What is pudding?
In Indonesia, the sweet desserts that are called pudding are something made with agar-agar. At least that’s how I understood many years ago. So when I moved to the UK, I was surprised that the word pudding is basically used for any sweet dessert that you have after the main meals.
So your pudding can be as simple as ice cream, cakes, cookies, or even a piece of chocolate.
Now, I’m not gonna discuss the definition of pudding here.
I just want to share with you a sweet dessert recipe that you can make 100% the vegan way. It’s light and chocolatey. It’s an indulgence but health-conscious at the same time.

Chocolate mousse pudding with Aquafaba
Actually, I made this pudding with Aquafaba (the liquid that you get in tinned beans i.e. tinned chickpeas, tinned mixed salad beans, etc.) by chance. Because I was making hummus and chocolate pudding at the same time.
And I read and learned about the Aquafaba thingy. But I never tried in reality.
So I thought I would give a try substituting the egg whites with Aquafaba for my chocolate pudding and see if it works.
And it worked!
I felt so happy because it means I waste less. That I can make the most of the canned chickpeas. Zero waste as everything is used.
My chocolate mousse pudding tastes amazingly mousse-y. Light and airy. Just like how a mousse should be.
