Yield: 2 cups / 480ml)
Serving Size: 1/2 cup
1 + 1/4 cups (300ml) unsweetened cashew milk (OR other nut milk)
1/2 cup (120ml) heavy whipping cream (or coconut cream)
1/4 cup (30g) unsweetened cacao powder (dutch processed is best)
6 Tbsp (60g) keto bulk sweetener (powdered erythritol, Swerve, allulose, tagatose, etc.)
1 tsp (5ml) vanilla extract
1/2 tsp fine sea salt (OR 1 tsp coarse salt)
PICK ONE AS THE THICKENER:
3/4 tsp guar gum (OR 1/4 tsp xanthan gum)
2 tsp powdered gelatin (soaked in 2 Tbsp cold water beforehand)
NOTE ON KETO SWEETENER SWAPS:
As of 2019, it seems that allulose is not easily available outside of the USA, so try tagatose (almost identical to allulose) which is available on iHerb in most countries, linked below!

1. Heat together all the ingredients except the thickener of choice over medium heat, whisking and bringing them to a simmer.
2. If using the guar gum as the thickener, sprinkle it over in a thin layer and whisk immediately to combine. Remove the pudding from the heat and cool to room temperature before transferring to an air-tight container and chilling for a few hours. The pudding will thicken as it cools.
3. TIf using the gelatin, after it has soaked for at least 5 minutes, add it to the simmering liquid and whisk until melted fully. Let cool fully as instructed in Step 2, then either whip with an electric mixer or put in a bullet blender and pulse briefly to smooth out the texture. Let chill again briefly before serving. See the video above for a comparison of the two texture options depending on the thickener you choose.
