No Bake Vegan Coconut Chocolate Pudding

Disclosure: Vita Coco compensated The Recipe ReDux (co-owned by ReganMillerJones, Inc. and Teaspoon Communications) to sponsor a recipe contest last month. We were not eligible to win prizes associated with the contest. Opinions expressed here are my own.

Last month, Serena and I went a bit cuckoo for coconut water. Through our Recipe ReDux contest sponsored by Vita Coco, we were charged to come up with ways to use unflavored coconut water in cooking. We both had a lot of fun brainstorming and creating recipes like Coconut Ginger Chicken with Green Jasmine Rice , Mango Coconut French Toast Bake and Coconut Ginger Braised Asparagus, so much so, that’s become a new staple in both our pantries.

So, here’s yet another recipe using coconut water and hands-down, is the quickest and easiest of them all. This pudding is a terrific, last minute dessert whether you want to please the kids, dinner guests or just want a hit of chocolate at the end of a meal.

To come up with this recipe, I checked out some vegan, no bake and raw pudding recipes online and I admit, I was skeptical. Could you really get a rich, creamy flavor without using milk or turning on the stove?

Turns out, yes, you can.

No Bake Vegan Coconut Chocolate Pudding

Makes 2 (6 ounces) servings


  • 2 medium ripe bananas
  • ½ cup Vita Coco unflavored coconut water
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons toasted unsweetened coconut flakes, divided


  1. In a blender, mix bananas, coconut water, cocoa powder and maple syrup until smooth. Pour into two ramekins or small bowls. Top each pudding with 1 teaspoon of toasted coconut.
  2. Note: Refrigerate overnight if you want a thicker pudding.

For the record, I will never give up my tried & true, cook on the stovetop, milk & chocolate pudding recipe – but this one is certainly a great alternative when I want instant (not from a box) chocolate pudding – and I’m out of milk!

  1. How yummy! Does it have any coconut flavor?

    • The shredded coconut gives more coconut flavor than the coconut water which gives a clean taste. Let me know if you try it!

  2. Your photos are stunning and your recipes sound delectable. We would love for you to share them at The Feasting Eye is still a bit new, but I think you will like what you see :-).

  3. Your food looks delicious I love your site.

  4. Sounds lovely being a health counselor I’m always scouting for new recipes. I will definitely try this. And here’s one for you to try…smooth, creamy, unbelievably chocolatey. Chocolate avocado pudding. Yes I said it chocolate + avocado= delicious. I even made frosting out of this and cookies that came out like brownies. And of course I didn’t remember to write the cookie recipe. But that’s the fun of cooking….make something.
