Chocolate Cashew Pudding

This Dairy Free Chocolate Cashew Pudding is a favorite in our home. It involves no baking or cooking and I’m hoping it will become a favorite in your home as well!

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!

Delicious Dairy Free Chocolate Cashew Pudding


Friday 25th of June 2021

Hello, My son and his wife just forgot and left an unopened half gallon of Unsweet Cashewmilk, and I am on the lookout for recipes to use it in. Can I use it in your chocolate pudding recipe, instead of the cashews and almond milk, and if so, how much! Thank you! I would love ideas for conversion amounts in other recipes as well, please!

Hi Loralee - yes, you can use it in my recipe instead of the almond milk - but this recipe still needs soaked cashews. The soaked cashews are blended in the rest of the ingredients to give this pudding a creamy consistency. My apologies for the late reply.
