Sugar-Free, Dairy-Free, Paleo, Keto Chocolate Pudding!
That’s a mouthful! This may be the perfect Keto Chocolate pudding to put in your mouth though!
The kids always want some kind of treat, so I experimented with something different. I wanted to go chocolate based off of a treat the kids picked out at the grocery store on vacation a few weeks ago. I relax a little on the restrictions on vacation, and amazingly the treat they chose was not too far off. It was a store-bought Jello-brand chocolate mousse at the grocery store in Port Aransas, Texas. I expected it to be filled with artificial this and artificial that, but it actually had real cream in it! Surprising, right? It wasn’t perfect, but it did give me the idea of trying to create my own that was perfect! The only ingredient I am still waiting on is my new gelatin, but the Knox worked for today.
This is not really a mousse, but a pudding. With supervision, this is a great one to do with the kiddos this summer.
Start with your ingredients: (I also added vanilla and salt that are not pictured.)
1 can Coconut Cream (I used Trader Joe’s)
1 can Coconut Milk
You can see the difference in consistency between the two:
1/2 cup cocoa powder
3/4 cup Swerve Confectioners
3 packets of Gelatin or 3 Tbsp of this one
1/2 cup cold water
1/2 tsp Celtic salt
1 tsp vanilla
In a saucepan, combine your coconut cream, coconut milk, cocoa, Swerve, and salt.
Whisk over medium heat until warm.
In a small bowl, empty your gelatin packets and combine with your 1/2 cup of cold water. Stir until there are no clumps.
Whisk the gelatin mixture into your chocolate mixture, and stir until dissolved. Add your vanilla, and stir until well combined.
Spoon into 8 individual ramekins.
Cover each bowl with saran wrap and place in the fridge for about 2 hours to set.
We topped ours with homemade sugar-free dairy whipped cream, but if you are Paleo or dairy-free, you can whip up some coconut cream with some Swerve and vanilla and use that as well.
We all gobbled it right up. Enjoy!
