lemon coconut puddingSpecial Notes:

You can sweeten anyway you like: stevia, monk fruit, xylitol, maple syrup, or raw honey.  The maple syrup and honey would increase the amount of sugar and carbs on this and it would not be a keto recipe anymore.

You have to use gelatin in order to get the consistency correct.  A bone broth or collagen protein will make this more like a smoothie instead.  You need the gelatin to make this gelatinous.  I use this brand of gelatin because it is pastured-raised without pesticides or chemicals.  This is not like a thick Greek yogurt style but rather a very ‘fluffy’ type pudding.

Dr Jockers Comments:

This is a low-carb, ketogenic style recipe that is loaded with collagen protein that helps improve your skin, hair, nails, joints and intestinal membrane.  Grass-fed beef gelatin or collagen protein is an outstanding protein source for anyone looking to reduce the effects of aging, improve their beauty characteristics, strengthen their joints and heal leaky gut syndrome.

Coconut milk provides a great dose of anti-inflammatory medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) that are easily metabolized by the body and used to burn fat.  Lemon juice is rich in vitamin C and citrus bioflavonoids which are classified as vitamin P.

The combination of vitamin C and vitamin P helps to improve deep capillary permeability, which brings more oxygen to the tissues of the body.  This improves energy production and detoxification.

I like to use lemon or vanilla flavored Sweet Leaf stevia to enhance those two flavors in this recipe.  This is great as a breakfast, a snack or dessert.  Try this one out and let us know what you think in the comments box below.

  1. I am on a calorie restricted Ketogenic diet. Is there a nutrient count or do I have to figure it out yourself?

    1. I’m on a me to diet and am not looking at all. What’s wrong?
      Do I dare try this recipe?

  2. Has anyone tried making this yet? I think it sounds good but not sure about buying that much gelatin to try one recipe that I may not like.

  3. I’m literally lemon crazy, I put lemon juice on everything. I put it in hibiscus tea, tulsi tea and green tea, splatter my avocados with it…the little lemon is truly magical in what it does for the body! I have even used lemon slices to relieve a headache that I’d had for three days. When you inhale the fragrance of the flowers or the fruit it has a powerful effect, I suspect it has highly healing energy. I even chew the pulp when the goody is squeezed out, LOL!

  4. Good Morning,
    Thanks for all of the info., etc…
    Want to try making this pudd, however, i do not use gelatin.
    (veggie based is ok) Any thoughts? Thank-you…j.

  5. Dying to try this recipe but don’t have beef gelatin, yet.
    can I use packets of regular unflavored gelatin from grocery?
