Chocolate Coconut Pudding

Andrew Soucier

Chocolate Coconut pudding

*This is a great non-dairy pudding that is just wonderful for those special moments when you are wanting something rich, creamy and chocolaty that isn't terrible for you. A special treat. Use a high grade chocolate that is at least 70% cacao and you'll still redeem health benefits from the chocolate. Be creative with the flavorings. 

1 14-ounce can of coconut milk (lite is fine), divided
3 tablespoons organic evaporated cane sugar - you could use agave, honey, etc. 
scant 1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup arrowroot powder, sifted
1 teaspoon curry powder, (optional)
3 tablespoons alkalized dutch-cocoa powder, sifted
1 3.5-ounce bar organic semi-sweet/dark chocolate, chopped
1 teaspoons vanilla extract 
1/4 cup coconut flakes, toasted in a dry skillet

Shake the can of coconut milk vigorously for a few seconds. In a heavy saucepan bring 1 1/4 cups of the coconut milk, sugar, and the salt (just) to a simmer over low heat.

While that is heating, in a separate bowl whisk together the remaining coconut milk, arrowroot powder, (curry powder), and cocoa powder. It should look like a chocolate frosting.

When the coconut milk and sugar mixture has started simmering take about 1/4 cup of it and whisk it little by little into the arrowroot mixture, creating a slurry. Turn down the heat to the very lowest setting. Now drizzle the arrowroot slurry mixture into the simmering pan of coconut milk whisking vigorously all the while. Keep whisking until the pudding comes back up barely to a simmer and thickens up a bit, about a minute.

Remove the saucepan from heat, continue whisking while it is cooling for about a minute. Now whisk in the chocolate and vanilla. Keep stirring until the pudding is smooth. Place in a refrigerator to chill thoroughly. To prevent a skin from forming press plastic wrap up against the surface of the pudding. Serve dusted with the coconut flakes and a tiny pinch of curry powder if using.
