Pudology Vegan Puddings Review - Dairy Free and Gluten Free

Pudology want to make vegan food that's just as indulgent and delicious as any dairy based pudding. Their dairy and gluten free desserts are now available in Sainsburys and they've sent us a selection to take a look at.

We've been sent the Deeply Decadent Chocolate Pud, Smooth Chocolate Orange Pud and Simply Sumptuous Millionaire's Pud. All are are free from gluten, dairy, eggs and nuts - and suitable for anyone following a vegan, coeliac or kosher diet.

The base for the puddings is coconut milk and ingredients include such delights as Brazilian orange oil, Madagascan vanilla extract and rich Belgian chocolate, meaning that they aren't lacking in taste - they also look really enticing.

Pudology Deeply Decadent Chocolate Pud is where it all began. Made with rich, dark Belgian chocolate with a hint of Madagascan vanilla and a Great Taste 2013 Gold Star Award Winner.

It's gorgeous. Slightly bitter with only a very faint hint of coconut, this is very chocolatey and a bit rich for my 8 year old. A very thick whipped ganache which doesn't quite melt-in-the-mouth, but it's very easy on the tongue.

Pudology Smooth Chocolate Orange Pud uses Brazilian orange oil to add a tangy twist and won a Great Taste Gold star 2016.

It's a gorgeous tasting chocolate orange which even I can smell. Slightly dark for my 8 year old, but I liked it as much as the Deeply Decadent Chocolate Pud. Both are very rich indeed, I think some people might struggle to eat a whole pot, but I'm sure there'll be takers for leftovers...

Pudology Milllionaire's Pud is the newest addition to the range and the one I was most intrigued by. Layers of thick chocolate ganache, sticky toffee and crumbly biscuit...

This was lovely. Absolutely no hints that it could possibly be free-from anything and my son finished this one off smacking his lips.

The whole Pudology range was created by Lucy Wager, a food developer who had to give up dairy for health reasons and missed indulgent puddings. She's also created Pudology Banoffee Pud and Pudology Yogs - all coconut milk based, dairy and gluten free.

The Pudology puds are indistinguishable from dairy-based as far as I can tell and I'd never guess they were vegan, despite trying everything I possibly can in my 32 years as a vegetarian. I've sometimes felt I missed out on mousse style desserts as they regularly have beef gelatine, this is a perfect substitute.

My son dislikes coconut, but didn't notice it, even when I told him it was there. Pudology puds are very clever and if you want to really treat, and really surprise, a vegan friend or relative - this is a dessert that'll do it.

Pudology is available nationwide through independent health-food shops, Holland & Barrett, selected Waitrose and Sainsbury's stores as well as online with Ocado.
Twin pack desserts (2x85g) rrp £2.99 and Pudology Yogs rrp £1.99-2.99 each. Find out more on the Pudology website.

We were sent 8 Pudology Desserts for review.
