Vegan and gluten-free

Posted on May 17, 2018

Memorial Day often means gathering with friends and loved ones. This is one of my favorite dishes to bring to a large gathering. It’s a light, sweet, fresh pudding that kids and adults both love. It’s easy to make in about 15 minutes, is vegan, gluten-free, and made with delicious, real ingredients! What more could you ask for in a dessert?
