No time? No problem!
Whoever is about to pop up at your apartment while you’ve got nothing to put on the table and no time on your hands, is to be a happy camper if you make them this dessert. The guests can be vegan, keto, lactose-intolerant, picky, or just ordinary guys who struggle to understand your weird way of eating … But, they must love chocolate. If they don’t, more chocolate pudding for you!
I know what it is like to be too busy for anything. At the same time, I am that kind of a person who doesn’t like to have their guests sitting at an empty table. I like to serve them with something nice even if they end up not wanting to try anything. More for me in this case. After all, I rarely say no to my homemade keto-friendly desserts. 😉
I made this one up when someone was just about to celebrate their birthday, and I got invited on short notice during hectic days. So I made these and brought them to the party with me in a cooler bag. Didn’t have much time to take photos, though; hence the slightly impaired quality.
Chocolate and orange: Happily ever after
The pudding is made of ingredients I practically keep at home at all times: coconut milk, powdered agar agar, high-quality dark chocolate, orange oil (because I buy a lot when I see it and use a little every now and then), almonds, and sugar-free orange marmalade (same story as with the oil, and the one I buy is very low-carb).
If you happen to have no orange oil, zest, or marmalade, I highly recommend you get some for desserts like this one. Orange goes so, so well with chocolate! This pudding, enhanced with orange flavor and served in nice little finger-food plastic serving cups, ends up looking like something a fancy catering company has brought in. Very high-end, but no big deal behind. Try it out yourself!
