This pudding is easy to make, super low in carb content, and absolutely delicious! What could be better?!
The BEST homemade chocolate pudding
One of the reasons this pudding is SO amazing is because it only requires FIVE ingredients! Seriously, you guys. It is almost TOO easy. With just cream cheese, heavy whipping cream, unsweetened cocoa powder, vanilla extract, and of course, monk fruit sweetener, you will have the TASTIEST keto chocolate pudding EVER!
The easy factor doesn’t end there. On top of only requiring five ingredients, this pudding only requires ten minutes of prep time. TEN! You simply mix all of the ingredients (check specific instructions below, as there is an art to it!), and then let it chill in the refrigerator for an hour. After an hour, BOOM. You’ve got delicious chocolate pudding!
Keto chocolate pudding
If you’re a regular Real Balanced reader, I’m sure it is no surprise to you that this delicious chocolate pudding is completely low carb and perfect for the ketogenic diet. A HUGE follower of the keto diet, I specifically create ALL of my recipes to be as low in carbs as possible.
Whether I’m making a giant, savory dinner dish or a yummy dessert, I keep everything low carb. Who said you can’t enjoy a little something sweet when on the keto diet?! It’s actually TOTALLY possible, and super easy, at that!
This keto chocolate pudding only contains 3.6 grams of net carbs per serving. How incredible is that?! One of the ways I keep the carbohydrate count of sweet dishes low is by using Lakanto Monk Fruit Sweetener!
Lakanto Monk Fruit Sweetener
Lakanto makes the absolute BEST sweetener out there. It tastes DELICIOUS! It’s net carb free, calorie free, and zero glycemic, meaning it will NOT spike blood sugar! It tastes exactly like sugar, and it’s honestly a life saver when it comes to creating ketogenic diet-friendly sweets. Oh, and did I mention it is ALL-natural?!
Monk fruit sweetener is great because it incorporates into recipes SO easily. It utilizes a 1:1 ratio to granulated sugar, so there is no measuring required.
Lakanto offers two variations of their sweetener: Classic and Golden. Classic is typically used as a replacement for white sugar, and Golden for brown. However, you can use both variations interchangeably! Whichever you have on hand will work completely fine.
If you would like to try out Monk Fruit Sweetener, now is the PERFECT time. Lakanto provides TWO awesome ways for Real Balanced readers to save.
