If you’re a dessert enthusiast like me, you’ll probably appreciate a sweet treat that doesn’t sabotage your low-carb lifestyle.

That’s where this delightful Keto Mint Chocolate Pudding comes into play. It’s the perfect blend of creamy, chocolaty goodness with a refreshing minty twist. Plus, it’s incredibly easy to whip up.

Let’s dive into the delicious details.

Why You’ll Love This Dish

Before we get into the nitty-gritty of making this low-carb Mint Chocolate Pudding, let me share why this dessert is an absolute game-changer:

  • Keto-Friendly: It’s perfect for those following a low-carb or keto diet. Say goodbye to sugar cravings without sacrificing flavor.
  • Decadently Delicious: Creamy coconut milk, rich cacao, and a hint of mint come together for a flavor explosion in every bite.
  • Quick and Easy: You’ll be amazed at how simple it is to prepare. No need for complex cooking techniques or hours in the kitchen.

This dessert is my secret weapon for staying on track, and it might just become yours too!

Now that the idea tantalizes you, let’s gather what you need to make this mouthwatering treat.

Ingredients You Need

Here’s what you’ll require to create this Keto Mint Chocolate Pudding, along with a few handy notes:

  • Coconut Milk: Opt for a good quality canned coconut milk without added sugars or fillers. You’ll love the creamy texture it brings.
  • Raw Cacao Paste: This is your chocolatey base. It’s less processed than cocoa powder, ensuring a rich chocolate flavor.
  • Cacao Powder: To intensify that chocolatey goodness.
  • Keto Sugar Substitute: I use Lakanto’s classic sweetener.
  • Vanilla Extract: It adds a lovely depth of flavor. Use a high-quality one.
  • Spirulina Powder: This is your secret weapon for extra minerals. It’s optional, but it gives a fun twist.
  • Peppermint Spirits: The star of the show, bringing that refreshing minty kick.
  • Grass-Fed Beef Gelatin: This is what gives the pudding its smooth, pudding-like texture.

Now that you’ve got your ingredients sorted, let’s dive into the simple steps to create this delightful dessert.

How to Make It

  1. Warm Coconut Milk and Cacao Paste: In a small saucepan, gently warm the coconut milk and cacao paste over low heat until the paste is fully melted.
  2. Add Flavor and Sweetness: Stir in the cacao powder, keto sugar substitute, vanilla extract, and spirulina powder (if using). Keep it over low heat and whisk until the mixture slightly thickens. This should take about 10 minutes in total.
  3. Incorporate Gelatin: Remove the mixture from heat and whisk in the grass-fed beef gelatin. Let it sit for 10 minutes to thicken.
  4. Serve and Enjoy: Transfer your pudding into individual ramekins or bowls. You can serve it warm or chill it in the refrigerator until you’re ready to indulge.

What to Serve with It

Now, you might be wondering what pairs perfectly with this mint chocolate pudding.

Here are a few delightful ideas:

  • Whipped Cream: Top your pudding with a dollop of keto-friendly whipped cream for an extra layer of decadence.
  • Fresh Berries: A handful of fresh raspberries or strawberries add a refreshing contrast to the rich chocolate and mint.
  • Crushed Nuts: For some delightful crunch, sprinkle crushed almonds or walnuts on top.
  • Dark Chocolate Shavings: Shave a bit of dark chocolate over your pudding for an elegant finishing touch.

This sugar-free chocolate treat is proof that you can have your dessert and eat it, too, while staying true to your low-carb lifestyle. 

It’s a pudding that satisfies your taste buds and keto goals. So, why wait? Give it a try and savor the sweet side of a ketogenic diet!

  1. Hi Jessica. I noticed most of your recipes use dairy alternatives such as coconut milk/oil. My children dislike coconut. I was wondering as a general rule can I sub them for dairy equivalents such as butter/cream/milk? Also in this recipe would it be best to sub milk or cream for the coconut milk? Lastly I was wondering if you have a recipe for a sweet pie crust. Thanks.

    • Yes, subbing for equal equivalents is an excellent way to go about it! Generally, half and half will be a good sub for coconut milk. Milk is usually a bit high for keto macros (but great for children). I don’t have a sweet pie crust up on the blog but there are a number of options in The Ultimate Guide to Low-Carb Baking.
