Cherry Vegan Pudding

This cherry pudding is so easy to make and great for a hot summer day as it is raw.


1 large ripe bananas, peeled
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup cashew nuts, soaked (cover with clean water and soak for 3 – 4 hours)
1 cup cherries, pitted and sliced in half


First make the vanilla pudding:

  1. Blend the bananas in a blender.
  2. Add the nuts and vanilla, blend until creamy.
  3. Put in the refrigerator for 20 to 40 minutes to thicken.

Now simply mix the cherries into the vanilla pudding.


  • You can make it pretty by assembling it in a glass bowl.
  • Put a 1/3 of the vanilla pudding in the bottom of the bowl.
  • Then add 1/2 of the cherries, and then put another 1/3 of pudding on top.
  • Add the rest of the cherries and top it off with the rest of the vanilla pudding.

You can sprinkle some raw cashews.
Now eat and enjoy!

    Re: Cherry Vegan Pudding
    How much water is needed to soak the cashews without losing to much of the natural flavor?

  2. Diana Herrington July 21, 2014 at 10:48 am

    Cashews, soak for 3 – 4 hours covered in water. They don’t sprout because they are not a whole seed but soaking does makes them better for making puddings with. See post: SPROUTING NUTS & SEEDS

    I am confused , this recipe states ” Now simply mix the cherries into the vanilla pudding.”, am I making the vanilla pudding or buying the boxed vanilla pudding ?

    Meg. I have updated the recipe directions to make it clearer. Apologies, I was assuming that it was realized that you were making a raw vanilla pudding. Thank you for you question as I like to make my recipe directions very clear.

    I’m going to give this a try today.

    I’d like to substitute raw almonds for cashews. Will that work?

  7. Diana Herrington August 30, 2016 at 6:11 pm

    Karen, you can try soaked raw almonds. Problem is that they are not as creamy as cashews. Perhaps you could remove the skins and add a little coconut oil. If you do this, I would be very interested in learning how it worked for you. Wishing you the best in this.

    I tried making the cherry pudding. I did not have good results. When you put the banana in the blender, and then the soaked cashews, what liquids do you put in with it. Otherwise, it does not mix well.
