Low Carb Chocolate Ricotta Pudding

Shares

Sometimes it pays to play with your food. I invented this low carb chocolate ricotta pudding recipe when I had nothing for dessert and needed a quick treat. I first tried it with just ricotta, cream cheese, sweetener, and vanilla extract but I was underwhelmed. Then I added a little cocoa powder and some instant coffee and voila! It was like instant chocolate pudding!

I had about half a cup of ricotta so I downsized the recipe. No espresso. Added a cup of frozen berries. Turned out great but a little sweet given berries and sweetener.

Hi Carolyn — I’m on this immediately. Your recipes are central to my keto regime, and I can’t thank you enough. May I ask, how many servings did you divide this into to get the nutrition numbers you’re showing?
