How to make keto chocolate pudding
This recipe is super easy to prep, although it does need to chill in the refrigerator for several hours to fully set. I recommend making it in advance so it’s ready to enjoy whenever you want!
Step 1: In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the heavy cream and gelatine powder, then set aside.
Step 2: In a pot over medium heat, add the remaining ingredients and mix well.
Step 3: Allow to cook for about 5 minutes until the mixture is smooth and creamy, then remove from heat.
Step 4: Add the gelatine and cream to the pot.
Step 5: Mix the ingredients until well-combined and no lumps remain. Allow to cool for 10-15 minutes.
Step 6: Pour the mixture into serving cups, cover with plastic wrap, and place in the refrigerator to chill for 4 – 6 hours or overnight.
After a few hours, your creamy chocolate pudding will be ready to enjoy! I recommend garnishing with whipped cream and chocolate shavings before serving.
Adjusting the flavor and sweetness
After you whisk in the gelatine and cream mixture, I recommend tasting the pudding to see if you want to add more sweetener. If the cocoa you use is very bitter, you can add an extra tablespoon of erythritol to balance the flavor. Feel free to adjust to your personal taste!
You can also add more or less cocoa powder depending on how chocolatey you want your pudding. If adding more cocoa powder, include another teaspoon or two of erythritol to counteract the bitterness.
Getting a smooth texture
For the best low-carb pudding possible, you want to make sure that the texture comes out velvety, thick, and creamy.
The best way to do this is to whisk the mixture until it is completely lump-free before you let it chill. As long as you whisk thoroughly at each step in the recipe, this shouldn’t be too hard. It’s especially important to whisk after adding the sifted cocoa powder, which has a tendency to clump.
This will give you a perfect, silky-smooth pudding.
Adding toppings to your pudding
I like to top my keto pudding with a little bit of homemade whipped cream and chocolate shavings. The contrast of the whipped cream and the chocolate is absolutely dreamy!
But feel free to play around with other toppings as well. I could see adding some sliced strawberries, maybe a little mint, or even some chopped nuts. All of these combinations would be delicious.
You can also enjoy your pudding as-is. It’s a wonderfully rich and decadent treat all on its own!
This recipe is great to make ahead of time so it’s ready to enjoy whenever your sweet tooth strikes.
Low carb pudding can be stored covered in the refrigerator for up to a week. It will stay fresh and delicious that whole time!
I recommend storing the pudding in individual serving cups so you can easily grab one at a time.
