Vegan Chocolate Coconut Pudding and a Product Review

May 9, 2011

 DSC_0103

Knowing my penchant for coconut oil, the very nice folks at Kelapo sent me a jar of their coconut oil to sample and review. They were kind enough to send a few original recipe cards for inspiration, including a recipe for pie crust and an apple pie smoothie, but in the end I went in a different direction. Chocolate!

First, a few words about Kelapo coconut oil. It is Fair Trade and 100% organic, so very good stuff! And it worked perfectly in this recipe. I’ve seen a fair number of vegan pudding recipes online, but decided to borrow from one I found on The Fitnessista and made a few modifications.

Ingredients: (makes 2 to 4 servings)

1/4 block of plain, firm tofu (feel free to experiment with a softer tofu or even a flavored tofu)

4 tablespoons agave syrup

1/2 cup water

1/4 cup cocoa powder

pinch of salt

1 medium avocado

1 Tablespoon Kelapo coconut oil

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Directions: This one’s a no brainer.

Which I love.

Toss everything into a food processor.

And combine until smooth and creamy.

This pudding is so chocolaty, thick, and rich, it could easily pass for a chocolate mousse.

Top it with a bit of coconut for garnish. (Or chocolate syrup, that’s good too!)

Tuck into the bowl.

And scrape it clean.

Nothing left to see here, folks!

 

A big thank you to Kelapo for the free sample of coconut oil. I truly enjoyed using this product. If you’d like more recipes featuring coconut oil,  check out Kelapo’s recipe page! To learn about the health benefits of cooking with coconut oil, check out the benefits page.

I don’t know if it’s just me or if perhaps everybody else encountering issues with your website. It seems like some of the text in your content are running off the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them as well? This might be a problem with my web browser because I’ve had this happen before. Many thanks

Please let me know if you’re looking for a writer for your blog. You have some really good articles and I believe I would be a good asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d really like to write some material for your blog in exchange for a link back to mine. Please blast me an email if interested. Kudos!

Hello, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your website in Opera, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, superb blog!

Hey there! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog. Is it very difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I’m thinking about setting up my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any tips or suggestions? Thanks

Howdy outstanding blog! Does running a blog like this take a large amount of work? I have no understanding of computer programming however I was hoping to start my own blog in the near future. Anyway, if you have any suggestions or tips for new blog owners please share. I understand this is off topic but I simply had to ask. Appreciate it!

At this time it sounds like Expression Engine is the best blogging platform available right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using on your blog?

Hi this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I was curious if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is required to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% sure. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Kudos

Neat blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere? A theme like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make my blog jump out. Please let me know where you got your design. Thanks a lot

With havin so much written content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright violation? My site has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my permission. Do you know any solutions to help stop content from being stolen? I’d truly appreciate it.
