Chocolate and peanut butter ganache pudding

Chocolate and peanut butter ganache pudding

Love the combination of chocolate and peanut butter? Then you’ll love this pudding.

And it’s not as naughty as it looks – it’s low fructose, packs in some protein and has the added benefit of antioxidants from the cacao.

This smooth, silky, ganache-like pudding also delivers in flavour, with a slightly salty hint from the peanut butter and the richness of the chocolate.

Even though this is a much healthier take on a chocolate dessert, it is very rich and best enjoyed in small portions.

You can make it your own too – top it with fresh raspberries or banana slices, or sprinkle over some chopped nuts or cacao nibs for a bit of crunch.


¼ cup coconut cream

½ cup peanut butter

5 tablespoons rice malt syrup (can use honey or maple syrup instead)

¼ cup coconut oil, melted

¼ cup cacao powder

1 teaspoon of vanilla extract


Place all ingredients into a large mixing bowl.

Using an electric hand-held mixer, beat the mixture on a low speed until the ingredients come together and are well combined. Be careful not to over-blend the mixture. You want a glossy and thick consistency, not liquid.

Serve in small bowls and enjoy straight away, or place in the fridge for a couple of hours to get more of a fudgy texture.

Makes 4 servings (⅓ cup size servings). The recommended serving sizes are small as this is quite a rich dish.
