Dairy Free Chocolate Chia Pudding

After posting our chocolate chia pudding, we were wondering if we make it dairy, would it taste just as good. To find out, I went about and made the chocolate pudding using just coconut milk alone. The result was quite satisfactory.

Didn’t mean to brag but I found that keto-friendly food is not that hard to make. When I first tried ketogenic diet I thought I wouldn’t last a week. To my surprise, most of regular food can be adapted to be keto-friendly and I must admit that most taste really good. The reason I found cooking keto food easy is that you can splurge on the goodies such as butter, cream and cheese, all the ingredients we were told to have in moderation. You have to admit they really elevate the flavor of any dish. Hence, we never had trouble making delicious food on keto. Then comes the challenge, can we make our keto food dairy free? The answer is hell, yes!

Take our chocolate chia pudding for example. The tried and true recipe we have posted is incredibly delicious.  I mean no disrespect but chia pudding is probably the most no-brainer (if there’s such thing) dessert of the lot. But I mean that in a good way. The making of our chia pudding couldn’t be simpler.

I have found a no brainer easy way for our chia pudding. In this dairy free version we use only coconut milk for the liquid part. Pour it into a jar or shaker bottle then add chia seeds, cocoa powder and sweetener. Then shake it like there’s no tomorrow. All ingredients should be well blended. on the off chance that you still have lumps of cocoa powder left, simple use a fork or spoon to break them down. Since our pudding consists of only coconut milk, the mixture would be liquidy when chilled. You need a little bit of grass fed gelatin to help it set better. Without cream, this chocolate chia pudding still taste quite rich and smooth.
