I stumbled across this recipe on both Facebook and Pinterest and decide to make it for a get-together with non low carbers… Everyone LOVED it! If someone else had made this and told me it was low carb I would NOT have believed them! The only things I did differently in mine was I subbed in Splenda as I did not have stevia glycerine, and split the dessert into 2-8 inch pie pans.

4] I powder my vanilla beans with another powder that’s easy to work with[I use aribinogalactin or coral calcium, etc.] but even just monk fruit or stevia but i usually add stevia separately…keeping in a small jar with a bitty scoop, there no worries about oils and water not mixing as with most vanilla. I grind my beans in a coffee grinder. This vanilla is to die for…


It should firm up over night. Honestly, Andrea, I received so many complaints about the cornstarch (arrowroot) powder not being low carb that I reduced the amount by 1 teaspoon. Yes, the whipped cream should be spread very carefully over the pudding. Refrigerating over night should set it. Please, please, let me know if it doesn’t. I hope the change in the pudding recipe doesn’t ruin your dessert and Christmas. Let me know. Have a nice holiday. -Kim
Hi, My doctor strongly recommends staying away from erythritol. I notice that you use it in some of your reciepes. When I fist discovered it. It seemed too good to be true as it was so easy to bake without using sugar. Pure monk fruit which is very sweet without an aftertaste is just a powder and doesn’t have the benefits of bulk or granulation needed in baking. If anyone finds something great without erythritol, let us know.
Hi Stephanie. First, if the chocolate pudding isn’t SUPER thick tomorrow after it sets, then don’t add the almond milk. Keep it as is. You can use a mini food processor, large food processor or even a blender (this will be a slower process) instead of a coffee grinder. BTW, I use my coffee grinder for spices, nuts, seeds, and coconut all of the time. It has been more than worth it’s price and I’ve had it for at least 15 years. If you don’t have any of these appliances, you can chop finely by hand. The texture will be a little more coarse, but should be fine. Let me know if you have any more questions. If you need my text number, let me know on my Facebook page. Have a great day. -Kim

Guylian is best known for its chocolate sea shells; Cadbury for its Dairy Milk and Creme Egg. The Hershey Company, the largest chocolate manufacturer in North America, produces the Hershey Bar and Hershey's Kisses.[107] Mars Incorporated, a large privately owned U.S. corporation, produces Mars Bar, Milky Way, M&M's, Twix, and Snickers. Lindt is known for its truffle balls and gold foil-wrapped Easter bunnies.
Fruit is something that should be limited because of the high fructose content. It is natures candy. Yes, fruit has vitamins and healthy nutrients, but you will be getting far more nutrients from your increase veggie intake. Choose nutrient dense, low carb fruits such as berries. Fruit such as pineapple, mango, and especially dried fruits, should be avoided. Also, avoid ALL fruit juices. They have an incredibly high glycaemic index, which will make your insulin spike (and start storing fat again). “If you are overweight, fruit is not your friend”.
New processes that sped the production of chocolate emerged early in the Industrial Revolution. In 1815, Dutch chemist Coenraad van Houten introduced alkaline salts to chocolate, which reduced its bitterness.[18] A few years thereafter, in 1828, he created a press to remove about half the natural fat (cocoa butter or cacao butter) from chocolate liquor, which made chocolate both cheaper to produce and more consistent in quality. This innovation introduced the modern era of chocolate.[24]
I adjusted the servings to halve the recipe. Your ingredient calculator only adjusts the first amount. For example: 300 g/10.5 oz. Unsweetened chocolate. Metric will adjust, but not the imperial. Ingredient measurements switch places for almond flour and powdered erythritol, so it’s the imperial instead of metric measurements that will adjust. Luckily I noticed prior to purchasing or cooking. It looks really good! 

To be honest, I have not eaten every item in the box, and was hoping they would be so amazing that they would not have a chance to survive. Unfortunately, that just isn’t the case. First off, if you don't have diabetes, DON'T GET IT. It ruins EVERYTHING. Now, back to the stuff I can't eat. This "candy" is a wonderful idea for diabetic chocolates but for me, this particular item fell short. From what I've had so far, the Russell Stover sugar free is just a good, if not better. Our local grocery store has bulk sugar free chocolate which, to me, has a better, more realistic flavor. Don't get me wrong, I think the people at Diabeticfriendly provide a product that most diabetics would embrace with open arms. I'm just not one of them. The last candy I had from this box was a chocolate covered caramel. It was a real disappointment. The chocolate had a rather waxy taste and the caramel had a watered down flavor. I don't have any idea how you could possibly water down the taste of caramel but to me, it tasted that way to me.

