Dairy free Chocolate Pudding Recipe with Eggs

I’ve made dairy free chocolate pudding this a few times now. It is pretty simple and sets up pretty fast so there is no need to make it the night before.  I was originally trying to make a chocolate frosting using real melted chocolate chips and what resulted was a really tasty chocolate pudding. The kids loved it.  Last week I used it as a filling in a double layered gluten-free chocolate cake I made using Cherrybrook Kitchen’s box mix.The first time I made dairy free chocolate pudding I used my own homemade powdered sugar (which includes more tapioca flour than the store bought varieties). The second time I made it I tried Trader Joe’s confectioner’s sugar, one of only two brands I’ve ever run across that is not made with corn starch.  In the picture you can see that this batch is thick but a little bit runny. My first batch was very thick and I could turn my spoon over and it would not fall off. It was rich and creamy. So your results may vary, depending on how you like it and what products you use.

Ingredients for Dairy free Chocolate Pudding:

1 cup Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips (the only brand that is soy free)

1 TBSP Spectrum Palm Oil (or margarine if it is okay for you)

2/3 cup of full fat coconut milk (I buy Trader Joe’s Brand).

4 eggs, separated. (I buy pasteurized eggs, as they are added raw and the pudding is not cooked.) For more information on the safety of eating raw eggs, visit: http://www.helium.com/items/181088-is-it-safe-to-eat-raw-eggs

1/3 cup powdered sugar (my homemade version is 1 TBSP tapioca flour to 2 cups of Evaporated Cane Juice. I use a vitamix machine and grind it on high for about 1-2 mins).

Directions for Dairy free Chocolate Pudding:

To make dairy free chocolate pudding, first melt the chocolate chips and palm oil your favorite way. I use the microwave in 1 minute increments. I  stir after each minute until the chips are completely melted. Place the coconut milk and egg yolks in your mixer and blend on high. Slowly add the melted chocolate (be careful not to add it when it is too hot or it will ‘cook’ the eggs!). Continue mixing on high until all is creamy. Finally reduce the speed to medium and add the egg whites. Place in glass bowl with a lid and refrigerate. Pudding should set in 1-2 hours. Serve cold and enjoy. Makes about 6 small servings.

  1. Hi, Caryn,

    Enjoy Life is not the only brand of chocolate chips that is soy-free!
    Please check out: http://www.soyfreesales.com. Our family has tried all of these chips, and Soy Free Sales brands are fresher. Their Economy Chips (completely free of all common allergens) are also cheaper than Enjoy Life. The other soy-free chocolate chips that Soy Free Sales carries are Coffee, Semisweet, White and Milk Chips. The milk chips and white chips are soy-free but have dairy in them. None of their products contain nuts, either.

    Also, most margarines contain soy, unless specified.(refer to your recipe.)

  2. I would like to try your corn free – choc. pudding recipe. Had 2 questions? When do you add the powdered sugar and also can you use cow’s milk if you are allergic to coconut??

    • I add the powdered sugar to the melted chocolate mixture. I think cow’s milk would work just fine but I think I would reduce the amount to make sure that it doesn’t create a runny pudding. The full fat coconut milk is really thick in comparison to milk. You may want to try heavy whipping cream instead, or add more tapioca starch to it. Use really small increments because a little bit goes a long way. I would try 1/2 teaspoon to start with. Let me know how it turns out!

  3. finding good quality soy free chocolate here in Australia has been difficult! It seems like particularly soy is difficult to avoid. I love the Jane Goodall Chocolate bars as well as the economy chocolate chips (a friend recently brought some from the States)! I’m allergic to soy as well as coeliac so will definitely have to try this recipes sometime! Thanks for a great post!
