Homemade Chocolate Pudding with orange and coconut whipped cream

This is my first time ever participating in Virtual Vegan Potluck.  Everyone brings a virtual dish to the potluck ranging from entrees to desserts and you can use the buttons at the bottom of this post to navigate your way through the whole potluck.

Sounds like fun?

Before we start – let me introduce myself.  My name is Katherine and I blog at Green Thickies.  A Green Thickie is a meal replacement green smoothie.  If you’re interested in learning more about Green Thickies – click here to learn more.

The dish I have chosen to bring to the potluck is Homemade Chocolate Pudding with orange and topped with whipped coconut cream.  Yum!

The best thing about this homemade chocolate pudding is that it’s healthy – so you don’t have to worry about overindulging.  It is free from refined sugar, dairy and made with whole natural ingredients.

Another bonus about this chocolate orange pudding is that it only takes 5 minutes!  What more could you want when the chocolate cravings strike?

This gorgeous dessert can easily be made with store cupboard ingredients and an orange – so you can whip it up without any extra trips to the store or trying to find special ingredients.

I have recently got myself a magic bullet – which is just perfect for making this chocolate pudding.  It comes with so many attachments that you don’t even have to wash out your containers – just use one container and blade to make the chocolate pudding and another container and blade to make the whipped coconut cream.

If you don’t have a magic bullet you can use either a normal blender, food processormixer or electric whisk.  (affiliate links)  At a push you could even use a hand whisk or a fork – but it might not be quite as smooth.

  2. I adore the chocolate and orange combination! This looks divine!

  3. Yes yes yes! i am making these this week- thank you so much for sharing xx

  4. Oh my goodness. This looks so good! Especially with that coconut cream on top. I love that this pudding is made with bananas as the base, too—and I bet the orange and chocolate together keep it from tasting too overwhelmingly banana-y. Great recipe!

  5. I especially love the preponderance of cream on top! So beautiful. Glad to have you along for this Potluck, Katherine!

  6. This sounds great, I love the combination of flavours. I just recently made brownies with chocolate and orange :)

  7. This looks so good. The combination of orange, chocolate and coconut cream – yummm!

  8. Wow! This looks amazingly delicious! I like that you sweetened it with maple syrup and fruit, too. Thank you for such a lovely and tasty recipe!

  9. This is so unique and I can’t wait to make it!

  10. Oh this looks so delicious! Chocolate and orange are one of my favourite combinations. Definitely tagging this for later!
