I have found that sometimes sitting on a fence can get quite comfortable…minutes turn into months…and yup, I am still sitting there!

I got on the fence regarding making a big purchasing decision between: a nut grinding blender or a high powered food processor months ago! And, I am still using my no-name, quirky blender. It was getting the job done just fine, which made me just put off making a decision; but lately, it’s not doing so well with nuts.

So, last Thursday, when I posted this Mystery Ingredient Chocolate Pudding, I sure was hoping y’all would see the “grainy” texture of cashews in that spoonful…

To all of y’all that entertained my need for games and played along – thank you ALL!!! As a kid, my mom fixed me avocado pudding on a regular basis, when I was able to make it for my self I started adding chocolate to it (a few times, I even added protein powder to it and amped it up) – so, all of y’all that guessed avocado – y’all were right about most of the chocolate pudding bowls I make.

But this time, after making this Non Dairy, No Bake, Chocolate Cashew Cake, I figured I would experiment some more with cashew cream, and ooh-la-la – this was one deeelightful bowl of chocolate!

So sorry to have kept y’all waiting so long for this reveal – I attended my very first Food Blogger Conference on Friday and did not pre-plan a post. As for the conference, it was AH-MAZING to meet in person some lovely people who comment on here and who I have interacted with online…and…there was so much delicious food…and…so much information…I don’t think 8 hours have ever gone by as fast for me, as they did on Friday!

Happy, Happy New Week Y’all! And thanks again for playing along!

Omg this looks delicious. Can I ask what is on top in the photos? Is that also a dairy free vegan cream?? Was wondering if maybe it was shipped coconut cream? And if so do you add anything to the coconut cream to sweeten it or just whip it as is? Thanks!!

Thanks so much Kylee! In these photos the white fluffy cream is indeed whipped coconut cream - I did sweeten it with a bit of sugar, but you can use maple syrup if you prefer. My daughter's high school home economics class made this pudding and they served it with tru-whip and that works just as well.