Hi Cyn, The numbers are general guidelines but will vary depending on many factors, such as activity level, insulin resistance, weight and more. There is no single magic number, just conventional recommendations that are a good starting point. I will have a macro calculator coming soon that will help determine what is best for each person, but even then it’s an approximation. The only way to know for sure is to test. If keto is your goal, it’s usually best to start lower and then see if you can stay in ketosis when increasing.

When weight loss stalls something needs to change. Firstly it could be that you are near your goal weight and so you have found a natural balance, secondly other things might be creeping back in that you have forgotten to count (for example too many creamy coffees or an extra glass of wine). Take a look at how much you are eating for breakfast and dinner, are they too big and actually the same size as 3 meals just eaten in 2? Nuts, dairy and alcohol are generally the biggest culprits in stalling weight loss. Sometimes we just have to remind ourselves of the health benefits of LCHF rather than the weight loss. It will happen, albeit slower than we would wish. For me it is about no longer counting anything, no longer being on the sugar roller coaster, improved nutrition and no longer having any guilt surrounding every meal or snack. Good luck and be patient my friend 🙂
If you’re not a fan of dark chocolate or need a dairy free option this candy bar is made with coconut butter, you can tell by the lighter color than the chocolate bars at the top of the post. This recipe is exactly the one I used for making my No Bake Chocolate Coconut Butter Bunnies last year for Easter! Just melt and pour into candy bar molds. I honestly don’t think it has a coconut flavor because the chocolate flavor is more prominent, but you can be the judge as this takes literally less than 5 minutes to make and 30 minutes or so to harden.
Found these chocolate bars when they used to come thru Costco once a quarter. Wow they are good! I'm a milk chocolate fan, my hubby is a dark chocolate fan... they were cheaper there but worth it. With only 2 net carbs for the whole chocolate bar, it satisfies anyone who can't do the sugar. Many of the sugar free chocolate has a lower grade maltitol and it gives some unpleasant side effects if you eat too much, this candy does not. I went with the dark chocolate no flavor and it's $10 more (was for a bday so I went with the favorite), don't understand why that is...

Oh, Karen. I feel your pain! It hit me early at 40 (seven years ago). I had kept the weight off with low carb until I started the blog. Now I’m struggling. I’m around food all day and grazing all day – and let’s face it, not exercising like I should. This is a wonderful recipe. It freezes well if you opt to make the two smaller sizes. It is pretty heavy on calories and fat, and very filling so I have smaller pieces myself. It’s a crowd pleaser! Enjoy. -Kim

A low carb diet plan is a way of eating that is high in fat, moderate in protein and low in carbohydrates. There are different variations of low carb, and the keto diet is a special type of low carb with added characteristics. The number of carbohydrates will vary depending on your insulin tolerance and activity level, but on average, these are the common numbers of carbs:
Hi Katrin. Thanks for replying. Sweetness level I am not worried about. I was more concerned about structure; if the powdered sweetener added structure. Does it do anything to hold it together? I realize it’s bulk and sweetness, but I also wonder whether it does anything to keep it all together. If you know, let me know. Otherwise, I will experiment and let you know if it worked!

It will take a while to trust and adjust to your new appetite. I personally found when I was low fat and on Weight Watchers, I was ravenous all day long, so to be told eat what you like was difficult to understand. By eating more healthy fats especially, will keep you fuller for longer. And depending on how long you have been dieting for, and how insulin resistant you are, will depend on how long it takes for you to adjust appetite and weight. The odd person gains weight when they start because they don’t listen to their body. Remember to eat until 80% full (it takes a while for your stomach to register you have eaten your meal) and only eat when hungry. Don’t snack if you don’t have to. Are you really hungry or thirsty (similar feelings).
Welcome Denise and that is great news that you have discovered low carb to help with your T2 diabetes. Read this post which may really explain how diabetics especially can be helped by lowering their carbs, how it may lower your insulin resistance and improve your control. Where you set your carb limits will depend on how high your current carb intake is and current medication. You may need to be seen by a diabetes educator, dietician or health professional as your need for medication may need to be reduced in conjunction with lowering your carbs. Ensure they are low carb friendly practitioners.
Different manufacturers develop their own "signature" blends based on the above formulas, but varying proportions of the different constituents are used. The finest, plain dark chocolate couvertures contain at least 70% cocoa (both solids and butter), whereas milk chocolate usually contains up to 50%. High-quality white chocolate couvertures contain only about 35% cocoa butter.

