Nourishing Chocolate Pudding (S)

This chocolate pudding feels like a huge treat, yet doesn't contain any sugar, dairy or gluten. With nearly 10g protein, it is a balanced meal replacement if you ever need to be able to grab a breakfast-to-go out of the fridge, and it makes a wonderful nourishing snack that will keep you going for a few hours. It also makes great pudding pops-- a treat I am nostalgic for after family vacations in the early 1990s. :)

Here's how I made it:

1 can Thai Kitchen light coconut milk (13.66 oz)
1 can pure water (reuse coconut milk can and skip the measuring cup)
5 T "sweet chocolate" (recipe below)
1/2 t salt
1 T vanilla
4 T almond meal
2 T unflavored gelatin powder
4 egg yolks

Heat and whisk all but last two ingredients in a saucepan until steamy. Gradually sprinkle gelatin powder in while whisking. Crack eggs and put yolks in a glass or metal measuring cup (reserve whites fpr another use). Pour some of hot cocoa mixture into egg yolks and whisk thoroughly, then whisk back into saucepan. Continue stirring until mixture is glossy and uniform. Pour into four 1c jelly jars. Add lids and cool in a sinkful of water. Jars will seal but must be stored in the refrigerator. Bon appetit!
