Raw Strawberry Cocoa Pudding

Raw Strawberry Cocoa Pudding

Summer means strawberries.  Fresh strawberries.  Warm, sun-kissed strawberries from Papa’s garden.  Strawberry shortcake on a hot summer night.  Strawberry jam spread on biscuits.  Strawberry and spinach salads. Strawberry juices running down my chin.

While looking for a way to satisfy my sweet tooth, and to use a gorgeous pint of strawberries, I made a raw strawberry cocoa puree that reminded me of pudding.  Dairy free, the creaminess comes from cashews.  Sugar free, the sweetness comes from dates and the berries themselves.

It makes a delicious high-protein afternoon snack, a dessert, or dare I say breakfast?

    Oh Heather,

    This is am amazing recipe. I love it! Just wonderful ingredients. Well done! I have all these ingredients on hand, and my local Coop sells cacao nips in bulk (yeah).

    I would have to say my favorite way to enjoy strawberries: raw. Raw on top of strawberry shortcake, in a smoothie, dipped in chocolate coconut whipped cream, etc. And I love all the summer fruits (no favorite). :-)

    Thanks for a great recipe!


  2. Love this one, Heather! I know it has to be fantastic! :-)


  3. So many ingredients that I love! Looks delish, Heather. :)

  4. My favorite summer fruit is definitely strawberries and we just posted a strawberry shortcake recipe that we lovvvve. I’ve made a version of this pudding before without the chocolate. It was amazing. I can’t wait to try it with cocoa!

    Yum!! In summer time all I seem to want is cool, smooth textured foods. I made something similar recently but without fresh fruits, just figs- the strawberry seems like it would make it far more refreshing. What simple ingredients you have here! I will absolutely check this one out.

  12. This sounds heavenly! What a beautiful treat for a summer day – and I definitely agree on the possible breakfast idea :) Lovely photos as well!

  13. I thought I had left a message about this earlier! Thank you so much for entering this month’s Ingredient Challenge Monday. I had to go hunt down some coconibs so I could make your pudding and am so excited to give it a try this weekend.

    Thanks again,

A Curious Girl in the Gluten-Free World

I'm a curious girl, wife, teacher, fitness fanatic, gluten-free foodie, high-raw vegan, and Mama Cat living in NYC. I've made the transition from baking and cooking gluten-free to creating raw vegan recipes that are naturally gluten free. My gluten intolerance opened up my diet to a whole new world of nutritious plant-based foods. While I'm not 100% vegan, it's my favorite way to eat, and making and sharing raw foods makes me giddy. Living in the City has its joys and challenges, and I enjoy sharing my experiences with you.
