Chocolate Pudding

I don't know who to thank for this idea. Saved this recipe ages ago and just made it to cure a major chocolate craving.

recipe as posted:

Cocoa Pudding - All Phases

You must have a food processor or a very good blender for this.

1 large (24oz)container 2% cottage cheese (no light n'lively or fat-free please, yuck!)
2 Tblsp cocoa powder
capful of vanilla
4 packets splenda (you might like more, I don't like it real sweet)

Dump all this into the food processor with the chopping blade not the mixing blade! Blend until all the cottage cheese lumps are gone. It will be thick and very creamy and yummy. You can't get it creamy without the food processor.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I made it this way...it was quick and VERY good.

1/2 Cup 2% Cottage Cheese
Approx. 1 Tbl Cocoa Powder
Sweetner to taste - I used 1 packet Splenda & a dash of Stevia
Few drops of Vanilla Extract
1/2 & 1/2 - Used to thin to a good consistancy


I put everything in a 2 cup measuring cup and used my stick blender.

If I can find no salt added cottage cheese, I plan on making it with that.

Also...sure it would be great with berries, less the cocoa powder.

I love this idea, but i can't have dairy so I made a non-dairy version of this delicious chocolate pudding:

Cocoa Almond Pudding
This makes a delicious pie filling for pie crust in the raw, or layered with fruit for fruit parfait, or served frozen as almond sorbet.

1.5 cup coconut milk
2-3 TB Almond butter
10-12 large dates, pits removed and chopped
2 TB un-roasted, un-sweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Pinch sea salt
8-10 drops vanilla crème liquid stevia

Blend all ingredients in a food processor until creamy. Adjust sweetness to taste.

Oh boy. Have you checked out the carb count on your recipe? You do know our focus here is on Low Carb? There's a lot of sugars and starches in that recipe even without the sucrose.

(we've pretty much sussed out Stevia already, many of us for many years, but other carbs than sugar carbs are way important here at lowcarbfriends.com).

My thoughts exactly, I was really surprised at the recipe posted. I saw oats and quit reading, lol!

Back to the original recipe here about the chocolate pudding. This is similar to the recipe found with the South Beach diet only they use ricotta cheese. I am going to try it with cottage cheese though because it is quite a bit cheaper than ricotta in my parts. Thanks for sharing this great looking recipe

I was thinking the same thing...using ricotta. Even though it is more expensive it has a naturally sweeter taste and smoother texture than cottage cheese. I think the ricotta would be much better.

I actually do something like this with Silken Tofu. It gets WAY creamy in the food processor, and is just yummers (and I don't even like tofu). Great version for the dairy intolerant.
