Gelatin Choc Pudding Recipe

Nourishing Dark Chocolate Gelatin Pudding

OCTOBER 14, 2012 BY

Gelatin is great for when you're busy and just need to get some nourishment. It can be used to thicken soup or smoothies. And it doesn't taste like anything so it won't muck anything up.

Caitlin who wrote the recipe says "This nourishing dark chocolate gelatin pudding is so creamy and delicious!"

Reasons You Need More Gelatin:

  • Contains easy to digest calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, silicon, sulphur and trace minerals
  • Speeds healing from seasonal cold’s and flu’s
  • Builds healthy bone matrix
  • Provides minerals for strong teeth
  • Supports joints, cartilage and tendons with Chondroitin and Glucosamine
  • Fights cellulite
  • Prevents wrinkles
  • Increases muscle mass
  • Speeds metabolism
  • Heals the intestinal lining preventing chronic disease
  • Supportive for over stressed thyroid and adrenal glands
  • Broth with gelatin makes small portions of meat very filling which saves money

Reasons You Need More Chocolate:

  • Chocolate is good whatever the occasion - just make sure you choose a high percentage darker one for maximum antioxidant effect (like the 80% one in this recipe).
