Ingredients & Directions

Recipe Ingredients


Yield: 1 Chili Chocolate Pudding (4 Servings)
Needed Kitchenware: 1 quart-sized bowl, microwavable bowl or small sauce pan, plastic wrap or clingfilm, blender, food processor
  • 150 g unsalted cashews, soaked in water overnight or soaked 30 minutes in boiled water
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup plantbased milk
  • ¼ cup agave or maple syrup
  • 200 g vegan dark chocolate, melted slowly
  • (optional) 40 ml brandy
  • ½ tsp chili powder
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp ginger, ground
  • Pinch of pink/sea salt
  • 100 g vegan biscuits
  • 2 tbsp coconot oil, melted
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp agave or maple syrup
  • 50 g vegan white chocolate
  • (optional) raspberry for garnish
  • (optional) holly leaves for garnish
Recipe Directions


  • Drain the soaked cashews into a blender and add the milk, vanilla, lemon juice and syrup. Blend until you have no lumps. This can take a few minutes depending on your blender. Melt the chocolate in a bain marie, or gently in the microwave, and add to the blender. Add the brandy to the blender and blend for a minute. Give the blender cup a shake (or wipe down the sides) and add the chili, ginger, salt, and cinnamon. Blend again until all the ingredients are combined. Line your bowl that you will use to mold the dessert with clingfilm, about 1 quart in size. Pour in the mix and gently shake/tap the sides to remove any air bubbles. Place in the freezer for at least 3 hours. I left mine overnight. You need it to be semi frozen to add the base.
  • Blend the biscuits into crumbs in a food processor. Then add the oil, syrup, and vanilla. Blend again until all ingredients are combined. Remove the pudding from the freezer and cover the bottom with the crumb mix and press down firmly to create a base. Place the pudding back in the freezer for an hour to set. This will help it come away from the bowl. To serve, place a plate over the bowl and turn both upside down. Tap the sides and shake until the pudding comes free from the bowl. Remove the plastic wrap or clingfilm.
  • To get the dripping cream topping, melt the white chocolate and let it sit for a minute to cool. Make sure the pudding is still slightly frozen as it will set the chocolate as it pours down the sides. Mix the chocolate and pour into the centre. Do this slowly or it can look messy. Using the back of a spoon move the chocolate to the sides so it runs down slowly. Allow the chocolate to set and the pudding to fully defrost for 20 minutes at room temperature. Decorate with holly and red berries.
