Chocolate Pudding and Pie Filling

Once again I need to make it clear that chocolate is not allowed on the SCD or a Paleo diet. But.....I need it. You know, like the moon needs the sun, I need chocolate. So here is my adapted version of pudding and pie filling. The original recipe came from M.A.G. blog, I love this blog and am always amazed at the thought provoking posts. Erin is who I want to be when I grow up!

Chocolate Pudding and Pie Filling

2 T. arrowroot starch
1/4 c. raw cacao powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/3 - 1/2 c. honey
1 1/2 c. coconut milk
1/2 c. water
1 tsp. vanilla

Combine the starch, salt and cacao powder in a heavy saucepan. Add the honey, and coconut milk and water, whisk until combined. Place the pan over medium heat and cook until bubbly, whisking constantly. Remove from heat and add vanilla. Let cool 10 minutes then place in cups, bowls, or a cooked pie crust. Makes 1- 8 inch pie or 6 custard cups. Top with SCD Whipped Cream.


  1. It's 80/20 right? 20% chocolate sounds about right to me.

  2. OMG. Chocolate pudding?! I'm going to have to try this some day. I can imagine it's delicious.

  3. Wonder if this would work for vanilla pudding in some form.

  4. Here is another post from Erin for vanilla pudding, I haven't tried it but everything of hers is fabulous!
