Curb your sugar cravings with this keto pudding recipe!
Ever since I had Storm, I’ve had a bit more of a sweet tooth. I’ve never really cared much about sweets – gimme chips over chocolate any day – but once I started breastfeeding, I just had sugar cravings.
Now, I’m no longer breastfeeding. It was a long, drawn-out saga that I felt really guilty about but after severe tongue and lip ties, lactation consultants, exclusively pumping around the clock, I just couldn’t do it.
Not sure how I got off on a tangent about my breastfeeding struggles here.
Anyway! So when I was breastfeeding I wanted ALL. THE. FOOD. It was amazing. I ate all day long and loved it. But I also ate my fair share of “paleo” safe treats and developed a bit of a sugar habit.
This does not agree with my gut. Eating too much sugar, even natural sugars like maple syrup and honey, makes me feel like crap.
But stevia? I freaking love stevia.
Why you’ll love this keto pistachio pudding recipe:
There are so many reasons to love this easy pistachio pudding! First off, it’s sugar-free!
Stevia is a leaf and it doesn’t spike your blood sugar. It doesn’t feed bad gut bacteria. It doesn’t make me break out like I’m 13 again.
And I love cooking with it. Except you don’t even have to cook this keto pudding recipe!
Then, it’s paleo, grain-free, dairy-free and free from any food colorings which are heavily present in many pistachio desserts.
Give this keto pudding recipe a try. It’s perfect for when you are craving something sweet, want a lil’ treat or just want to indulge a bit.
Tips for making pistachio pudding from scratch:
- To get a nice and smooth pistachio pudding, make sure to use a high-speed blender, like a Vitamix.
- Start with half the amount of stevia and work your way up, stopping once you find your pudding sweet enough.
- Go for a high-quality, pure and organic vanilla extract, like this one!
Variations on this keto pudding recipe:
- As a keto-approved alternative to stevia, I’d recommend monkfruit sweetener.
- A drop of almond-essence tastes really nice in this pudding recipe.
- For a layered paleo pudding, scoop half of the pudding out of the mixer after blending and blend the rest with 2 tbsp of cocoa powder. If it is to thick, add a tiny splash of coffee or coconut milk.
