjoying pudding meant pulling a plastic lid off of a plastic container, licking the lid, then devouring the pudding inside the plastic cup.
Not a care in the world, and certainly no concern about the ingredients.
Only 100 calories?
I’ll take two.

I challenge you to tell me what half of that stuff is.
So I made pudding. Well, it actually was supposed to be a filling for my grain-free, no bake pie crust, but it was not firm enough for that. So I now call it pudding!
- 1 can coconut milk (13.5 oz)
- 1/2 cup brewed coffee (cold)
- 1/4 cup raw honey
- 1/3 cup cocao powder
- 1/4 cup tapioca flour
- 2 tsp vanilla
- pinch of salt
- Heat coconut milk and coffee over medium heat until combined.
- Add honey and stir.
- Whisk in cocao powder and tapioca flour until blended and smooth.
- Stir in vanilla and salt and continue to stir for 1-2 minutes.
- Remove from heat and pour into individual containers (makes about 4-5 small servings).
- Let cool on counter, cover and chill until ready to serve. If you put it in the fridge immediately it may form a gross film on top that you will want to remove before eating.
It was bit less thick than regular pudding but my son and I really enjoyed it!
