Superfood Chocolate Pudding Cups

Superfood Chocolate Pudding Cups

One of the biggest complaints I hear from people transitioning to a Real Food Lifestyle is needing kid friendly snacks. I’ve come up with an amazing Superfood Chocolate Pudding Cups you can make ahead for quick snacks to pack in lunches and for on-the-go! (not just great for kids, great for adult lunches too!)

Each of these pudding cups you make for your family is packed with Superfoods too! Each 1/2 cup serving has 1/2 Tablespoon of Gelatin (click HERE to learn why Gelatin is a superfood) and 1 Tablespoon of Raw Cacao (click HERE to learn why Raw Cacao is a superfood) More importantly than what’s in these pudding cups, is what is NOT in them. Those cheap, pre made pudding cups at the grocery store are dangerous and unhealthy

1/4 Pint (canning) jars make the perfect single serving size (1/2 cup) of pudding (click HERE to buy) and you can use the 2 part canning lids that come with them or I prefer plastic lids (click HERE to buy)

I’ve written this recipe to make 5 – 1/2 cup servings, perfect to make on the weekend and have one per school/work day for the upcoming week!

  1. This sounds SO delicious and so good for you, too. Adding it to my “Health Desserts” page on Pinterest to make SOON.

    Thanks for sharing! :)

    Just made this. Thanks for the recipe. I have so many dietary restrictions that “fun” foods are limited. This was very good indeed. A little grainy but I think that would be handled by sifting the cocoa flour first and putting in the gelatin last. Still very delicious, though!

    hi there,
    great recipe but you seem to have a typo in the description- 3T of gelatin divided by 5 serves means a little over 1/2T per serve. which about right for a kid. cheers, r

  4. This sounds great! I am going to try it. Thank you for this easy to print format :).

  5. April says:

    This looks great. I read your link about cacao. Does the cacao have caffeine in it? Also how high do you heat the mixture? Thanks.

    • Hayley says:

      There is a small amount of caffeine in raw cacao. And as I said in the recipe just heat over low, just enough to melt everything together!

  6. These sound great! I was looking for a nice treat for the kids’ school lunches! :)

    I just made this, one version with coconut milk and one with heavy cream– then we poured them into gluten free crusts to make pudding pies. They were delicious– BUT very gelatin like vs. pudding like. In the future, I think I will decrease the amount of gelatin so that it has more of a pudding/creamy texture vs the firm (jello jiggler) texture it came up with.

  8. Hayley, your recipe sounds yummy! I will share it on my page this week! I adore anything with chocolate.

  9. Marie says:

    These have 14 grams of sugar per serving, about the same as ice cream. How does it count as a healthy snack?

    • Hayley Ryczek says:

      Marie – this is Packed with Nutrient Dense HEALTHY foods, it’s a silly question to ask. Commercially produced ice cream is loaded with dangerous processed foods, chemicals, preservatives and sugar/unhealthy sweeteners. I would be glad to provide you with a 1:1 comparison if you will share your favorite brand of ice cream.

    Definitely going on my list of things to make at nap time… so I don’t have to share. ;) Thanks for the recipe!
