I was craving something sweet and had some extra coconut milk, so I invented this creamy pudding that has hints of chai, mocha and vanilla. It’s what I call an ‘adult’ pudding, due to the chai and mocha flavorings, although kids would like it as well.
I’m doing keto and losing weight like crazy even eating delicious desserts like this. It’s amazing. I’ll blog about that later.
If you’re counting calories, this one comes in at just 55 calories. If you’re counting carbs, this one is at a 9. Not exactly low carb but since it contains no sugars, you can save some carbs for this.
The recipe is simple and no fail. Simply combine all of the ingredients in a pot, use an immersion or a hand blender to blend it up, boil and pour into dishes for a few hours.
Below is a photo of the mixture on the stove, with ingredients added.
And below this is what it looks like all blended up. If you don’t a hand blender or also called an immersion blender, you can use a food processor or a mixer. It just needs to become a smooth mixture before you boil it.
Below is the texture it should be when it’s boiled to the point where it thickens. See how it is sticking to the spoon?
It’s easy and some might even consider it healthy. It’s a really decent splurge on a diet that will feel like a cheat, but won’t be.
This recipe makes enough for 2. Double or tripling the recipe is easy, to make more.
Here is the recipe. Give it a try!
