mayan spiced chocolate pudding*


I love chocolate and this recipe is definitely for chocolate lovers.  I follow the recipe from Vegetarian Times exactly as I found it 
here
 I will usually fill a graham cracker crust and make a pie with the filling but i also love making little individual servings in small cups.  Either way, it is delicious and will satisfy any and all chocolate cravings.  I use Trader Joes fair trade dark chocolate bar and they also sell the coconut milk.  I hope you enjoy it as much as i do.

*no animals were harmed making this pudding

  2. Janet,

    You've done it again....
    I love the composition of this image...the green mint leaves and the shiny white plate against the muted backdrop...and chocolate...yummers !

    I would now like to have a "scratch and sniff" computer screen...

  3. Dear Janet, These chocolate pots look blissfully indulgent. And, always, such pretty presentation making the pudding look even more desirable.

  7. Janet - If it's as good as it looks (and I'm sure it is) it must be fabulous! Don't you love Trader Joe's? I have to drive 2 hours to get to one, but it's well worth it! Karin

  15. Dear Ms Janet, I would never have thought about adding chilli but what an excellent idea. I will hold on to this recipe for a bit because I am trying to lose a little weight prior to going home to Australia for Christmas. Your photo is suberb. I think you could make a great Vegan's Year calendar with all your stunning food photos.

  17. I love chocolate and I love spicy food--I've always been intrigued by the idea of combining chocolate with chili. Might have to give this one a try!

    Loved your photo that PVE posted yesterday!!

  18. Looks yummy! I need to make something for my yoga teacher training class Christmas party. Some people are vegan, some vegetarian, so this will be perfect. I think I will make it in the graham cracker crust.

  19. Yum! I think this would be perfect for our Christmas day dessert.
    Have you made yours in drinking glasses?
