Ever since I made Kahlua Ice Cream last summer, I’ve been obsessed with chocolatey Kahlua treats. It is such an amazing flavour pairing, and brings a touch of sophistication to an otherwise everyday dessert. Fancy it up even more with coconut whipped cream and shaved chocolate.

Recipe Type: Dessert
Makes: 3 cups (approx.)

Rich and creamy, chocolate pudding spiked with Kahlua.


  • 1/4 cup Granulated Sugar
  • 3 tbsp Cocoa Powder
  • 3 tbsp Cornstarch
  • 1 tbsp Instant Coffee Granules
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1 3/4 cup Coconut Milk (canned, full fat)
  • 1 cup Plain, Unsweetened Non-Dairy Milk (I used almond)
  • 3/4 cup Dairy-Free Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • 1/4 cup Kahlua
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract



Place the sugar, cocoa, cornstarch,  coffee granules, and salt in a saucepan and whisk to combine. Whisk in the milk and coconut milk. Cook the mixture over medium heat, whisking occasionally. When the mixture begins to bubble, reduce the heat to medium-low and continue to cook, whisking constantly, until the mixture is thick and bubbly (2 to 3 minutes). Remove from heat and add the chocolate chips, Kahlua, and vanilla extract. Whisk until chocolate chips are melted and completely combined into the pudding.

Transfer the pudding to a large container and cover with plastic wrap, pressing the plastic wrap directly onto the surface of the pudding (this is to avoid a skin from forming). Refrigerate the pudding until set (about 4 hours).

Best eaten within 3 days. Store in the refrigerator.

    Yum. I wish I saw this earlier before I went to a party. It would have been fun to make for every one. I hope you had a happy St Patrick’s Day. 🙂

      Actually, the liqueur Kahlua is vegan (the premixed drinks that they make, however, are not)… As for chocolate chips, there are many brands that make dairy-free semi-sweet chocolate chips (they may just not advertise it on their bag). Trader Joe, Kirkland (from Costco), and Enjoy Life are just a few of the brands that come to mind. With chocolate chips, I always check the ingredients (even if it’s a brand I’ve bought before), just to be safe (companies have been known to change their recipes).
