Vegan Vanilla Pudding with Chocolate-Raspberry Topping


When she’s not working in the beauty and fashion industry, Brianna Egglestone is making videos for her YouTube channel, Love Raw Vegan. “I’ve been vegan for three years and love experimenting in the kitchen,” she says. “I prefer to use minimal ingredients and create dishes that can be made in 15 minutes or less. I always loved vanilla pudding as a child, and adding in the raspberry swirl with chocolate bits turns a fun dish into something elegant that is always a hit at parties.” This recipe was awarded “Best Dessert” in VT’s 2014 Reader Recipe Contest.
