Ingredients

Chocolate pudding
  • 4 oz. 110 g sugar-free dark chocolate
  • 1¼ cups 300 ml unsweetened coconut cream
  • 1 tbsp 1 tbsp orange zest
  • 2 2 egg yolkegg yolks
  • ½ tsp ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch 1 pinch salt
Garnish
  • 7 oz. 200 g fresh raspberries
  • 1 tbsp 1 tbsp orange zest
  • fresh mint sprigs

Instructions

Instructions are for 4 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler.
  2. Whisk coconut cream with the grated orange zest, vanilla extract, salt and egg yolks.
  3. Add some tablespoons of the coconut mixture to the melted chocolate and combine.
  4. Combine with the rest, spoon out into dessert dishes or ramekins and keep in the refrigerator for at least an hour before serving.
  5. Garnish with raspberries, orange zest and fresh mint.

Tip!

Coconut cream is found in cans, often located in the Asian food section of the grocery. Read the label and be careful that you don't buy coconut milk or "cream of coconut" which is processed with sugar.

One medium orange typically has about 2 to 3 tablespoons of orange zest, so this recipe will call for two oranges. If you don't have a zester, you can grate orange zest on a cheese grater or use a vegetable peeler. If using a cheese grater peeler, you might want to then cut the wider strips with a sharp knife to make them more thin and delicate.

If you prefer a slightly sweeter taste, microwave the raspberries for about 30 seconds, until raspberry juice forms. Then garnish the pudding with raspberries and the natural juices.

    That's not necessary, just whisk to combine the ingredients.
