Chocolate is the weakness in our house.  The other night we were craving a quick dessert and I am always trying to find new ways to incorporate grass-fed gelatin into our diets. So I whipped up a quick pudding and it was loved by everyone in our house, especially my two year old!  The ingredients are pretty simple and can be easily found at any grocery store (with the exception of the grass-fed gelatin) Our favorite is Vital Proteins.  If you need a quick chocolate fix, try this one out!

Paleo Chocolate Pudding with Grass-Fed Gelatin
 
Ingredients
  • 1 can full-fat coconut milk
  • 2 c. unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 c. gluten free, dairy free chocolate chips or dark chocolate chunks
  • 3 Tbsp high-quality gelatin
  • 2 Tbsp. coconut sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • Heat the coconut milk on medium-low in a heavy-bottomed pot. You want to warm it enough to dissolve the gelatin but not boil. Add the chocolate and whisk constantly until it melts.
  • Once the chocolate has melted, whisk in the gelatin by slowly pouring as you whisk. If you just dump the whole tablespoon in, it'll get clumpy.
  • Turn off the heat and whisk in the vanilla extract.
  • Pour into your desired glasses or cups and chill for at least 2 hours or until set.
Instructions
  1. Heat the coconut milk and almond milk on medium heat, until warm.
  2. Add in the cocoa powder and chocolate chips until melted.
  3. Once the chocolate has melted, remove from heat and whisk in the gelatin and vanilla.
  4. Gelatin will clump if you don't pour it in slowly, I cheat by pouring my entire pudding mixture into my vita-mix and blending on low.
  5. Pour into pint sized glass and chill in the fridge for at least one hour or until it sets up.
