Homemade Healthy Chocolate Pudding
Author: Loriel Adams
Prep time: 15 mins
Cook time: 4 hours
Total time: 4 hours 15 mins
  • 2½ tsp Vital Proteins beef gelatin
  • ⅓ cup coconut milk
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • 3½ Tbl cocoa powder
  • ¾ tsp unrefined sea salt
  • 1⅔ cup whole milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  1. In a medium bowl, add in the gelatin and coconut milk. Whisk with a fork until there are no clumps; mixture will solidify a bit -- it's okay.
  2. In a small sauce pan, combine maple syrup, cocoa powder, salt, and whole milk with a whisk. Turn the stove to medium low heat and whisk continuously until mixture heats up by bubbling around the edges (5-10 minutes).
  3. Using a sieve over the bowl of gelatin, pour the hot dairy mixture through the sieve into the bowl; whisk to combine ingredients.
  4. Stir in vanilla extract.
  5. Place the bowl uncovered in the refrigerator for 15 minutes. Once the time is up, remove from the refrigerator, place a sheet of plastic wrap on the top of the pudding, and place back in the refrigerator for 2-4 hours so the pudding can set.
  6. When you're ready to eat it, whip the pudding with a hand mixer or stand mixer to get to a creamy, velvety texture. Using a manual whisk or wooden spoon may not be enough to get the pudding to the desired texture.
