Carob Pudding (Dairy Free, Refined Sugar Free & Vegan)

My dear friend Amber recently posted a carob recipe on her site which peaked my interest. Amber mentioned that she makes recipes for her kids with carob in place of chocolate frequently to minimize their caffeine consumption (among other reasons.) This got me thinking because well… I love chocolate, my kids love chocolate and my husband most of all. Simply put, I seriously dig chocolate. Have you seen my recipes lately?!

As I continue to find afternoon snacks that both me and my kids will love as well as desserts for after dinner, I decided to try my hand with carob. And oh man, did I hit the jackpot on this one. I did not miss the chocolate at all. And that says a lot coming from me! This treat is delicious, smooth and rocking with antioxidants, fiber and Omega 3’s.

  1. While I’m a chocolate FREAK, I truly do enjoy carob.  Not as an alternative to chocolate, but because I like that nutty flavor.  It’s so unique. Your pudding sounds perfect!

    Hi Laura,
    I’m SO glad you tried carob!  It’s pretty great and such a healthy, satisfying sub for chocolate.  Thanks for the love my friend.  I can’t wait to try your recipe.  🙂

    What a wonderful healthy pudding. I love how easy it is to put together – almost as easy as ‘instant’ pudding!

  4. Great Pudding, Laura, it looks delicious. Thanks you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday and have a great week!
    Come Back Soon!

    I can’t wait to try this recipe. I’m sure I’ve told you that my oldest son can’t have dairy and he misses pudding. I’ve pinned this to try out on him.
