These chocolate pudding pots are so easy to make and can be whipped up in less than five minutes - they are free from refined sugar and high in protein and are served in a jar which is how all the kids on Pinterest seem to serve all food items these days.
This recipe makes one serving so there are no tempting leftovers (I use a set of American cups for measurements but there's no need to be super precise with this):
Coconut oil - half a teaspoon
Cacao - two (generously) heaped teaspoons
Maca* - half a teaspoon
Sweet Freedom** - one teaspoon
Almond milk - one tablespoon
Egg whites - one tablespoon (I use Two Chicks which I talk about here)
In a jar or mug (I used a jar of coconut oil which had a tiny amount left) combine the coconut oil, sweetener of choice, cacao powder, maca powder and almond milk. Microwave for 20 seconds so that it's easier to combine everything and mix really well - it should look like melted chocolate. Add the egg whites and mix again. Make sure that there is a good inch of spare jar for the mixture to rise. Pop in the microwave for 40 seconds (keep an eye on it depending on how powerful your microwave is) - when the pudding has risen fully give it another 10 second blast and you're done! Leave to cool for a minute or so and dig in (mini spoon = maximum enjoyment)!
*Optional - maca is a Peruvian powder which helps with energy levels, it has a malty taste and I love putting it in porridge, smoothies and healthy desserts.
**Or agave, maple syrup or honey - any natural sweetener will work. I like Sweet Freedom which is made from fruit sugars and is sold in Waitrose - it's very sweet so a little goes a long way.
Have you tried raw chocolate?
