Now you can make vanilla pudding just like grandma’s, except better! No cornstarch, no gelatin, or xanthan gum needed to whip up this easy and creamy keto goodness.

I believe every household needs a good vanilla pudding recipe. It’s just one of those stable desserts that we associate with our childhood, family nights, and comfort. I know I do!

Unfortunately, traditional vanilla pudding is made with sugar and cornstarch. But don’t you worry. We can easily make super healthy, keto pudding right in our own little adobes. All you need is egg yolks, heavy cream, erythritol, and vanilla extract.

So go ahead, follow my tips, and whip up a dessert that the whole family can enjoy!

Cooking. Pudding is made by slowly heating up the custard. Otherwise, we will end up with bits of scrambled egg in our pudding. So, don’t rush it. First, we will only bring some heavy cream and erythritol to a simmer over medium-low heat. We will then add out our heavy cream-yolk mixture, and while constantly whisking, bring the whole custard mixture to a low rolling boil. No problem!

Chilling. After cooking our custard, the mixture will look like a vanilla sauce, not pudding. So our next step is to chill the custard, so that it can set and turn into a creamy pudding. Pour the custard into 4 small serving dishes and chill in the fridge for about 2 hours or overnight. (You can also chill it in one large dish, but that may increase the chilling time a bit.)The more time you give it to chill, the thicker your pudding will be!

Serving. As a German, my favorite way to serve vanilla pudding is with German fruit pudding. The combination of vanilla and berry is simply to die for! Other serving suggestions are a dollop of whipped cream, fresh berries, or shaved chocolate. If you like to spice it up a bit, try German Gentlemen Cream with rum!

  • In a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, bring 1 cup heavy cream and erythritol to a simmer. Stir often to keep the cream from burning.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together yolks and ¾ cup heavy cream.
  • Add the egg mixture to the simmering heavy cream. Whisk often and scrape the bottom to prevent the mixture from burning. Bring slowly to a low rolling boil. Remove the saucepan from heat and whisk in vanilla extract.
  • Pour the pudding into 4 serving dishes and let completely chill in the fridge for about 2 hours or overnight.
  • Enjoy with whipped cream, fresh berries, or German fruit pudding.
