One of my favorite flavor combinations from when I was a child is chocolate and orange. I can remember loving the candied oranges dipped in chocolate fondue. I’ve taken a bit of a healthier twist on that old favorite by adding orange juice to this Vegan Mexican Chocolate Pudding recipe. If that’s not a flavor combination you enjoy, you can substitute a dash of real vanilla extract instead.
