Bourbon Spiked Vanilla Pudding (vegan)

This simple recipe was inspired by my favorite fall/winter drinks – Old Fashioned’s and Manhattan’s. I’m pretty much a fan of most cocktails with bourbon or whiskey in them! This vegan dessert isn’t too sweet. The cinnamon, bourbon, and vanilla give it a warm, comforting flavor. It tastes rich but is actually light and low in calories. It’s really easy to make and is best made ahead of time.

Rich in flavor – light in calories!
