We love a good Collagen Fuel (or Primal Fuel) shake, but there’s something to be said for mixing it up. We think this Chocolate Collagen Pudding does the trick quite nicely—other non-Primal members of the household will likely think so, too. With two scoops of collagen plus cocoa powder and coconut milk (sub regular milk if you prefer), it satisfies even the most discerning chocolate lover without all the sugar and additives many puddings (especially boxed powders or premade varieties have).
And one juicy secret? You can have it two ways: mousse or pudding texture. (We think we just saw some eyes light up….) After blending the ingredients together, you can either pour the chocolate mixture into ramekins, or pour it into a pyrex container before placing in the fridge. If you do the former, you’ll get more of a mousse-like texture after the chocolate sets. If you do the latter and mix up the chocolate mixture after it sets, you’ll see more of a pudding texture. Enjoy!
1 Tbsp. maple syrup (optional, or your favorite sweetener, to taste)
1 tsp. vanilla extract
dash of salt
chopped chocolate & mint, to garnish
Heat ½ cup of coconut milk in a small saucepan. Once the coconut milk is warmed, sprinkle the Primal Kitchen Chocolate Coconut Collagen Fuel over the coconut milk. Remove the pan from the heat and allow the mixture to rest for 1-2 minutes. Whisk the collagen and coconut milk together. Add the vanilla extract. Sift the cocoa powder into the pan, stirring as you go.
Pour mixture into a blender along with a dash of salt, the remaining coconut milk and your sweetener of choice. Blend until smooth.
Allow the pudding to set for about 3 hours in the refrigerator. Gently mix the pudding with a spoon and pour it into ramekins or serving glasses. Garnish with chopped dark chocolate and a sprig of mint.
