Since moving to more of a ketovore/carnivore way of eating I love being able to easily add protein in without adding carbs. Protein and animal fat are the backbone of the proper human diet. I wanted a satiating dessert that was packed full of protein! While watching one of Dr. Berry’s lives he mentioned pudding made from hardboiled eggs! I promise you I gagged a little at the thought and yet was intrigued enough to google it. I came across one from Two Krazy Ketos, which if you haven’t checked out their website be sure to do so, one from Maria Emmerich, and a couple more. Not finding one that was exactly to my liking I decided to piggyback off them all and make my own version. One called for coconut milk, but one of my kids does not care for coconut so that was out. Another called for fancy protein powders and I just wanted simple, so that one was out. Plus the thought of hardboiling and peeling all those eggs seemed daunting! I decided to give soft scrambled eggs a try and made half a batch just to test. I couldn’t believe I wasn’t eating a rich, sugar filled, delectable pudding! I made another half batch and my family gobbled it up!
That is all well and good because we eat healthy anyway, the true test was going to be trying it out on picky children. You know, the ones that can smell healthy and run the other way! In Novemeber of last year I got my chance to test it out on a picky child. Our cousins were out visiting and their youngest daughter is very picky and would eat chicken nuggets every meal if you let her. I had her dad try the pudding and he liked it, but said, “she won’t eat it because she would taste the healthy.” Me being me called her to the kitchen and asked her to taste a little of “Auntie Shari’s special pudding”. She did so and loved it. She promised she would eat a whole bowl if I made more and so I did and she kept to her word. Now whenever she is around she always asks for my pudding. Her big sister also loves the pudding.
Next test came with my little neice who basically doesn’t eat anything unless it is full of carbohydrates! While over visiting I busted out the pudding for my sister-in-law to try and then gave my neice some. She loved it.
The best thing about making things from scratch is if you have someone who is picky or prefers things really sweet you can adjust the sweetness to taste and then slowly reduce the sweetner as the taste buds are retrained.
Now onto the recipe!
- 1 Blender
- 10 eggs lightly scrambled(do not let them get dry)
- 7oz Maccadamia nut milk*
- 7oz Heavy Whipping cream*
- 1/2 cup Allulose or sweetener of choice
- 1/4 cocoa powder
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/8tsp salt~ I prefer Redmond’s salt
Scramble eggs over low/med heat until just done. You want them not dry but not slimy.
Add eggs and all other ingredients to blender. Blend on medium to high until all the eggs are blended up and there are no chunks. Pour into a dish and chill until cold and fully set. That’s it, super easy and takes no more than 10 minutes from cracking the eggs to sticking in the fridge!
Can even be enjoyed with homemade whipped cream! See how to make your own right here Whip it Good!
Here is miss picky’s approval!
*The milk can be of your choice, you just want 14oz of it. If you like coconut use a can of full fat coconut milk. If you tolerate almond milk you can use that as well. Some folks do not tolerate almond milk or almonds due to oxylates. You can use all heavy whipping cream as well. I just find this blend works really well.
