This S’mores Pudding Bowl is made with some creative healthy ingredients, and I assure you it tastes divine! My 8 year old son has declared it the food he “wants to eat for every meal.” The pudding is rich, creamy, and chocolatey. The marshmallow topping, made from aquafaba, is light, airy and totally legit!! I was eating both of these separately by the massive spoonfuls. Jackie notes in the recipe that there will be leftover marshmallow fluff after making the S’mores Pudding Bowls. I’m not quite sure what she is talking about – I had none leftover. 😉

- 1 1/2 cups (345 g) mashed avocado
- 1/2 cup (40 g) unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/3 cup (59 g) Medjool dates, pitted and soaked in warm water for 15 minutes
- 1-2 tbsp (15 to 28 ml) date soaking water
- 3 tablespoons (45 ml) pure maple syrup
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/3 cup (80 ml) Aquafaba (the liquid drained from a can of chickpeas)
- 1/2 cup (120 g) organic superfine cane sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla powder
- 1/4 cup (21 g) vegan graham crackers, crushed
- 1/4 cup (44 g) soy-free, nut-free vegan mini chocolate chips
- Place all of the ingredients in a food processor and process with an s-blade until smooth. It may take a couple of minutes for the dates to break down. Add more date soaking water to the pudding if you think it is too thick. Refrigerate the pudding for 1 to 2 hours until chilled.
Put the Aquafina into the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment and beat the liquid on medium speed until foamy. Raise the speed to high and beat until the mixture has expanded considerably and forms peaks, about 15 to 20 minutes. With the mixer running, add the superfine sugar 2 tablespoons (30 g) at a time and then add the vanilla powder. The fluff should form soft peaks.
- Divide the pudding among 4 small bowls and then place about 1/3 cup (32 g) of marshmallow fluff into each bowl. Using a kitchen torch, toast the top of the fluff lightly. (If you do not have a torch, you can omit this step.) Top the dessert with the crushed graham crackers and chocolate chips. Serve immediately.
If you can't find superfine sugar, whir regular organic cane sugar in a food processor.
There will be a lot of marshmallow fluff left over from this recipe - use it in the Cookie's 'n' Cream Dip (pg. 189 of Vegan Bowl Attack) or the Kiwi Pistachio Mousse with Praline Crumbles (pg. 184 of Vegan Bowl Attack)
Vegan graham crackers can be tricky to find, but I've had luck when checking the ingredient labels on kids' graham crackers.
