(Dairy Free) Chocolate Covered Strawberry-Cheesecake Pudding Parfait

Okay, so I'm on a pudding parfait roll...Can you blame me? Pudding has always been one of my favorite treats, and raw vegan pudding is just exquisite! I get bored with the same thing over and over, so I keep changing up ingredients. For all of you that really want to make pudding, but don't have access to young Thai coconuts,  I used Tropical Traditions Coconut Cream instead. Yes, it turned out as tasty as it looks and definitely thickens as it chills and the coconut cream starts to set. Your family and friends will LOVE you for making this for them!

Once again, any of my pudding or cheesecake recipes can be tweaked to create almost any flavor. Don't hesitate to get creative and add your own flair to these recipes!!! Have a question? Post it below and I'll try to answer. If you don't have white chia, I highly suggest finding some. It really helps when you want to keep the colors of your dish lighter and brighter!!!
