Keto Chocolate Pudding
It’s the New Year woohoo! And we all know that means all new resolutions. I’m pretty good about sticking to my resolutions as long as I don’t make too many at once. I think one year I made 25 resolutions, I’m sure you can guess how that turned out (crash and burn!).
This year my only resolution is to take control of my eating habits and one of the best ways for me to do that is with the Keto Diet. For those of you that don’t know about the Keto diet, it is essentially a high-fat diet — your meals are 70 or 80 percent fat; about 20 percent protein; and about 5 percent carbohydrate. The Keto diet switches you from burning glucose (which carbs provide) to burning ketones (which fat produces) for energy.
I love fats so it’s a pretty easy lifestyle for me to maintain, the problem is that I love sweets too and those have been pretty hard to give up 🙁 Fortunately, I can have my pudding and eat it too! This magical Keto Chocolate Pudding Recipe is completely inline with Keto principles but squashes my sugar cravings after just a couple bites.
The secret to this delicious Keto Chocolate Pudding Recipe is Thai Kitchen Coconut Milk. Thai Kitchen coconut milk contains only three pure ingredients: coconut milk, water, and guar gum (a natural thickener for added creaminess). Coconut milk is also a natural source of MCT’s (we all know how important MCT’s are in the Keto diet!!) and it’s also gluten-free, dairy-free, paleo AND vegan.
People sometimes assume that coconut milk is only for Thai recipes, but honestly, because of it’s mild flavor and creamy texture, you can use this stuff in pretty much any recipe that calls for milk or cream. It’s also available in Regular, Lite (60% less calories and fat than regular coconut milk), Organic, and Organic Lite (USDA Organic certified). You can buy Thai kitchen coconut milk at most major retailers, including Amazon!
Alright guys, let’s get to the yummy stuff! This Keto Chocolate Pudding Recipe is pretty much heaven in a bowl and I know you will love it as much as I do!
