Easy Chocolate Custard recipe that’s velvety smooth, rich and light all at the same time. Plus it’s super easy (only 5 ingredients) and under 100 calories for each cup!
It’s finally Friday. Hallelujah.
How has your week treated you? Are you as ready for a little weekend break as I am? If your answer is yes, then I have a special treat for you!
I want you to pull those cute little custard cups out of hiding this weekend and make this skinny and super easy chocolate custard, mmkay? Why? Because it’s the most sinfully tasting light dessert ever. It’s smooth, creamy and the light chocolate flavor just melts in your mouth.
If you have company coming over this weekend, make this easy chocolate custard and your peoples (yes, I just said peoples) will be so impressed!
This chocolate custard has only 5 EASY ingredients. Blend them up in a blender and pour into four ramekins. Put the ramekins into a skillet and add water to it and cook on the stove top. This is what’s so easy about this recipe! The boiling water in the skillet cooks the custard – and it only needs 10 minutes. Boom. Done. Chill for a couple hours and dessert is served! I love these with a little whipped cream, cinnamon and some fruit on top.
It really is an unbelievably decadent yet skinny dessert. All for only 94 calories per cup. I hope you’ll give it a try. Happy Friday!

I love these easy, 5-ingredient custard cups! These are a perfect way to start the weekend off right! I hope you have a great one!
Thanks Kristine!! xo!
Looks fantastic, I’ve never thought of chocolate custard, but I love the idea!
I couldn’t resist buying some cute custard cups at Home Goods so of course I had to make some Skinny Custard! Thanks Michelle!
Wouldn’t the the plastic wrap stick to the custard,would like to make it today but worried about the plastic wrap.
Hi Elizabeth! It doesn’t stick, I swear! Just press down lightly on the top of the custard. It peels off just fine. The custard is already cooked by that point and set. Let me know how you like it!

I can’t believe this custard is only 94 calories. My wife will go crazy over this, and so will I. Wow.
Thanks Joshua!! It’s seriously so so good. 🙂
If I were to use sugar instead, how much would I use?
I haven’t tried it with sugar but I usually double the amount of Truvia for sugar (if that makes sense). So I used 3 Tbsp. Truvia in this so I would say 6 Tbsp. granulated sugar in place of Truvia should be about right. I hope you love it!
THIS IS SO GOOD!!! Seriously, it tasted like a malted chocolate shake.
You didn’t mention which type of milk, so I used whole milk. I also added a little extra chocolate powder and sugar because… it’s chocolate. Thanks for posting this! I served it with fresh whipped cream and strawberries.
I am SO HAPPY you liked it! Thank you so much for your sweet comment! xo!
Do you think this would work with almond milk to reduce the carbs?
Absolutely. Almond or Oat milk would work perfectly.
