I wanted to share this chocolate and blueberry pudding with you today - These types of puddings are a staple in the Finnish kitchen and they can be made using berries, fruit, chocolate, or just milk and vanilla. They are so light, quick and easy to whip up and a perfect dessert or an afternoon treat!
Prep: 30 mins
Cook: 55 mins
Yields: 4-6 servings
1The easiest way to go about this recipe is to blend all the ingredients (that is, everything but the fresh figs and almonds) in a blender until smooth. Pour this mixture into a small saucepan and heat it, stirring constantly, on a medium heat until it thickens. This will take a few minutes.
2As soon as the pudding has thickened, remove the saucepan from the heat and place it in a sink filled with cold water. The water should reach about half-way through the saucepan.
3Leave the pudding to cool, then scoop it into serving bowls or glasses and top with fresh fruit and toasted almonds. Serve the pudding cool or at room temperature.
