High Protein High Fiber Chocolate Pudding - a healthy chocolate pudding recipe with cottage cheese, chia seeds, coconut milk and raw honey! #healthydesserts, #cleaneating

 

Looking for a healthy chocolate pudding with no refined sugar and starches? Look no further than this High Protein Chocolate Pudding!

This easy recipe for healthy chocolate pudding started out with me experimenting with one of my new favorite dairy products out there.

I ordered raw and grass-fed cottage cheese from a local farm and it’s the best cottage cheese I’ve ever had. It eventually inspired the creation of this super-healthy high protein chocolate pudding recipe.

I used most of the cottage cheese to make a lasagna (I use it in place of ricotta because it has a higher protein content). But I still had a ton leftover.

So, I thought it would be interesting to make a protein packed, high fiber chocolate pudding with grass-fed cottage cheese. Although I first wasn’t sure how it would turn out, I ended up loving it. So will you!

This healthy chocolate pudding recipe features grass-fed cottage cheese, chia seeds, coconut milk, and raw honey!

The cottage cheese adds a wonderful creaminess and a slight tanginess to the chocolate pudding, which makes it utterly addictive.

Other than cottage cheese, I also added the following healthy ingredients:

  • Chia seeds, for added protein, omega 3 and the perfect gel-like pudding consistency.
  • Coconut milk instead of cow milk, as I really like the nutty flavor and richness it adds.
  • Raw honey as an all-natural sweetener.

Tips for the perfect healthy chocolate pudding:

  • Note that this high-protein healthy chocolate pudding is a bit thinner than regular or store-bought chocolate pudding. If you’d like a thicker pudding, add less liquid to the chia seeds.
  • You can soak the chia seeds in water instead of coconut milk but the pudding will be less creamy.
  • For blending the ingredients,  I recommend a high-speed blender, like a Vitamix to get the smoothest consistency possible.

Variations on this recipe:

  • For a Mexican chocolate pudding, add 1/2 tsp of Ceylon cinnamon, some organic vanilla essence, and a pinch of chili powder.
  • Adding a pinch of salt to the ingredients brings out the chocolate flavor some more.
  • Feel free to sprinkle the chilled pudding with some chopped nuts, or serve it with some berries, whipped cream or coconut cream on top.

Is this healthy chocolate pudding recipe good for meal prep?

Yes, it is! You can double the recipe and store the leftover pudding in an airtight container in the fridge. For make-ahead breakfasts, fill it into individual dessert glasses, cover, and chill.

The pudding should be consumed within 3 days.

 

I don’t eat a ton of dessert, but it’s awesome to know that when I do, it’s super healthy. I am sure you will love this healthy chocolate pudding recipe!

  1. How many servings does this make? Just one? I’m looking for something I can make on Sunday and take to work throughout the week. Does this store well?

      I’d say you could do 3 servings per the recipe, and it’d last fine for that many days.

  2. I made this recipe with low expectations. I don’t like cottage cheese or most recipes that claim to be a healthy alternative to an unhealthy food, but this turned out awesome!!! I had to comment becuase I am blown away by how good it is. I’m eating it right now with a bunch of bananas and strawberries cut up on top. Thank you for sharing!
