  • 2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup keto sweetener (1/4-1/2 cup taste for desired sweeteness)
  • 2 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon gelatin


  • Bloom gelatin by mixing 1/4 cup of heavy cream with 1/2 teaspoon of gelatin powder. Set aside. This is a 1/4 cup out of the 2 cups not extra. Meaning you will start the next step with the remaining 1 3/4 cup heavy cream.
  • In a pot on medium low heat add heavy cream. Then add in sweetener, vanilla flavoring. Mix until smooth and combined. This will happen with the heat rising.
  • Allow mix to get hot. It should steam but don't let it boil. If you see bubbles rising turn the heat off.
  • Once mix is steaming add in bloomed gelatin. Continue stirring and allow to fully melt. Gelatin needs to fully dissolve. If not you'll get lumps.
  • Pour into a bowl after mix is smooth again. If worried about lumps pour it through a strainer. To avoid the skin on the pudding over plastic wrap and make sure to have the plastic touching the top of the pudding. This is what prevents the skin from forming.
  • Refridgerate for an hour or 2 so gelatin can set. Remove the plastic and give it a good stir. Serve. I was able to fill 6 3.5oz of the jars.


Helpful Recipe Tips

  • Avoid overheating, do not let this recipe boil. A slight simmer is ok if it gets too hot just drop the heat and it’ll be fine. Yet, with heavy cream and chocolate overheating will cause curdling and separation.
  • Why not use xanthan gum, I personally don’t like the texture that comes with it. You are welcome to give it a try if you just don’t want to use gelatin. Start off with 1/4 teaspoon. You can also use chia seeds to thicken using this recipe here.
  • Granulated or powdered sweetener, I have seen some bloggers swear by one or the other but in a recipe such as this one the sweetener is melting anyway so it doesn’t matter.
  • Serve with cookies, I love the Highkey Snacks vanilla wafer cookies with this recipe. They add a crunchy texture and inviting wafer flavor in each bite.
