        Chocolate Pudding, Pops, or Pie

        Prep time    5 minutes  

        Cook time   0 minutes    

        Yield               4-6 servings    

        🌱 Ingredients

        • 2 cups mashed sweet potatoes
        • 1/2 cup pitted dates, soaked (about 8-10)
        • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
        • 1/2-3/4 cup plant-based milk
        • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
        • pinch sea salt (optional)
        • 1/2 cup melted vegan chocolate chips (for the pie only)

        👩‍🍳 Directions

          1. Place the sweet potatoes, soaked and drained dates, cocoa powder, milk, vanilla, and sea salt to a blender or food processor and blend on high until very smooth. If necessary, you can add a little more milk if you are having trouble blending the mixture. It may take a while, and you may need to periodically stop and start your blender or processor to help it along with a spatula. The final product should be smooth and creamy.  
          2. Pudding Pops: Place the mixture into popsicle molds and freeze 6-8 hours. To remove the popsicles from the molds, briefly run warm water over the molds for 15-20 seconds to defrost and loosen.
          3. Pudding: Transfer the pudding to a bowl and serve topped with your choice of fruit, unsweetened coconut flakes, chocolate shavings, and/or chopped nuts.
          4. Chocolate Pie:  Turn this pudding into a chocolate pie by adding 1/2 cup of melted vegan chocolate chips to the blender.  This will help the pie set properly. Use the crust recipe from the Key Lime Pie.  Refrigerate for 2-3 hours and serve.
