Is this recipe healthy?
Healthy in my opinion is a relative term. However, since homemade almond milk chocolate pudding has less ingredients and additives than store bought pudding, I would say it’s a much healthier option! With only 1/4C of maple sugar as the sweetener, comparatively, homemade pudding probably has less sugar as well!Print