The new research is unlikely to end the decades-long debate over the best diet for weight loss. But it provides strong new evidence that all calories are not metabolically alike to the body. And it suggests that the popular advice on weight loss promoted by health authorities — count calories, reduce portion sizes and lower your fat intake — might be outdated.


Many people starting out go by the rule of 5g carbs per 100g. I totally empathise with you about fearing the fat. I slowly reduced my carb and slowly increased my healthy fats until I got to a comfortable level (which may be different for everyone). Don’t overdo the fat, we want to be using our bodies fat stores, but we do need to eat enough to keep us full and keep the carbs away. So eat healthy fat until full, eat meals until no longer hungry, and remove processed food from your diet and you almost become low carb by default.

Low-carbohydrate diet advocates including Gary Taubes and David Ludwig have proposed a "carbohydrate-insulin hypothesis" in which carbohydrate is said to be uniquely fattening because it raises insulin levels and so causes fat to accumulate unduly.[28][8] The hypothesis appears to run counter to known human biology whereby there is no good evidence of any such association between the actions of insulin and fat accumulation and obesity.[6] The hypothesis predicted that low-carbohydrate dieting would offer a "metabolic advantage" of increased energy expenditure equivalent to 400-600 kcal/day, in accord with the promise of the Atkin's diet: a "high calorie way to stay thin forever".[8]
I’ve seen young body-builder types with grocery trolleys full of eggs, cans of tuna, lean beef and especially skinless/boneless chicken breasts – so I adopted that habit about 5 months ago. 2 or 3 eggs for breakfast, sometimes with cheese or bacon, a can of tuna with carb-free herbs for lunch, and then a steak or big chicken breast or even some meat-only hot dogs for dinner. I don’t purposely eat more fat than necessary, mostly because the calories are not needed. I have not been hungry AT ALL, even when sitting down to eat. No temptation to “cheat”, either. Result? I am approaching 100 pounds lost (not proud of being THAT fat, believe me) , blood pressure dropped from 170/100 to 122/80, acid reflux totally gone, any joint pain banished, and a closet full of clothes I can wear once again.

This innovation introduced the modern era of chocolate.[24]

Jamie is right on this, 1 cup of cocoa butter converts to 218 grams. Adding a whole cup of cocoa powder to just 100 grams of cocoa butter would indeed be overwhelming. I recommend that nobody follow the recipe unless they make sure they measure the cup of cocoa butter AFTER it is melted or use a scale to weigh it to 218 grams, thus avoiding this major error in your conversion rate on the cocoa butter.
The penultimate process is called conching. A conche is a container filled with metal beads, which act as grinders. The refined and blended chocolate mass is kept in a liquid state by frictional heat. Chocolate prior to conching has an uneven and gritty texture. The conching process produces cocoa and sugar particles smaller than the tongue can detect, hence the smooth feel in the mouth. The length of the conching process determines the final smoothness and quality of the chocolate. High-quality chocolate is conched for about 72 hours, and lesser grades about four to six hours. After the process is complete, the chocolate mass is stored in tanks heated to about 45 to 50 °C (113 to 122 °F) until final processing.[62]

