Low carb chocolate, coconut and coffee baked custards

Preparation time : 15 mins + 1 hour refrigeration time Cooking time : 40 mins Servings : 4
  • 1 tin coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup xylitol granules
  • 4 tsp dark cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • pinch salt
  • 1/3 cup strawberries, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup pecan nuts, chopped
  • 1/4 whipped cream, to serve

For the baked custards, pre heat the oven to 170°C. Combine all of the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Divide the mixture between 4 ramekins or glass serving jars. Place it in a deep oven dish. Add enough water to the oven dish to come half way up the ramekins/jars. Bake for 40 minutes. Allow the custards to cool down in the baking dish with the water. Remove it from the water and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.


For the salsa, stir the strawberries and pecan nuts together.


To serve, top each cooled custard with a dollop of whipped cream and a spoonful of the salsa.


TIP: The coconut cream can easily be replaced with cream, if a non-coconut flavour is preferred.
