Chocolate Pudding


For some time I’ve wanted to make a pudding that is really rich and has body. This stuff does the trick. And…it’s pretty easy.

Chocolate Pudding (1)

   I threw in more eggs than you would normally have in a pudding, in an effort to thicken it more. Using whole eggs helps add to the bulk of the pudding, and ups the protein level quite a bit, too.

   You can pour it into a pie crust, I used my Graham Cracker recipe, or just eat it straight out of a bowl. This is a pretty big batch, so it will make too much for one pie. You can just eat the rest of the pudding topped with a little whipped cream and sprinkled with a few nuts. I like it that way just as well (maybe even better – it makes a delicious snack!) as in a pie crust.

Chocolate Pudding (2)

Chocolate Pudding
  1. 3 cup Water
  2. 1 cup Cream
  3. 8 Eggs
  4. 1 cup Cocoa Powder
  5. 1 1/2 tsp. Xantham Gum
  6. 1 1/2 tsp. Stevia
  7. 2 tsp. Vanilla
  8. 1/2 tsp. Salt
  1. 1. Add two cups of water and the cream to a large kettle and heat over medium heat.
  2. 2. Blend the eggs and the one cup of water until creamy, add to the heating water/cream mixture. Make sure to whisk constantly, you don't want a grainy pudding.
  3. 3. Sift in your cocoa powder, and add the stevia, vanilla and salt.
  4. 4. Once the pudding is fairly hot sprinkle in your xantham gum, and let it simmer for just a little bit. It doesn't take long for it to thicken. If you do have a grainy pudding just dump it into your blender, and the graininess will come right out, turning into a beautifully silky pudding.
  5. 5. Pour into prepared pie crust immediately. Set in the fridge to chill.
  1. 6 1/2 cups


    1. This is regular Stevia (no additives). I cook for a large family, so I don’t use packets, but I would reccommend just measuring the Stevia, then you’ll know how much is in one packet. If you’re comfortable with just dumping and tasting you could do that, too. 🙂

  1. What kind of Stevia are you using? The one I have is very, very strong and one little donk goes a long way. I’m not sure if I should use the same amount of the Stevia I have as you used?

    1. Hi Rebecca, I use the Now brand Stevia. One tsp. of Stevia equals one cup of sugar, so yes, a little goes a long way. There is a lot of cocoa powder in this recipe, so it takes a lot. You can start with less and keep adding until it’s sweet enough if you’re still not sure that it won’t be too sweet. 🙂
