January’s here. Your New Year’s resolutions are still going strong (we hope!). But all you want to do is curl up on the sofa with a big bowl of something sweet, comforting and reassuringly stodgy. We know. Life’s an eternal struggle.
Enter our round-up of deliciously healthy puds. You’re welcome.
Orange Chocolate Pudding
There are few things in life that can’t be fixed with chocolate. And these little pots of chocolatey delight are no exception. Packed with dates and avocado, these vegan puds are sweet, creamy and completely sugar-free.

Spicy Vegan Black Bean Brownies
Rich, fudgy and decadent brownies. You can’t really ask for more than that. The best bit? This batch is entirely gluten, refined sugar and dairy-free. And it’s all thanks to a secret ingredient: black beans.

Dairy-Free Almond Butter Ice Cream
Sometimes only ice cream will do. For those times, here’s a recipe for dairy-free almond butter ice cream. Bursting with heart-healthy nuts, this super simple pud is as tasty as it is good for you. Win-win.

Sinless Sticky Toffee Pudding
Traditional sticky toffee pudding might be packed full of dates, but sadly it’s never going to pass as a health food. This version might not be entirely sinless, but with zero refined sugars, dairy or gluten, it’s almost there.
Serve with homemade vegan ice cream and top with a sprinkling of toasted pecans. The perfect comfort food for a cold January evening.

Blackberry, Apple and Maple Crumble
Nothing says comfort quite like crumble. And luckily this one ticks all the boxes. Tart, sweet, buttery—it’s hard to believe it’s actually dairy and gluten free. Not that we’re complaining.
