This vegan chocolate pudding does not contain much fat. I'm not using any of some of the common ingredients, such as avocado, nuts, tofu, or coconut milk or cream. Instead, this pudding uses white beans to achieve the thick and rich texture of a traditional chocolate pudding. It's cheap, full of fiber, filling, and nearly a guilt-free healthy dessert. And for a bit of extra flavour and intrigue, mint. Inspired by Plant Based 😉


  • 2 cups white beans cooked
  • 2/3 cup apple butter*
  • 3 Tbsp cocoa powder (un sweetened)
  • 1/4 cup plant-based milk such as cashew, almond or rice milk
  • 1/2 tsp peppermint extract
  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup to taste


  1. Add the beans, apple butter, non-dairy milk and mint extract in a high-speed blender and blend thoroughly.
  2. Add the cocoa and maple syrup.
  3. Add more plant milk to reach desired consistency.


I made this in our pressure cooker and the instant pot, and the only ingredient is apples. There are many different ways of making this, and some recipes call for sugar (which does add a great flavour, however we did not want to use it). You can of course also find apple butter in stores, or you could substitute apple sauce, a cored apple, water, and/or maple syrup instead.
