If you can’t plant a tree then do the next best thing and save the planet with these Plant-a-tree Earth Day Pudding cups. Made with my favorite Chocolate Pudding recipe as a base, this is an easy-to-assemble allergen-friendly snack that you will love making (but not as much as eating).
It’s as easy as this:
Fill in two small cups full of nondairy chocolate pudding. You can follow the recipe here or even watch the video tutorial on how to make it here.
Top the pudding with raw cacao nibs. Now you can also use shredded coconut that has been lightly colored with an all-natural green food coloring. Check out this recipe to see how you color the coconut.
Top the pudding with the homemade pretzel sprout. This video shows how to do it:
And seriously that is it; a fun way to celebrate this upcoming Earth Day!

These are great! I am definitely going to try the pudding recipe this weekend.
These are so cute and look delicious. I am going to make these for US Veg Out Week for me and and my hubby. I have recipes for sweet potatoes in brownies but not in pudding! Can’t wait to try–I”m too afraid to make brownies lest I eat too many. Thanks for sharing.
This is absolutely adorable! Great recipe for kids! 🙂
Thank you so much Naila!
These are so adorable! My kids would get a big kick out of these because they are watching their own seedlings grow in cups for their garden!
Oh that is so adorable! How fun to eat the pudding cups while staring at the seedlings to grow 😉

So adorable! You could even put allergy-friendly gummi worms in for true dirt n’ worms.
Yes! Love that idea, in fact, I know just where to buy some so it looks like I know what I will be doing soon…
