Ultra rich healthier dirt pudding cups that are unbelievably vegan, Paleo, and dairy free make for the best healthy Halloween treat for kids! 



Paleo Chocolate Pudding

  • 16 ounces coconut cream
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/8 cup cacao powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/8 cup arrowroot powder/cornstarch

Paleo Vegan Oreos:

  • 3/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 cup cacao 
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil

Paleo Vegan Gummy Worms:

  • 1/2 cup green juice
  • 1/2 cup orange juice or carrot juice
  • 1 tsp agar powder


To make the Paleo vegan chocolate pudding:

  1. Combine the coconut milk, coconut sugar, cacao powder, and vanilla extract in a medium saucepan and heat on medium-high until warm.
  2. Add in the chocolate chips and continue stirring until melted. Reduce the heat to medium-low.
  3. Continue stirring the mixture for about 10 minutes on low heat until the coconut milk begins to thicken. 
  4. Sift in arrowroot power and stir until dissolved.
  5. Remove the pudding from heat and transfer to a bowl. Let cool for 15 minutes, then cover with tin foil to let sit at room temperature for 2 hours.

Oreo crumble:

  1. Prepare 1 batch of the Paleo vegan Oreo cookies, minus the coconut butter. To do this, preheat the oven to 375F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the coconut flour, cacao powder, and baking soda. 
  3. Add in the maple syrup and coconut oil, and combine with a spoon until consistent.
  4. Spread the cookie dough onto the parchment paper (you don’t need to make cookies out of it, since you’ll be crumbling it!). Bake for 10 minutes.
  5. Remove from the oven and let cool for 5 minutes, then transfer the cookie to the fridge to chill and harden before you crumble it. Let it sit in the fridge for 10-15 minutes.

To make the vegan gummy worms:

  1. Heat green juice in a small sauce pan until it begins to bubble.
  2. Add in 1/2 tsp agar powder and stir for 5 minutes on medium heat.
  3. Remove the juice from heat, and pipe the juice into the worm molds.
  4. Repeat steps 1-3 for the orange/carrot juice.
  5. Let sit at room temperature for 5 minutes before transferring to the fridge to cool for another 10 minutes.

To assemble the healthy dirt pudding cups:

  1. Layer the chocolate pudding first into 4 jars.
  2. Crumble the Paleo vegan Oreo’s cookie on top.
  3. Top with a few gummy worms, and serve!
