Today I am sharing with you an easy Chocolate Pudding recipe.  It only has four ingredients and just takes about 10 minutes to cook. Plus the pudding is divided out into portions so you don’t have to worry about overindulging.

Let’s face it…we’re all busy.  Making good decisions in regards to our diets can often be clouded by the fact that our time is limited.  Every Friday I will share with you a recipe or technique that uses 5 Ingredients or fewer.  The idea is to show you recipes that are easy to prepare and versatile for all of us that don’t have time to whip up a complicated meal during the week.

The recipes will include 5 ingredients or fewer, but there are a few ingredients that are considered “free” ingredients that you probably use every day and are already in your kitchen.  The “free” items are water, salt, black pepper, and cooking oil.  These items may be used in recipes and won’t count toward the ingredient total.  I will also include some optional items that would be great to add if you have them on hand but you don’t need to make a special trip to the store if you’re all out.

    Made this tonight and did use whipping cream instead of coconut milk. It was insanely hard to just stick to eating 1 serving since it was so freakin’ good. Really easy to make too. My new favorite low carb dessert!

    This looks great! We love pudding in our house and I just hate making “food” from a box. (I italicize because food from a box cannot usually be considered food, at least not in my book!) I will definitely try this recipe! I think I even have a can of coconut milk that I have been wondering what to do with! Thanks for cleaning my cupboards!
