Mint Chocolate Pudding

Yields 4

Preparation Time: 15 min
Cooking Time: 5 min


125 ml pitted dates 1/2 cup
125 ml boiling hot water 1/2 cup
500 ml milk 2 cups
60 ml cocoa powder 1/4 cup
45 ml cornstarch 3 tbsp
0.5 ml peppermint extract 1/8 tsp
0.5 ml vanilla extract 1/8 tsp
fresh mint leafs


Step 1
In a small bowl, stir together dates and boiling water. Let sit for 10 minutes. Pour into a food processor and blend until smooth.

Step 2
In a large pot over medium-high heat, whisk together date paste, milk, cocoa powder, cornstarch, peppermint extract, and vanilla extract. Whisk continuously until pudding is lightly simmering and thickened, around 5 minutes. Remove from heat once desired thickness has been reached. Enjoy hot or place in the refrigerator to enjoy cold later. Garnish with mint leaves.


If you like a bit more of a mint flavour in your desserts, add ¼ tsp peppermint extract instead of 1/8 tsp.
