Why This Pudding is Best

  • Natural sugar free sweetener – We use granulated monk fruit to sweeten the pudding without adding calories–or the unpleasant aftertaste of artificial sweeteners.
  • Real chocolate – Melting squares of real chocolate into the pudding fills it with that rich cocoa flavor we can’t get enough of.
  • Easy to make – It only takes 20 minutes of hands-on time to prepare this delicious homemade pudding.
  • Keto chocolate pudding – It’s low in carbs, sugar free and naturally gluten free too!

Ingredient Notes

Ingredients needed to make sugar free chocolate pudding.

Monk Fruit Sweetener – This calorie free sweetener closely resembles regular sugar in taste, appearance and texture . You will need the granulated version for this pudding recipe.

Unsweetened chocolate – You can use any brand of unsweetened baking squares. Make sure to check the label to ensure no added sugars or flours.

Heavy whipping cream – We make homemade whipped cream by beating the heavy cream into stiff peaks. Folded in with melted chocolate and butter, it creates beautifully thick and creamy mousse!

Vanilla – A little goes a long way. Pure vanilla extract enhances the deep chocolate flavor with its rich fragrant taste.

Tips and Tricks

  • Whisk frequently while heating the chocolate, butter and eggs. When the mixture easily coats the back of a spoon, it’s ready to come off of the heat and be blended with the whipped cream.
  • Chill the pudding for at least 2 hours before serving. This gives it time for the thick mixture to set. The flavor is so much better when it’s nice and cold, too!
  • Divide the pudding into ramekins before chilling for easy storage and serving. It can also be chilled in one container and spooned into individual bowls when ready to serve.
