Almond Pudding with Carob and Arrowroot

Almond Pudding Carob

This delicious almond pudding with carob and arrowroot powder looks and tastes like chocolate - but without the fat and calories!

Almonds are low in saturated fat and are protecting strong bones and a healthy cholesterol level. They are low in sodium and high in immune-boosting phytochemicals.

Carob root is a great chocolate alternative for a low calorie vegan pudding recipe. It comes without the caffeine and theobromine, which can lead to allergies.

Enjoy this low calorie vegan almond pudding as a light dessert and surprise your family with a new healthy treat!