Christy, I love this dessert and am so happy you liked it, too. I have found that the xanthan gum stabilizes the whipped cream enough to be good for about 5 days. It does make it stiff and it’s a little tricky smoothing it over the pudding layer. I just go slowly and gently. Just so you know, my recipe card has a recipe scale function. Hover over the serving size and slide it to how many servings you would like to make. It is very handy. Thanks so much for taking the time to comment and let me know how much you liked the recipe. -Kim
Dark chocolate is produced by adding fat and sugar to the cacao mixture. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration calls this "sweet chocolate", and requires a 15% concentration of chocolate liquor. European rules specify a minimum of 35% cocoa solids.[34] A higher amount of cocoa solids indicates more bitterness. Semisweet chocolate is a dark chocolate with a low sugar content. Bittersweet chocolate is chocolate liquor to which some sugar (typically a third), more cocoa butter and vanilla are added.[citation needed] It has less sugar and more liquor than semisweet chocolate, but the two are interchangeable in baking. It is also known to last for two years if stored properly. As of 2017, there is no high-quality evidence that dark chocolate affects blood pressure significantly or provides other health benefits.[36]
Representing only 5% of all cocoa beans grown as of 2008,[49] criollo is the rarest and most expensive cocoa on the market, and is native to Central America, the Caribbean islands and the northern tier of South American states.[50] The genetic purity of cocoas sold today as criollo is disputed, as most populations have been exposed to the genetic influence of other varieties.
Another mineral you may want to supplement is potassium. While there is no concrete evidence that a dramatic potassium loss occurs on a low-carb regimen, Sondike says to ensure against problems he recommends patients use Morton's Light Salt -- a potassium chloride product that he says can add back any of this important mineral that's lost. Eating a few almonds is also a good way to supplement this mineral without adding carbs to your diet.
Any suggestions for butterscotch pudding to make this with? We always made a half chocolate (on one side not mixed) and half butterscotch which was personal favorites with this combo. No idea where to begin making butterscotch pudding. Will have to research I suppose. BTW we call this Maxine for some reason through our families recipe of this. But I totally get better than sex too. It’s so yummy.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommend that adults do moderate exercise for 150 minutes a week for a minimum 10 minutes at a time for moderate health benefits. For optimal health benefits, the CDC recommend 300 minutes of exercise. The CDC also suggest that people lift weights or do other strength training exercises to improve overall health.
Hi Lisa, I think you might end up with chocolate syrup if you use honey for the sweetener. You may want to look into granulated honey, which might produce a coarse or grittier texture to the chocolate, but you may still have a chance of getting the chocolate to solidify. If you need any help, please feel free to email me (acleanbake@gmail.com). And welcome to the site! I’m so glad you found me 🙂
Asher’s uses locally sourced potato chips, which get taken and turned into a delicious chocolate covered treat. Potato chips get drenched in our smooth and creamy chocolate to introduce you to one of our newer products, Chocolate Covered Potato Chips. These chocolate covered delights come in either milk or dark chocolate and are able to be bought in both small and large servings.
Hi Stacey, I can’t give medical advice and definitely recommend following your doctor’s recommendations. You can ask him/her if low carb would be better suited for you. Also, you may want to double check with him/her if the kidney concern was related to high protein, because that is a common misconception about keto – it is not a high protein diet/lifestyle.
Did you taste the mixture before you let it harden in the mold? If it was bitter to you before letting it harden, you needed more sweetener. For some getting used to stevia is a big transition. I use the vanilla liquid stevia by the brand Sweetleaf. I have tried Trader Joe’s vanilla stevia but I didn’t like it as much as Sweetleaf. Also different brands of liquid stevia are made differently and the way they are processed to form the liquid will produce different levels of sweetness. NuNaturals vanilla stevia is much sweeter than Sweetleaf. Don’t dump out your bottle but try other recipes with it and hopefully you can use it up and not feel you wasted your money on it. I’m sorry you didn’t like the recipe.
I know you posted a few months ago, but I thought I would reply just incase its still relevant. After having a daughter who LOVES veges, I then had my son who at a year old suddenly refused veges. It was getting so bad he would make himself throw it up if we forced him. But we kept on going trying everything we could while getting extremely frustrated (While also being told by everyone he was too small and sickly (Which he always was but got worse when he stopped eating the veges)

