  • Try this recipe:

    2 tablespoons cocoa, sifted
    1/8 teaspoon salt
    3/4-1 teaspoon xanthan gum *
    1/2 cup heavy cream
    1/2 cup water
    1/4 cup granulated Splenda or equivalent liquid Splenda
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla

    In a 4-cup glass measure or medium microwaveable bowl, whisk together the cocoa, salt, xanthan gum and Splenda (if using granulated). Combine the cream and water; gradually mix about half of the liquid into the dry mixture, whisking until completely moistened. Gradually whisk in the rest of the liquid and the liquid Splenda, if using. Microwave on HIGH about 3 minutes, whisking briskly about every 30 seconds or so until thickened. Watch closely so it doesn't boil over. Whisk in the vanilla; pour into 2 small dessert dishes and chill well.

    No sugar, very low carbs!

  • Dairy is very constipating, and Spenda is very toxic.

    Avocado Pudding
    2 avocado's peeled and pit removed
    1 tablespoon Coco Powder
    1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
    1/4 cup maple Syrup
    2 dates soaked (op)
    blend in blender till smooth

  • * If you plan to eat this plain, 3/4 teaspoon xanthan gum is fine for a soft-set pudding, but it you want to use the pudding in a layered dessert, I suggest using a full teaspoon. This is very good once it has chilled, but the consistency is slightly different than regular cooked pudding. The xanthan gum makes it a little bit "gluey", but it's not unpleasant. Also, the pudding doesn't get a skin on it like regular cornstarch pudding does.
