Every now and then I get a challenge tossed at me
.
My friend wants to be able to offer her husband some tasty, sugar-free options to replace his current treats
.
He loves to snack on anything chocolate so that’s where I started, and we all know that sugar-free is no problem for me
.
Except – she has a severe nut and coconut allergy, so 99% of the low carb and keto treats that I would usually recommend are out
.
And she’s a busy working mum, so nothing time-consuming and complicated 
.
I’ve got your back, girl. This pudding is a sure-fire winner
.
It’s rich and chocolatey and can be adapted to so many flavour combinations that he’ll never get sick of it – this one has sugar free choc-mint chocolate on top and a drop of spearmint flavour mixed in
.
You can use whichever sweetener you prefer, I used golden erythritol blend because I love the flavour but you could use stevia, sugar-free maple syrup, monkfruit, whatever you have on hand or prefer
.
Mocha? Replace some or all of the milk with espresso
.
Jaffa? Add some orange oil or zest
.
Vegan? Swap the dairy for coconut milk and yoghurt
.
The options are endless
.
Best of all, it takes five minutes to throw together and you have days worth of healthy treats ready to grab and go
.
