Keto Butterscotch Pudding – Important Tips

Sweetener – I am using a combo of golden sweetener (monk fruit and erythritol blend) and molasses to get that butterscotch-like taste and texture. Molasses gives you only 1g net carbs per serving. You can substitute molasses with brown monk fruit sweetener.

Thickener – Xanthan gum is goto ingredient that can be used as a thickening agent or use guar gum at a 1:1 ratio. Also, sub with one extra egg yolk if you like.

Store – Keep them in sealed jar containers and store them in the fridge for up to 3 days maximum, it will become watery and begin to separate if kept for more than 3 days. Don’t freeze this keto butterscotch pudding, because pudding like this loses its consistency after being thawed.
