Dairy-Free Thin Mint Chocolate Pudding

For those who avoid dairy products, there is good news – almost all dairy products can be replaced with coconut based products! In this recipe, coconut milk takes the role that is traditionally filled by milk and perfects a dairy-free thin mint chocolate pudding.

Many people are step away from dairy based recipes for various reasons – lack of availability of high-quality raw unpasteurized products, contamination with antibiotics, the use of growth hormones in cattle, inhumane and environmentally destructive factory farming practices, and of course INTOLERANCE to dairy.

The process to make a dairy-free pudding is easy.

Begin by gently warming the coconut milk and cacao paste in a saucepan over low heat, continue until the paste melts.

Whisk all the other ingredients (except the gelatin) and continue heating until the “milk” thickens up.

Now remove the pot from the burner and whisk in the gelatin. Let your delicious dairy-free chocolate mixture sit to thicken for a few more minutes and then serve it warm or pop it in the fridge and leave it to chill.

Serve dairy-free chocolate pudding in individual bowls or fill a gluten-free, low-carb pie crust with this minty cream.

    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.
