Low-carb Chocolate Collagen Pudding Recipe (Dairy-free, Primal, Paleo!)
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Cooling Time: 3 hours
- 1 cup + 2 Tbsp. full-fat coconut milk (substitute milk of choice)
- 1/4 cup + 2 Tbsp. cocoa powder
- 2 scoops Primal Kitchen® Chocolate Coconut Collagen Fuel 
- 1 Tbsp. maple syrup (optional, or your favorite sweetener to taste)
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- dash of salt
- chopped chocolate & fresh mint leaves, 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 the 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.
T0 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.
Can I Make Keto Chocolate Pudding from This Recipe?
Yes! As written, this recipe contains 15 grams of carbs per serving, 11 grams net (without the optional chocolate topping). If you omit the maple syrup, it goes down to 11 grams total carbs, 7 grams net. You can always use stevia or another keto-friendly sweetener in place of the maple syrup, though you don’t need it. The Collagen Fuel adds sweetness by itself.
Also, this recipe makes three servings, but you can divide it into four petite servings to cut the carbs even more!
