Primal Pots de Crème


Instead of serving pie this Christmas, try this decadent, sugar-free, chocolate dessert — Primal Pots de Crème. The coconut milk will provide healthy saturated fatty acids that can help lower cholesterol levels, improve blood pressure, and prevent heart attacks or a stroke. It’s a great option for anyone with dairy and nut- or grain-based allergies. Best of all, the preparation is so easy you will not mind making each guest their own individual serving.


  • 1 (13.5 ounce) can coconut milk
  • 2 egg yolks
  • ¼ tsp vanilla stevia
  • pinch celtic sea salt
  • 4 ounces chocolate chunks


  1. Place coconut milk in a medium saucepan.
  2. Stir in egg yolks, stevia, and salt.
  3. Heat over medium-heat 5-10 minutes, stirring constantly.
  4. Remove saucepan from heat.
  5. Transfer mixture to vitamix, and add chocolate.
  6. Blend on high for 30 seconds.
  7. Transfer scant ½ cup of mixture into 4 ramekins.
  8. Refrigerate overnight or for 8 hour.
  9. Serve.
