Rich, super decadent paleo and keto chocolate pudding that requires no cooking. It’s truly hard to believe that it only has two ingredients!
Yes, this paleo and keto chocolate pudding has just two ingredients – coconut milk and bittersweet chocolate! It is ridiculously easy to make, and the result is decadent and rich, with a velvety mouthfeel.
I love chocolate pudding. Loved it as a kid, love it now. It’s such a classic comfort food. But most chocolate pudding recipes require quite a bit of work. And they contain milk, which I wanted to avoid in this recipe.
This paleo and keto chocolate pudding solves both issues. It is dairy-free, and it’s so easy to make. The best part? It’s delicious and super rich. Especially the keto version made with healthy super dark chocolate. No one will believe that this amazing keto chocolate pudding has so few ingredients!
Keto chocolate pudding (3 ingredients)
My original recipe uses coconut milk and 70% Lindt chocolate. Want an even richer chocolate experience that’s also lower in carbs? If you don’t mind using non-nutritive sweeteners, here’s another version for this chocolate pudding that I like even better.
Use Lindt 90% chocolate instead of 70%. Add 1/4 cup xylitol or Swerve to the chocolate and coconut milk (or the equivalent in stevia) and heat it all together. I make this keto version with a teaspoon of stevia glycerite (which lacks the bitter aftertaste typical to stevia), and it’s absolutely amazing.
Is this a make-ahead recipe?
Absolutely! I do appreciate the fact that this keto chocolate pudding is a dessert I can make in advance. It makes life so much easier when you don’t have to worry about making dessert when your guests are already there! You can also keep leftovers, covered and refrigerated, for up to 4 days.
Is this a healthy recipe?
I think it is. Dark chocolate is very healthy. Some even call it a superfood. And coconut milk is a healthy choice as well. It’s interesting that it was once considered unhealthy because it contains saturated fats. It seems that now it’s the opposite, with many considering coconut products as very healthy thanks to their unique fat profile.

Enjoyed this paleo and keto chocolate pudding? Great! Another amazingly delicious and healthy chocolate pudding that I make quite often is this tasty banana chocolate pudding. It’s healthy and paleo, but obviously not keto. And this classic dark chocolate mousse is amazing. It reminds me of the wonderful chocolate mousse we were served in a little French bistro in Paris, years ago.
