What Kind of Chocolate Can Be Used for This Keto Avocado Chocolate Pudding?
For this dessert we used unsweetened cocoa powder. While most chocolate flavored desserts are not considered keto because they are loaded with sugar, this one is different. This is due to the fact that we used unsweetened cocoa powder. Believe it or not, cocoa powder is a fantastic keto ingredient that allows us to enjoy the chocolate flavor we love.
Can You Use Milk for this Keto Avocado Chocolate Pudding?
We used Almond milk in this recipe, but you can choose to use another kind of nut milk like coconut or cashew. Most nut milks contain 1 gram or less of carbohydrates per cup, making them great for those on the Keto diet. Remember though, that it is important to read the nutrition label and purchase the unsweetened varieties of nut milks.
Is the Sweetener in this Keto Avocado Chocolate Pudding Keto Friendly?
Granulated swerve sweetener can be consumed on the Keto diet. This is because it is technically considered a sugar alcohol that your body doesn’t absorb. This is because Swerve sweetener is comprised of Erythritol. It has no calories and is about 70 to 80 percent as sweet as natural sugar. It does not raise blood sugar, so it is considered to have no impact on your daily carb allowance while on keto.
Are Avocados Keto Friendly?
Avocados are loved by many. In fact, they are technically classified as fruit. This leaves many people wondering if they are truly suitable for the keto diet.
The truth is avocados are actually a keto superstar. They are packed with healthy vitamins, fiber, minerals and monounsaturated fats and believe it or not, they are super low in carbohydrates. An entire avocado only has 2 net grams of carbohydrates, making it a delicious, healthy keto approved superstar.