Hi Maya. I LOVE your site!! Interesting, informative with fab recipes and ideas. Hubby and I have just started eating low carb and I have to say, we are not finding it too difficult and I already feel sooo much better!! I find the hardest part is choosing low carb veg, I feel as if we are not eating enough. Any suggestions on how to get more veggies into our diet?
It has been repeatedly found that in the long-term, all diets with the same calorific value perform the same for weight loss, except for the one differentiating factor of how well people can faithfully follow the dietary programme.[27] A study comparing groups taking low-fat, low-carbohydrate and Mediterranean diets found at six months the low-carbohydrate diet still had most people adhering to it, but thereafter the situation reversed: at two years the low-carbohydrate group had the highest incidence of lapses and dropouts.[27] This may be due to the comparatively limited food choice of low-carbohydrate diets.[27]
I would agree with many, but not all of your points. “Fat and carbs don’t make us fat. It’s only processed fat (vegetable oil) and processed carbs (white flour and added sugar) in processed foods (foods with more than one ingredient) that inherently lead to overeating and weight gain.” I have also said this throughout my website and one of the biggest myths I try to bust is that we are not NO carb we are LOW carb. By removing processed food from our daily diet, we almost become low carb by default. Nutrient dense, low-carb whole foods are encouraged but not to be overdone. Lower carb diets reduce insulin resistance and inflammation. Lower carb diets, with healthy fats, gives a better blood lipid profile and lower TG which is the best predictor of heart health. There are so many benefits from eating nutrient dense lower carb whole foods.
I just made this over the past 2 days, and I’m curious if the pudding will stiffen up again after being mixed with the almond milk? It had such a great pudding consistency and then when I added the almond milk it became very runny, so then it was difficult to put the whipped cream layer on top. All of the layers have been super delicious! I hope that the crust will still be good even though I didn’t bake it. I wasn’t thinking and wish I had. Thanks so much!

You mentioned ketone strips. If they are the urine strips they are useful to see if you are in ketosis, fat burning mode, but be aware they are not completely accurate but are a good guide to how you are doing. The blood strips are way too expensive but more accurate. I have a blood glucose monitor and went through a phase of testing to see how I react to dairy, protein, cream, coffee etc. I rarely do it now as I want this way of eating to be as simple as possible, but again, a useful tool starting out. 

Research into the effectiveness of low-carbohydrate, high fat (LCHF) diets for preventing weight gain and diabetes has produced conflicting results, with some suggestion that diet suitability is not generalizable, but specific to individuals.[11] Overall, for prevention, there is no good evidence that LCHF diets offer a superior diet choice to a more conventional healthy diet, as recommended by many health authorities, in which carbohydrate typically accounts for more than 40% of calories consumed.[11]
Chocolate is generally stored away from other foods, as it can absorb different aromas. Ideally, chocolates are packed or wrapped, and placed in proper storage with the correct humidity and temperature. Additionally, chocolate is frequently stored in a dark place or protected from light by wrapping paper. The glossy shine, snap, aroma, texture, and taste of the chocolate can show the quality and if it was stored well.[75] 

The treat that now lies quietly in its wrapper carries a story of exotic places, long journeys and small families that raise delicate tropical fruit trees. As you peel back the wrapper, you’re uncovering the cacao tree’s seed—and joining people the world over who have turned to this mysterious food for ritual, medicine and sheer pleasure for the past 4,000 years. 

Roughly two-thirds of the entire world's cocoa is produced in West Africa, with 43% sourced from Côte d'Ivoire,[38] where, as of 2007, child labor is a common practice to obtain the product.[39][40] According to the World Cocoa Foundation, in 2007 some 50 million people around the world depended on cocoa as a source of livelihood.[41] As of 2007 in the UK, most chocolatiers purchase their chocolate from them, to melt, mold and package to their own design.[42] According to the WCF's 2012 report, the Ivory Coast is the largest producer of cocoa in the world.[43] The two main jobs associated with creating chocolate candy are chocolate makers and chocolatiers. Chocolate makers use harvested cacao beans and other ingredients to produce couverture chocolate (covering). Chocolatiers use the finished couverture to make chocolate candies (bars, truffles, etc.).[44]
Super low carb or Carb free are the only diet that worked me and it was HARD…I became a raging beast during the 1st 2 weeks. But for 3 months straight, I lost about 30lbs. Unfortunately my weight all came back and then some when I started going back to school and eating carbs again due to stress and lack of prepping ahead of time. Now I definitely want to go back and stay low carb as much as possible. Reading this is helping to motivate me 🙂 thank you.

