Enjoy a childhood favorite with better-for-you ingredients. This is chocolate pudding reimagined, with fewer carbs than the original but all the creamy chocolate flavor you know and love.
1 cup + 2 Tbsp. full-fat coconut milk
1/4 cup + 2 Tbsp. cocoa powder
1 Tbsp. maple syrup (optional, or your favorite sweetener to taste)
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Dash of salt
Chopped chocolate & mint, to garnish (optional)
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 the maple syrup. Blend until smooth.
To make a mousse-like dessert: Pour the mixture into three individual serving ramekins. Place the ramekins in the refrigerator to set for three hours.
To make pudding: Pour the entire mixture into a pyrex dish and place in the refrigerator for three hours. Before serving, gently stir the mixture with a spoon until it becomes the consistency of pudding, then pour it into ramekins or serving glasses.
Either way, garnish the final product with chopped dark chocolate and a sprig of mint.
