Classic Raw Vegan Chocolate-Vanilla Pudding Parfait

I've published several pudding/mousse variations, but here is the BASIC recipe which can be modified in so many ways. Don't like cashews? Add more coconut meat and chia seeds. Dislike chocolate? Add frozen fruit and/or extracts. Instead of Vanilla Pudding, add caramel, butterscotch or rum extracts. Instead of Chocolate Pudding, add hazelnut, almond, or coffee extracts.

You all know what a fan of Medicine Flower extracts I am. Right now they are Certified Organic, cold extracted, and super concentrated. If you have not tried them, I highly suggest you check them out. Mention "Rawfully Tempting" in Shipping comments and get a Free Bonus Sample!

This pudding has outrageous mouth-feel. It's creamy, rich, slightly sweet (or sweeter if you want it), and ever so satisfying! One of my all time favorite recipes! Please leave comments if you try this. We'd love to hear from you!
