Heavenly Low-FODMAP Chocolate Pudding/ Pots-de-Crème; Gluten-free, Vegan

Printer Friendly Version

This low-FODMAP chocolate pudding recipe is the rich, creamy low-FODMAP chocolate decadence you have been craving.   This recipe reminds me of a French pot-de-creme due to its extra thick consistency.  However, since it is not a traditional custard (no eggs) it really is more appropriate to call it low-FODMAP chocolate pudding.

Top it with low-FODMAP coconut whipped cream, fresh low-FODMAP berries (like blueberries, strawberries or raspberries), or toasted low-FODMAP nuts (like peanuts, hazelnuts, pecans or walnuts). This low-FODMAP chocolate pudding is vegan and gluten-free, and absolutely to die for!
