Just the real thing.

Growing up, chocolate pudding was a super special treat. Coming from a rather crunchy-before-it-was-cool family, my mom never would have dreamed of feeding her family boxed or pre-made pudding. Oh, no, not my mother. The only time I ever had that “fake stuff” was at a friend’s house, and that was a very rare thing.
 
Chocolate pudding was only ever to be homemade, from real ingredients like goat’s milk, whole grain flour, and only sweetened with maple syrup or honey. 
 
And it was always delicious. One hundred times better than my friends’ so-called chocolate pudding.

Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Pudding.

Nowadays, since giving up most whole grain flour, and looking for something that doesn’t require me to stand by the stove stirring constantly, I’ve opted for super quick and easy. ‘Cause with six kids running around, I don’t really have time to stand there and wait for something to thicken. Though I do enlist the help of my kids with things like that every now and again.
 
But really, I’m more of a dump and go kinda girl. Case in point, this dark chocolate peanut butter pudding. Just gather a few simple ingredients, dump them in a blender (I use my beloved Blendtec), puree until smooth, and enjoy. Easy peasy, and incredibly delicious.
 
And healthy, too! Healthy enough to eat for breakfast, though this pudding is so delicious, it’s practically a dessert. But ya know me, I’m gonna eat it for breakfast every chance I get. ‘Cause that’s the best time to have dessert anyway, in my opinion.
 

Options.

I usually make this pudding with two things that I always have on hand: peanut butter and bananas. But if you aren’t into either of those, they’re both easily replaced. You can use any ol’ nut butter in place of peanut butter. Almond butter works really well, for paleo or peanut-free people, and you could use something else like walnut butter, too.

If you’re not into bananas, my favorite sub is pre-cooked sweet potatoes or pumpkin puree. Now, if I were going to use sweet potatoes instead, I would probably just make my paleo chocolate sweet potato smoothie bowl. It’s not a pudding, per se, but it’s pretty close texture-wise. And it’s also a delicious dessert for breakfast kinda meal. But if you want to just simply sub the sweet potato for bananas in this recipe, it’s delicious. The two bananas equal about 1 cup of mashed banana, so when subbing just make sure you use an equal amount of sweet potato puree or pumpkin.
