Gluten Free Dairy Free Chocolate Almond Butter Pudding

I have loved chocolate pudding since I was a kid. I remember making it with my dad and buying the My-T-Fine kind that he believed was superior to all others. We’d have a little before it went in the fridge and the waiting period while it cooled was always the hardest, but well worth it.

Chocolate pudding is one of those childhood desserts that I didn’t outgrow; in fact, I may like it even more now! Since I became a mom, I can’t help but try to sneak healthier ingredients into foods and desserts whenever possible, so this chocolate almond butter pudding recipe that I make with my kids now is no exception.

But, don’t let the word healthy fool you, it’s still plenty sweet and it is out of this world delicious!! We combined five ingredients (yes, just five ingredients!) to make this delicious chocolate almond butter pudding. It’s gluten free and dairy free, and also egg and soy free. I can’t explain just how good it is, you’ll have to try it to find out 🙂 .
