Milk Allergic/Sensitive Recipes: Chocolate Pudding

I needed chocolate today and I was all out of dairy-free chocolate chips (and a Whole Foods trip with two babies is beyond my comfort zone), so I modified a recipe for Chocolate Pudding from The Joy of Cooking.  It turned out great!

Chocolate Pudding
  • 2 1 oz squares semisweet Bakers chocolate (dairy free!)
  • 0 to 1/4 cup sugar (depending on how sweet you like chocolate)
  • 2 Cups milk substitute of your choice (I used almond)
  • 3 Tablespoons Corn or Arrowroot Starch
  1. Melt chocolate squares over low heat
  2. Whisk in sugar if using.
  3. Whisk in 1 3/4 cup milk and turn up the heat slightly.
  4. Mix the remaining 1/4 cup milk with 3 Tablespoons corn starch
  5. When the chocolate mixture starts to get hot, add milk/starch mixture.
  6. Stir frequently until the mixture reaches your desired pudding texture.
  7. Pour into cups and chill in the refrigerator.

do you have more milk allergy recipes that you've found and loved? my boyfriend is lactose intolerant, and I will probably be cooking for him in the not-so-distant future. just wondering if you've had any outstanding ones!

If you click the Dairy-Free Recipes Label on the right side all my current recipes will come up. I add about one a week as I experiment or come across something amazing. I made something outstanding (and easy!) tonight besides the pudding that I'll be adding soon.

I have a recipe I used to love, when avocados still loved me back, that was chocolate pudding from avocados! It was fabulous! Mine was from Jessica Seinfeld's book but I've seen some online too.
