When I was missing things in vegan January like pudding and in particular chocolate, I conjured up this semolina chocolate pudding to compensate for both and wow did I surprise myself with just how good it tasted.

It was like someone jumping up and giving me a huge great big chocolate kiss. Plus, it actually felt like I was having a real chocolate dessert. You know one of those ones you have when you’re out at a restaurant to round off a fab meal?

I’ve got to say though, this semolina chocolate pudding won’t have you feeling bloated after it. It’s pretty light going, but it’s still just enough to give you that full up chocolate feeling!

Plus there’s the lovely toasted nuts to give that all-satisfying crunch.

I can imagine serving this semolina chocolate pudding at a dinner party.

I don’t know about you but I often spend so long flapping about getting the main course ready that the dessert is often left to the last minute.

Fortunately, that’s absolutely fine with this semolina chocolate pudding because it’ll take you just 30 minutes to get it into the fridge and in a couple of hours you can take it out whilst the chat still goes on, meaning you don’t disappear into the kitchen for ages.

There you go it’s a sociable pudding too. 🙂

  1. YUM! I never think to make a dessert with semolina. This looks fab. I love dates and can’t believe I spent so many years turning my nose up at them. Now I eat them all the time and they make a great chocolatey substitute.

      Thanks Erin. 🙂

      I never thought of making a dessert with semolina until vegan January came around, and I still had lots of semolina left over from various breakfast recipes I needed to use up. Sometimes life throws challenges at us and sometimes you come up with great solutions. I’m proud of this one. It stopped me going mad over missing my chocolate and puddings in January! 😉

      Just waiting for Lynne to come back on some dates for May.

  2. I can’t believe that this is only 233 calories! It looks so indulgent and delicious!

      It’s just the perfect “treat” Rachel, because it’s so delicious and so guilt free being so low in calories! 🙂

  3. You beyond crack me up. A sociable pudding? Well, it is finding a friend with your porridge 😀 I bet that the semolina, rather than another flour, mades it light and nearly bouncy. I would imagine that if you threw things at it they would more splat than bounce, but it might be worth a try….

      I’m thinking we must both have the same kind of humour. I know, cause I cracked myself up writing “it’s a sociable pudding” but Lynne didn’t think it was at all funny! But now, yes. Semolina breakfast porridge has a friend. But I’m thinking they probably both need a friend in the middle. Maybe a semolina soup? 😆

      You’re right. The semolina here is really light. It nearly floats away……….. 😉

  4. Neil, you really didn’t have to list 8 reasons why I’d love this chocolate pudding – one look at it on Instagram and I was hooked! At first I didn’t even realize it was good for me – but seeing that it’s chock full of wholesome ingredients – I say why share??? why???? If I had this pudding when I had company – I’d share my semolina cookies with them – and then when they left, I’d be like “oops, forgot to give them this, guess I better eat it myself, less it goes bad” 🙂
    I have so got to try this!

      Bahahaha 😀 That’s brilliant Shashi! Quite possibly the best feedback on one of my recipes ever!! Loved it. Thank you.

      As I said on your Chocolate Strawberry Cookies, you and I just need to decide what we’re going to eat in between your cookies for breakfast and my pudding for dessert! 😉

  5. This looks great, Neil! I’m a big chocolate mousse fan – so this looks right up my alley!

  6. Well that’s fun! I remember when my mom would make us chocolate pudding in these individual glass parfait glasses and I would be DIEING for them to firm up in the fridge!

    • neil@neilshealthymeals.com says:

      Ha ha! Thanks Rebecca. 🙂 You could actually eat these straight from the blender, if you can’t wait for them to have at least a little “firming up”. 😉

  7. I love little chocolate puddings like this, and they are always served at our dinner parties. I have never made it with semolina though, but I am going to have to as I love that it’s so low in calories.

    • neil@neilshealthymeals.com says:

      I love the pudding part of dinner parties. But in the past I’ve always made a cheesecake or something like that, and guests are usually too full up to enjoy it.

      This is a much better and lighter option, that I’ll probably serve up from now on as the pudding option if I know that my guests will probably be full up after the main meal.

  8. Semolina is the most common ingredient in our Indian kitchen but I never even thought that I can use semolina with chocolates to create yummy pudding as well.. Inspiring…

    • neil@neilshealthymeals.com says:

      Thank you so much Priya. 🙂

      I love cooking with Semolina. Both for breakfast and for yummy puddings as well. I think semolina is so under-rated in countries other than India.
