Chocolate Pudding : Dairy Free and Low Carb


If you are looking for an easy-to-make low-carb chocolate pudding which doesn’t contain dairy, then this dairy-free 4-ingredient chocolate pudding could be it! It doesn’t even need a saucepan or stove! Just whisk the ingredients together, pop into the microwave and let it cool down. But, if you are really in a hurry, enjoy the hot concoction as the most delicious thick dairy-free hot chocolate! Did I hear you say yum!

1 cup = 240 ml unsweetened coconut milk (thin, drinkable type)
2 tablespoons Natvia for Baking, or other sweetener to taste
1 tablespoon dark cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon glucomannan powder 
(instead of glucomannan powder grass fed gelatine may be used, but you may need to use 1 teaspoon)
Pour the coconut milk into a microwave-safe bowl.
Add the sweetener and the cocoa powder. Whisk well.
Sprinkle in the glucomannan powder gradually while whisking all the time. Whisk well to prevent lumps.
Place the bowl in a microwave oven.
Heat on high for 1 minute 30 seconds, or until the mixture is hot but not boiling.
Give the mixture a final whisk.
Cover the bowl and place in the fridge for a few hours, or until cold and thick.

Nutritional values highly depend on the type and brand of the dairy-free milk. Try to get one with as little carbs and as little food additives as you can get.

Glucomannan powder is a naturally occurring nutritional fibre that comes from the konjac plant. For years, it has been used as a thickener and emulsifier with countless cooking applications.

This recipe suggestion is from Elvira and you can find the original recipe with her very good step by step guide here

You know I have always chilled my pudding, I have never tried it warm after making.
I hope your weather warms up and you can get a break from the rain!
