Traditionally, pudding requires a high-carb thickener to create the thick and creamy texture that we love.

By using heavy cream we’ve eliminated the need for those thickeners. We rely on the natural thickening ability of egg yolks and gentle heat to make this low-carb pudding recipe.

How To Make Keto Vanilla Pudding

  1. Place the heavy cream into a saucepan over low heat.
  2. Split the vanilla bean and scrape out the seeds, add the bean and seeds to the cream and allow to infuse for 5 minutes.
  3. Turn off the heat and set aside to cool.
  4. In a mixing bowl, add the egg yolk and erythritol and whisk until the mixture is pale.
  5. Check the temperature of the cream, if the cream is cool enough for you to put your finger in it then it is ready to use. If not allow to sit for a little longer to cool.
  6. Pour ¼ of the cream mixture into the egg yolk and whisk to combine, add another ¼ of the cream, and finally all of the cream. This method is called tempering and allows the eggs to slowly warm up without cooking.
  7. Pour the eggs and cream back into the saucepan and back over low heat.
  8. Using a silicone spatula continually stir the mixture until it begins to thicken. The mixture is thick enough when it coats the spatula without dripping off.
  9. Pour the pudding, through a strainer, into a clean mixing bowl and continue to stir as it cools for 5 minutes. To cool quicker, place the bowl of pudding into a larger bowl filled with ice cubes.
  10. Place a sheet of cling film over the pudding and press it onto the surface to prevent a skin from forming.
  11. Place the pudding in the fridge for 1-2 hours to cool completely before enjoying.

  1. Hi!
    How long are you supposed to stir while on low heat to get it to thickness?
    I’ve been stirring for over 7 min and it feels like nothing is happening

  2. Thank you! This is my second time on keto and this is the first keto dessert that actually satiated my sweet tooth, texture and taste were great! I don’t care for xylitol so I used combination of monk fruit and stevia. Going to make a double batch next time.

    Super easy (I use vanilla extract) and always double the recipe because my children love it too!

    Thanks
