Prune Dark Chocolate Almond Pudding (Vegan + GF)

Prune Dark Chocolate Almond Pudding (Vegan + GF)

Inspired by my Pear Dark Chocolate Pudding, this Prune Dark Chocolate Almond Pudding is also gluten-free, grain-free and vegan, and is even quicker and easier to make!

All you need is one bowl and 9 simple ingredients, and everything will come together in just over half an hour. 

Prunes and chocolate may seem like a strange combination, but the natural sweetness of the prunes and the slightly bitter dark chocolate is a truly winning combination. 

I got the idea to soak prunes in almond liqueur because of the Japanese alcoholic drink umeshu which is made by soaking unripe plums in alcohol and sugar.

This pudding consists of a rich and fudgy almond base topped with boozy Amaretto-soaked prunes and little pockets of rich dark chocolate, all finished off with some crispy, toasty flaked almonds!

This Prune Dark Chocolate Almond Pudding is also relatively healthy as it’s low in sugar: the only sugar it contains is what’s naturally found in the prunes, a little in the dark chocolate and a tiny bit of maple syrup in the pudding itself.

I love to serve this warm from the oven with a scoop of (dairy-free) vanilla or chocolate ice cream
