This Chocolate Sundae Vanilla Cream may look decadent, but this super easy, vegan dessert recipe is light on sugar, and packed with flavor.




  1. Place cornstarch and salt in a medium saucepan and gradually mix in plant-based milk with a whisk until smooth with no lumps.
  2. Add maple syrup and vanilla and heat over medium, stirring constantly with a whisk until smooth (about 3 minutes).
  3. Remove from heat and cool, stirring with a whisk occasionally, for 10 minutes. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour and mix well before serving it.
  4. To serve: Fill individual serving dishes with ½ cup cream pudding, and top with 1/2 tablespoon shredded coconut, 1/2 tablespoon chopped macadamia nuts, and 1 tablespoon chocolate chips.
  5. Serve immediately.
