Baobab and Chocolate Sugar Free Pudding
I was pregnant with my firstborn and although I thought my cravings were pretty tame, my husband thought I had gone mad. Toward the end, all I wanted was pudding. Just pudding nothing else. Problem was, I wanted a sugar free pudding that was Trim Healthy Mama approved. I even remember asking the Facebook groups, trying to find one that tasted like the pudding cups that come in plastic containers.
Nothing was satisfying my craving.
Sadly, I never found anything that was quite satisfactory. Let's be real though, sometimes those pregnancy cravings, just can't be met.
Last week I was experimenting with a sugar-free pudding recipe and I wanted to go back three years and offer this recipe to 'old Rachael.' It might have just been the ticket I was looking for. It is silky, creamy, decadent, and hits the spot!
Does Sugar Free Pudding have Carbs?
It really will depend on the recipe. This sugar-free pudding has minimum carbs as it uses mostly fat-based. It should have around 5 net carbs and be perfectly on plan with Trim Healthy Mama!

Is this Recipe Dairy Free?
It can be! Because it uses coconut milk, you can make it into a dairy-free version, by eliminating the whipped cream garnish.
Don't worry it still tastes delicious on its own! I originally left the whipped cream off, but it just looked better for pictures with it on! So, it really does not need the whipped cream. It can be entirely dairy-free.
What is Sugar Free Pudding Sweetened with?
Most sugar-free puddings that you find at the store, will have artificial sweeteners that are less than ideal for you. Especially if you are a THM-er or living a keto lifestyle, you will want to read labels extra carefully.
This pudding uses Trim Healthy Mama's Gentle Sweet, which is completely natural made from the Stevia plant and on-plan with both the Keto and THM lifestyle. Occasionally, someone will tell me that Stevia is an artificial sweetener. There are some artificial sweeteners that use a small amount of stevia so they can claim it on their label, Stevia itself is not artificial.
Gentle Sweet is a combination of Non-GMO Erythritol and Organic Stevia Extract Powder. It is incredibly well made and is what I will be sweetening my sugar-free pudding with.
Can you Eat Sugar-Free Pudding on Keto?
As stated previously, most sugar-free puddings from the store are jammed-packed with artificial sweeteners.
If you would like to enjoy a sugar-free pudding on Keto, you will most likely need to create or make your own.
Ingredients of the Choclate and Baobab Pudding
- 1 can coconut milk (full fat)
- 2 tbsp cocoa powder
- 2 tbsp baobab powder
- ⅓-1/2 cup Gentle Sweet

If you are making this dairy-free, be sure to eliminate the whipped cream topping.
This will keep in the fridge for at least two weeks.
