Paleo {Sugar Free} Vegan Caramel Pudding

Oh, no. This looks so good it could be positively dangerous. Except it's refined sugar free, raw, paleo, gluten-free, vegan and almost "good" for you. Gluten-free Vegan Love just made a few more fans with this amazing recipe (although I definitely was already a fan!).

Paleo and Raw Vegan Caramel Pudding
Prep time
Ready In
Makes: about 1 cup pudding {1-2 servings}
  • 1 young thai coconut {the white kind, not the mature brown ones}
  • 10 soft medjool dates
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup {or liquid sweetener of your choice}
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract {or better yet, a tiny pinch of raw ground vanilla bean} {use alcohol free vanilla extract for AIP}
  • dash of salt
  • Optional: 1 tbsp coconut oil, softened {for a firmer pudding once chilled}
  1. Carefully remove the top of the coconut. {Watch this video on how to do it, if you haven't done it before}. Pour coconut water off into a glass or storage container -- most of it will be reserved for other uses {it's delicious in smoothies or other cooking and baking}.
  2. Scrape out the flesh of the coconut into your blender {I used my Vitamix for this}. Add in 3 tbsp of the coconut water you've just set aside and all remaining ingredients. Blend until mixture is smooth. Adjust sweetness as needed. Transfer into a glass storage container or serving bowls -- enjoy it fresh or place in the freezer for at least an hour for a firmer pudding {note: it will not freeze into solid form no matter how long it's frozen for -- it will only gelatinize and get even more pudding-like and delicious!}.
