1 can coconut milk (full fat or lite)
3T chia seeds
1 egg yolk (I often use 2, to get more nourishment into my family members)
1/4c cocoa powder plus eight drops stevia OR 1/4c carob powder
1/2t orange oil
Heat coconut milk. Whisk in all other ingredients one by one, waiting to add gelatin until milk steams slightly. Continue to cook and stir until mixture thickens slightly. Bon appetit!
Note on September 23rd: I LOVE to double this recipe and put it in 1/2c jars. That makes a great pudding-to-go. I like to put the hot jars of pudding in a cold water bath so they seal, as this helps them keep (they must be refrigerated, of course). A double batch yields nine jars, which are great packed in lunches.

Note on 10/4/14: I most often make this with full fat coconut milk and carob, and add an extra egg yolk. It is delish this way and I make it more for my family than myself, though I occasionally will have one. Usually I get four servings per batch. To satisfy my own curiosity, I ran the numbers on this and found that the nutrition facts, served this way, are 23g fat, 4.23g protein, and a whopping 6.9 usable carbs. If you are a THM, try not to add any other carb source to this S meal, but please do make sure to add another source of protein.