Chocolate is a usually sweet, brown food preparation of roasted and ground cacao seeds. It is made in the form of a liquid, paste, or in a block, or used as a flavoring ingredient in other foods. The earliest evidence of use traces to the Olmecs (Mexico), with evidence of chocolate beverages dating to 1900 BC.[1][2] The majority of Mesoamerican people made chocolate beverages, including the Maya and Aztecs.[3] Indeed, the word "chocolate" is derived from the Classical Nahuatl word chocolātl.[4]
Make sure you're heating your cocoa butter slowly, microwaving in short increments and stirring in between, the cooling slowly as well. So let it come to room temp to solidify, then store in the fridge, rather then sticking the warm chocolate in the fridge or freezer to chill more quickly. This helps to prevent bloom, that dusty white layer than can develop on the outside of chocolate after condensation forms.
Thank you for such a nice comment, Eric, and I am so glad you were able to have something to remind you of home while you are currently in Japan. You are right, it is the ultimate fat bomb and we often cut it into even smaller pieces. Thank you for telling me about the lemon juice in the cream cheese layer, I will have to try it. Have a wonderful week and enjoy Japan. -Kim
When Zin, former girlfriend of a Thai mob boss, falls for Masashi, a Japanese gangster in Thailand, the boss banishes them: Masashi to Japan, and Zin, with her small daughter Zen, to live next to a martial arts school. Zen is autistic, with uncanny swift reflexes. She watches the students next door and Muay Thai movies, absorbing every technique. She's now a teen, and her mother needs chemotherapy. Zin has taken in a chubby kid, Moom, who watches over Zen. Moom finds a ledger listing business men who owe Zin money; he goes to them one at a time to collect in order to pay for Zin's treatment. Zen, with her martial skills, becomes his enforcer. A showdown with the boss is inevitable. Written by
It will take a while to trust and adjust to your new appetite. I personally found when I was low fat and on Weight Watchers, I was ravenous all day long, so to be told eat what you like was difficult to understand. By eating more healthy fats especially, will keep you fuller for longer. And depending on how long you have been dieting for, and how insulin resistant you are, will depend on how long it takes for you to adjust appetite and weight. The odd person gains weight when they start because they don’t listen to their body.

Some of the concerns are around micronutrients — supplementation of electrolytes, vitamins, and fiber is often required on low-carb diets, Zeratsky says. And sometimes, these diets can actually lower the blood sugar of a person with diabetes to the point where it’s too low, which is also dangerous. (Low-carb diets are not recommended for those people with type 1 diabetes or anyone on insulin due to that risk, experts note.)
The composition of a person’s diet had a major impact on his or her metabolism in this study. The people on the low-carb plan burned off about 250 calories a day more than those on the high-carb diet, Ludwig said. In the low-carb group, those with the highest insulin secretion at the start of the study had even more dramatic results, burning up to 478 calories more per day than the high-carb dieters.
I too found this recipe to be very, very bitter. In fact, I had to spit it out. I am use to the taste and baking with stevia. I used KAL brand pure stevia and Sweet Leaf liquid stevia. I wonder if the 1 1/2 Tablespoons is just too much. I felt as thought my Dagoba chocolate was wasted. Wanting to save the product, I reheated it, added homemade sweetened condensed coconut milk and homemade coconut milk caramel sauce and some yacon syurp. I then added some roasted salted cashews. I put it on a cookie sheet, spread it out, sprinkled on some Enjoy Life mini chips and put it in the refrigerator. Two hours later I took a taste and found it to be much less bitter and something I will be able to eat. I will probably try your recipe again using only the brand products you used, but with the cost of them, I will use much less powdered stevia. Thanks for all you do to provide sugar free recipes to all of us.
In 1964, Roald Dahl published a children's novel titled Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. The novel centers on a poor boy named Charlie Bucket who takes a tour through the greatest chocolate factory in the world, owned by Willy Wonka. Two film adaptations of the novel were produced. The first was Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, a 1971 film which later became a cult classic, and spawned the real world Willy Wonka Candy Company, which produces chocolate products to this day. Thirty-four years later, a second film adaptation was produced, titled Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. The 2005 film was very well received by critics[124] and was one of the highest-grossing films that year, earning over US$470,000,000 worldwide.[125] Charlie and the Chocolate Factory was also recognized at the 78th Academy Awards, where it was nominated for Best Costume Design for Gabriella Pesucci.[126]
