Author Notes: How about a pudding that even nursery school children can help make. This involves no baking or cooking, no not even a thickening agent, just simple, honest ingredients. And what is more, it is even good for you! vegetarianirvana

Makes 4-5

  • 1 cup homemade strained yogurt or labneh [or Fage 2% strained yogurt]
  • 2 tablespoon orange juice, fresh or otherwise
  • 3 tablespoon unsweetened pure cocoa powder
  • 3 tablespoon icing sugar
  • a few candied orange peels [optional] for decoration.
  1. whisk the first four ingredients to a smooth homogenous consistancy.
  2. Refrigerate for an hour to set. [Though if the strained yogurt and OJ are cold you can dig in right away!.]
  3. Serve topped with candied orange peel if using. Ta Da that simple!
  4. This recipe adapts well to changes in the amount of cocoa, sugar or OJ, as long as you keep it to a gooey pudding consistancy.

I love that this is good for me!! Chocolate and orange are one of my favorite combinations.

This sounds wonderful. For a minute I thought the candied orange was bacon!

There's an idea, seems to be a trend to add bacon to sweets.

...but your candied orange looks much more beautiful than bacon!

Hi H,
With OJ concentrate you could reduce the amount perhaps?. This pudding base is very adaptable to your taste, I myself tried different amounts of cocoa, sugar and OJ till I felt it all fell into place.

hardlikearmour is a trusted home cook.

I wonder how orange juice concentrate would work? Do you think the orange would be overpowering?
