A Dessert Like No Other

During my junior and senior year of college at Johnson & Wales University (aka JWU), I was able to take some amazing culinary nutrition labs - like chemistry lab but with food! The funnest ones were 'Designing Healthy Desserts' and 'Sports Nutrition'. 

A super cool thing I learned in both labs, was how to make vegan desserts using avocados and black beans. When either of these ingredients are mixed with chocolate, it's nearly impossible to tell one of the main ingredients is NOT butter in the pasty/dessert. 

This trick for healthy swaps, makes this dessert the perfect healthy treat any time of year - especially for the holidays! This chocolate pudding is vegan and both paleo AND keto (I know, that's how we roll). And even those who aren't trying to stick to a diet will still enjoy it. If you give it a try, let us know your thoughts in the comment section, or snap a picture of your dessert and tag us on Facebook and Instagram!

Recipe Notes:

  • Net Carbs per serving is 1 g.
  •  Top chocolate pudding with mint, berries, shaved 70% chocolate, bananas, strawberries, or any other topping of choice.

Description

As part of our Keto and clean recipe collection, this dessert is perfect to have year round, and specially during the holidays, to support you in staying in track with your keto lifestyle. 

Ingredients

  • 2.7 fl oz./80 ml coconut milk, full fat
  • 0.35 oz/10g dark cocoa powder
  • 2.5 Tbsp./3.8g Erythritol
  • ~0.5 cup/100 g Avocado, mashed
  • 0.5 Tsp./2.1g Vanilla Extract
  • 0.5 Tsp./1.3g Ground Cinnamon
  • 1 Pinch/1.3g Nutmeg
  • 0.5 Tsp./2.1g Instant Coffee (optional)
  • 1 Pinch/ Orange zest (optional)

Instructions

  1. In a bowl, combine the coconut milk, cocoa powder, and erythritol. Mix with a electronic mixer until all ingredients are combined, and no large lumps are visible.
  2. You can also do the first step on a food processor to reduce the amount of dishes being used, or feel free to use a hand blender to incorporate all ingredients in a bowl. A food processor would make the job much easier, but feel free to use what you have available.
  3. Add the avocado, vanilla extract, spices, coffee, and orange zest (if using - highly recommend) to the food processor/bowl. Blend until smooth.
  4. Transfer to a small bowl or round glass. Chill in the refrigerator for 10-20 minutes.
