If you’re aware of or have made my 4-Ingredient Raw Chocolate Mousse, you already know where I’m going with this.


^I’ve never been one to keep secrets.

6-Ingredient Vegan Chocolate Pudding made with avocado and beets Paleo and dairy free!

That’s right, I’m bringing forth a very similar recipe to the chocolate mousse (which is still one of the most visited recipes on this site) I posted a couple years ago, but throwing in some roasted beets and calling it pudding. If you enjoy both beets and chocolate, I highly recommend you try this out!

Flavor-wise, this pudding is very rich and chocolaty with a (detectable) earthy beet undertone. You can definitely taste the beet, but for me, beets enhance chocolate desserts with a very pleasant je ne sais quois. If you’ve tried my Fudgy Paleo Beetroot Brownies, Chocolate Beet Cake, or Chocolate Beet Muffins, you’re probably already familiar with that unique flavor. It’s difficult to describe! Not so difficult to consume.

Texture-wise, we’re talking silky-smooth, melt-on-your-tongue delight. Of course this won’t have the same texture as a pudding made with dairy and tempered egg yolks, but to me, the big flavor and smooth texture make this pudding completely addictive.

Because I cook so frequently and have a lot of food to get through each week, whenever I make chocolate mousse or pudding, I store any leftovers in a jar in the freezer. You know what happens at that point? It legit becomes ice cream, I shit you not. Which reminds me…if you’re craving a great dairy-free no-churn chocolate ice cream recipe, here she blows! Red Velvet supreme? YAS! Srsly though, you can go at it with or without beets.

Serve this pudding with a dollop of Coconut Whipped Cream, and/or chocolate shavings….and/or edible flowers if that’s your jam 😉

Vegan Beet Chocolate Pudding made with only a few whole food ingredients - paleo-friendly, dairy-free, and naturally sweetened!

    These look delicious! – Where’s the chocolate in the recipe, though? – Am I missing something? 🙂

      Ohhhhh Mark…how embarrassing! I left the cacao powder out by accident! Thanks so much for bringing that to my attention.. Recipe’s fixed now! xo

      Hi Pat, you can store the leftovers in a sealed container for up to 5 days. You can also freeze it! I put it in a jar, seal it up, and stick it in the freezer. If you thaw it for 10 or so minutes, it will have ice cream-like consistency, or you can thaw it longer for pudding consistency. Hope you enjoy!

      Heck yeah!! I always love those wins…chocolate is one of my favorite foods on earth, so any time a healthier chocolate dessert recipe turns out well, I’m pretty high on life 😉

      I’m happy to hear you like the original version, Judee!! I’d say if you like beets, it’s definitely worth trying out version 2.0! You could always start with a very small amount of roasted beet and then go from there 😉 xo

    Okay. I have been plant based for almost 4 years. This is disgusting. Next time I will try it with sweet potato instead of beet and will use dates instead of so much maple syrup. The texture I wil say is amazing but the flavor bitter.and I drink butter Americanos so I like bitter. But this….thumbs down on taste. Thumbs up on texture.

    Okay to be fair….I sliced up banana and ate all the pudding…lol much better chilled with slices of banana. Thumbs up?
