The Lightest Chocolate Pudding

This light and tasty chocolate pudding is another Finnish dessert classic, and so easy to make you can whip it up in a matter of minutes. It contains no eggs, no gluten, it's practically fat free and it doesn't have much sugar either. There's no gelatine and no setting in the fridge so it really is a great dessert choice for both dinner parties and for kids as a healthy alternative to those sugary shop bought puddings. If you want you can always make this more luxurious by using dark chocolate instead of chocolate powder and serve it with a selection of different berries.

It has a soft and gooey, almost jelly-like texture. I think this light chocolate pudding makes such a fun, guilt-free and tasty dessert for both adults and kids!
