Looking for a low-sugar chocolate dessert? Look no further, I got ya covered 😉
These delicious parfaits are made with grass-fed (unflavoured) beef gelatin. Gelatin has so many awesome benefits, it gives you amazing skin, hair, and nails, great for your joints, helps tightens skin and prevent wrinkles. The quality of your gelatin is key, I used Great Lakes but Vital Proteins is also awesome.
These parfaits are also full of healthy fats, and low in sugar and carbs. Yup. You get all that just from eating dessert!
So what are you waiting for…
- 1 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 2 Tbsp grass-fed beef gelatin (unflavoured)
- 2 Tbsp cocoa powder
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 20 drops liquid stevia or 2 Tbsp sweetener of choice
- Pinch of salt
- 1 cup coconut cream*
- 10 drops liquid stevia or 1 Tbsp sweetener of choice
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- *To make coconut cream simply place a can of full-fat coconut milk in the fridge overnight. The stuff that hardens on top is coconut cream.
- 1/2 oz dark chocolate (optional)
- To make the pudding layer, combine 1/2 cup cold almond milk with gelatin in a small bowl. Stir well and set aside to thicken.
- Meanwhile, heat 1 cup of almond milk in a small sauce pan over med-low heat. Be careful not to scorch it! Stir in cocoa powder, vanilla, stevia and salt. Heat until bubbles form but do not boil. Stir in gelatin mixture, it should have thickened by now.
- Whisk over low heat until gelatin is dissolved.
- Pour half of the mixture into four small mason jars or dessert bowls. Place in fridge along with remaining pudding to thicken.
- For the coconut whipped cream, combine all the ingredients into a bowl. Beat on high with a hand mixer for about 3 minutes until peaks have formed.
- Remove mason jars from fridge. Add half of the mixture on top of the pudding. Top with remaining pudding, then top with remaining whipped cream. Sprinkle with shaved or chopped dark chocolate.
- These can be made a day before and refrigerated.
