keto chocolate pudding

If you’re a lover of creamy and decadent chocolate pudding, then you’re going to absolutely love this keto chocolate pudding, whether or not you’re following a keto diet!

This sugar free chocolate pudding is entirely dairy free, vegan, Keto, egg free, low sugar, avocado free, nut free, and no gelatin!

But how?! Well, we’re using just 3 really simple plant based ingredients to create the ultimate chocolate pudding!

How many carbs are in this sugar free chocolate pudding?

You’ll be shocked to know that this chocolate pudding contains just 0.2 grams of sugar (naturally occurring in the coconut) and just 7 net carbs.


We’re really keeping this sugar free chocolate pudding extremely simple. Seriously, just 3 ingredients! And NO, one of them is NOT avocado!

This chocolate pudding comes together with just the following:

  • Mooala Keto Mylk: this is my latest dairy free find that I absolutely love. It’s super thick and creamy yet sugar free, making it the perfect pudding liquid. However, if you can’t find it, you can sub in full fat coconut cream from a can!
  • Sugar free chocolate: look for 100% dark chocolate or chocolate chips. I use Pascha Organics, but Lily’s Sweets is also a viable option for this keto pudding!
  • Arrowroot powder: also known as arrowroot starch, this is a thickener that acts much like cornstarch! Except it’s entirely corn free! We’re just using a tablespoon here to keep this low carb.

That’s truly it. No gelatin, no artificial sugar free sweeteners. And yet I think you’ll be shocked at how delicious this sugar free pudding cooks up to be!

How to make keto chocolate pudding from scratch

As I mentioned above, this chocolate pudding is super easy and quick to make, while still not cutting any short cuts around taste and texture!

The full instructions and measurements are found down below in the recipe card. However, let’s go over the key steps here!

To make a secretly low carb and vegan chocolate pudding:

  1. Heat the mylk: you’ll simply bring the coconut cream to a boil in a large pot. Once boiling, you’ll reduce the heat to medium.
  2. Melt the chocolate into the mylk: add in your favorite keto-friendly chocolate and stir it into the liquid until it completely dissolves.
  3. Make the pudding paste: next, you’ll remove some liquid from the pot and place it into a separate bowl. This will be where we make our paste from the arrowroot. This is a fun trick I learned from my friend, Christina over at Addicted to Dates in her new cookbook! You simply mix the arrowroot into the reserved liquid until it forms a paste. This prevents the arrowroot from clumping and creating “pudding skin” (such a weird term!).
  4. Stir the pudding until thick: add the paste back into the main pot, and stir until the chocolate pudding becomes thick.
  5. Remove from heat: pour the chocolate pudding into a bowl and let it cool to room temperature. Then chill the pudding for a few hours in the fridge and you’re set!

How simple was that?! This is truly my favorite vegan pudding recipe because it’s just so easy and takes no time at all! The hardest part is the chill time 😉

What if I don’t need this vegan chocolate pudding to be sugar free?

Not a problem! Not everyone wants a sugar free chocolate pudding. Maybe you just want a low sugar option, or even just a vegan chocolate pudding.

If that’s the case, you can simply use your favorite vegan chocolate- sugar or no sugar!

Then you just have a deliciously creamy and low sugar vegan chocolate pudding rather than a keto chocolate pudding.

Keto-friendly chocolate pudding toppings

Of course, this sugar free pudding is amazing on its own. It’s super rich and creamy; not to mention, very decadent.

However, you can also spice it up a bit by adding on top some keto-friendly pudding toppings!

  • Berries: adding berries is a great way to add a bit of sweetness while still keeping this pudding low sugar. Sliced strawberries or blueberries, even raspberries or blackberries are amazing on top of this pudding!
  • Nuts & seeds: to add a bit more fat to this pudding, and a bit of a crunch, you can top this keto chocolate pudding with some slivered raw almonds, crushed hazelnuts (so then it’s like a sugar free Nutella!), or even some pumpkin or sunflower seeds if you’re nut free.
  • Coconut cream: to keep this chocolate pudding entirely dairy free and vegan, while still being keto, you can top your pudding cups with some whipped or plain coconut cream! Add a dusting of cacao powder for presentation 🙂

This super creamy and thick keto chocolate pudding is made from just 3 simple vegan ingredients and absolutely no avocado! Nut free, dairy free, and Paleo, this rich and decadent low carb chocolate pudding is a perfect sugar free dessert!


  • 3 cups Mooala Keto Mylk (or an unsweetened low carb dairy free milk)
  • 1/2 cup 100% dark chocolate (or keto friendly dark chocolate)*
  • 1 tbsp arrowroot powder or starch


  1. In a large pot, bring the keto mylk to a boil.
  2. Once boiling, reduce the heat to medium, and add in the chocolate. Stir the chocolate into the milk until it completely dissolves.
  3. Remove about 1/4 cup of the liquid and place it into a separate bowl. Add in the arrowroot powder and mix until it forms almost a paste. 
  4. Add the paste back to the chocolate milk mixture, and reduce the heat to medium-low. Stir the mixture until it thickens, about 5-7 minutes. It should be still like liquid but feel a bit thicker than usual (think like coconut cream).
  5. Pour the chocolate pudding mixture into a large bowl or separate serving glasses. Allow the mixture to cool completely at room temperature (about 15 minutes), then place the pudding jars into the fridge to chill for at least 4 hours (preferably overnight).
  6. When ready to serve, top with coconut cream and cacao powder. Enjoy!
