Author: Nicole at mydeliciousdream.com
Chocolate and raspberry pudding layered with a simple nut crumble. Vegan, gluten-free, grain-free.
Ingredients
Nut Crumble
  • ½ c. almonds
  • 1 c. shredded coconut (unsweetened)
  • ½ c. raisins
  • 1 tsp. cacao powder
  • ½ tsp. vanilla
  • ⅛ tsp. salt
  • ⅓ c. mini chocolate chips (optional)
Chocolate Pudding
  • ½ c. cashews
  • 1 c. water
  • 3 tsp. cacao powder
  • 1 T. xylitol
  • ⅛ tsp. stevia
  • ⅛ tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 T. agave syrup (optional)
Raspberry Pudding
  • 1 can full-fat coconut milk (13.66 oz)
  • 1 T. powdered xylitol
  • 1 c. frozen raspberries
  • 10 drops vanilla
  • ¼ tsp. lemon liquid stevia
  • 1 T. maple syrup (optional)
Instructions
Nut Crumble
  1. Put all ingredients except chocolate chips in a food processor.
  2. Process until well combined and the mixture starts sticking together (should take several minutes).
  3. Add in the mini chips (if desired) and pulse just until mixed.
Chocolate Pudding
  1. Add all ingredients except optional agave syrup in blender.
  2. Blend until smooth.
  3. Pour into a skillet and cook on medium-high heat until bubbly, stirring regularly.
  4. Once it bubbles, turn on low and let thicken, continuing to stir.
  5. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly.
  6. If you feel the mixture needs a little more sweetness, stir in 1 T. of agave or whatever amount you desire.
  7. Allow to fully cool (may want to put it in refrigerator).
Raspberry Pudding
  1. Remove the liquid from the coconut milk and save it for another recipe (it's great in a smoothie!). This works best by putting the can of coconut milk in the refrigerator overnight, but it still may work fine if the can has been stored in a relatively cool place.
  2. Put the "solid" coconut milk in a blender and add the remaining ingredients except for the maple syrup.
  3. Blend until well combined.
  4. If you feel the mixture needs more sweetness, add the maple syrup, or your sweetener of choice (I find the maple syrup adds a nice flavor element as well).
  5. Chill the mixture until you're ready to use it.
Assemble the Parfaits
  1. Use the nut crumble as the base, then layer the chocolate and raspberry however you prefer.
  2. Top with a bit more of the nut crumble, a whole raspberry or two, and a few mini chocolate chips.
