Instructions:

1. In a small pot, pour coconut milk and add the pitted dates. Bring to a boil. Once it starts to simmer, turn the heat off and let the dates soak in the milk for at least 10 minutes, or until soft.

2. Transfer to a blender and blend for about 1 minute or until smooth. Pour the mixture back into the pot.

3. Add cocoa or cacao powder, peanut butter, salt, vanilla extract, and mix well. Bring to a simmer over medium-low heat.

4. In the meantime, to a small bowl, add the cornstarch with 3-4 tablespoons cold water and mix until it dissolves. Add to the pudding mixture, whisking constantly.

5. Turn the heat to low and keep whisking for 3-4 minutes, or until the pudding has thickened.

6. Pour it into a medium mixing bowl and immediately cover it with plastic wrap. Make sure the plastic touches the surface of the pudding.

7. Chill at room temperature for at least 1 hour before serving, or overnight in the fridge. Enjoy as-is, or top with whipped cream and/or chopped peanuts.
