Coconut and Chocolate Pudding : Low Carb : Dairy Free

Perhaps not for every day, but it can be a good dessert option for special occasions - perhaps Valentine's Day - February 14th is not too far away!

7g carbs per serving
14 oz. (400g) coconut milk
2 egg yolks
3 oz. (75g) dark chocolate with a minimum of 70% cocoa solids

Coconut milk has recently become very popular. It's a tasty alternative to cow's milk that may also provide a number of health benefits. Coconut milk comes from the flesh of mature brown coconuts. It is used in many traditional cuisines around the world. Coconut milk is high in calories and saturated fat. The milk is also a good source of several vitamins and minerals. Coconut milk is a tasty, nutritious and versatile food that is widely available. It can also be made easily at home. It’s full of important nutrients like manganese and copper. Including moderate amounts in your diet may boost your heart health and provide other benefits as well. Read more about Coconut milk here

Okay I copied the recipe. Coconut is not my favorite - I hate the texture - but maybe the milk will taste okay. Can you use anything else?
I would love fo find 'desserts' you can eat as a diabetic.
