Osem Instant Chocolate Pudding Ingredients – sugar, modified corn starch (produced from genetically modified organisms), alkalised cocoa powder, acidity regulators (tetrasodium pyrophosphate, calcium acetate, calcium lactate, disodium phosphate), caramelised sugar, flavourings.
I made up this chocolate pudding using Ecomil Almond milk. It was incredibly easy to make and involved no heating so could be done safely by a small, but independent child. It was very quick too, only requiring 5 minutes setting time before serving. I can imagine this product being very helpful on holiday if you are camping or in a cramped self-catering kitchen. It tasted surprisingly good too. The main minus point is the presence of GMO and other highly processed ingredients.
I paired the pudding with fresh raspberries and a Choceur (Aldi brand) Jamaican Rum Truffle.
Choceur Rich Chocolate Jamaican Rum Truffles Ingredients – sugar, fat reduced cocoa powder, glucose syrup, water, palm fat, Jamaican Rum (3%), ground almonds, thickener: gum arabic, humectant: invertase, stabiliser: agar, glazing agent: gum arabic.
I think describing these as truffles is a bit misleading. It’s better to think of them as rum and chocolate flavoured marzipan balls. I liked the fact that the truffles are coated in dark chocolate, sugar strands, which makes them quite attractive to look at. This was why I decided to use them to top the individual portions of chocolate pudding. They would also look good decorating a chocolate cake or sitting on a scoop or two of rum and raisin icecream. The “truffles” are very sugary, and you probably would not want to eat more than one or two in one go anyway.
