My daughter, Jazlyn, is anaphylactic to egg, dairy, peanuts, and tree nuts. When she was first diagnosed, I found it very difficult to find recipes and foods that didn't taste like "allergy" food. Over the last 15 years I have had a lot of fun developing and changing recipes so that they are safe for her. I love to share my recipes so that other families can realize how yummy "allergy" foods can taste. You don't have to sacrifice taste or your favorite foods, you just have to rethink how to make them. I made a promise to Jazzy that I would do my very best to find a way for her to eat any food she wants to try. So far I have been able to keep that promise. I hope your family enjoys these recipes as much as we do.

Egg Free, Dairy Free, Nut Free Chocolate Pudding and Pie Filling

Jazzy only likes the boxed pudding mix turned into ice cream or mousse, not as actual pudding. This homemade chocolate pudding is so rich and thick and wonderful that Jazzy just couldn't get enough.  My girls and I love this pudding so much that a single batch is just too small. Below the recipe, I posted the amounts if you want to triple this recipe like we do.

Chocolate Pudding and Pie Filling

2/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup cocoa powder
3 tbsp corn starch
1/4 tsp salt
1 2/3 cups soy milk
2 tbsp dairy free margarine
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4-1/2 cup safe chocolate chips, optional

Whisk together the sugar, cocoa, corn starch and salt in a large saucepan. Add the soy milk and whisk until thoroughly combined. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly. Bring the mixture to a slow boil then stir constantly for 1 more minute until thickened. Remove the saucepan from the heat then stir in the margarine, vanilla and chocolate chips. Serve warm or chilled.
*  To use as a pie filling, fill the pie shell then chill until cool.

Triple Batch Chocolate Pudding and Pie Filling

2 cups sugar
3/4 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup plus 1 tbsp corn starch
3/4 tsp salt
5 cups soy milk
6 tbsp dairy free margarine
3 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 - 1 1/2 cups safe chocolate chips, optional

Follow the instructions listed above.


  1. I'm going to try this! Mothering had a recipe for choc pudding using avocado, so that's on my to-try list as well. I hate spending $1 each on those tiny soy pudding cups!

  2. Let me know what you think. If you safe chocolate chips, I recommend stirring some in the hot mixture. Jazzy said that the chocolate chips made it extra yummy.

  3. Made this today.... DELICIOUS! THANK YOU :)
