Dairy free, Keto friendly chocolate pudding made with only 5 whole food ingredients and no alternative sweeteners, only fruit! Legal for gut healing diets like GAPS too.
Warm the coconut milk on the stove in a medium-sized pot until just smooth. Remove pot from heat.
Beat the eggs in a medium-sized bowl until fully blended.
Add the date syrup and cocoa powder with the beaten eggs and mix well until smooth.
Pour the egg, cocoa, date syrup mixture into the pot with the coconut milk.
Put the pot back on the stove and bring to a boil, stirring frequently.
When the mixture just starts to bubble, turn the heat down to medium-low and continue stirring for 2-4 minutes until the pudding thickens slightly.
Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla.
Let sit for a few minutes, then serve warm.
After cooling, refrigerate in a covered glass bowl.
Homemade coconut milk is the best option for this recipe.
However, feel free to use whole coconut milk in a can or carton in a pinch.
