Easy vanilla pudding

September 29, 2013

Lately I have been eating a lot of pudding/ice cream/yogurt type desserts at night, and after a month of consuming a chockful of cow dairy in the evenings, I wanted to find something healthier.

I found my inspiration this time from a guy named Rojo, who is a member of the Marks Daily Apple forums. He mentioned that he adds a bunch of stuff with coconut milk and some gelatin in a blender, and without even heating the mixture, is able to take out a decent solidified pudding from the refrigerator after a few hours. I had to try this myself.


Without a hitch, this recipe turned out great for me. Because I am sensitive to sweet tasting foods and because coconut has its own sweet flavor, I added only a bit of honey to some coconut milk and gelatin, along with some vanilla. The process was very easy, and wasn’t too time consuming, unless the wait time for the pudding to solidify is taken into consideration. For a smoother texture than that of the picture below, the coconut milk can be heated slightly, without fully boiling, before adding to the blender.


Rojo himself adds some cocoa powder, cinnamon, and molasses to the coconut milk and gelatin. I would imagine that there are many other combinations that one could experiment with in the interest of his or her own taste. I like to strictly stick to vanilla for this one.

1 can coconut milk (heated, for smoother texture)
2 Tbsp gelatin (or 1 sleeve)
1 tsp vanilla
2 Tbsp honey, or to taste

(1) Add all ingredients to a blender and blend for 30 seconds.
(2) Transfer the mixture to a few ramekins or a large container and chill in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours.
(3) Consume with zest! (literally or figuratively works)
