___________________________Does anyone have a favorite recipe for chocolate pudding - the kind like our Mother or Grandmother used to cook on top of the stove?
________________________________________I've used the s/f instant puddings once in a great while - more for DH than myself - and I've also made them with diluted cream (1:1 with water) instead of milk. The texture is a little different, but as a processed instant product goes, it's acceptable. Nothing like grandma used to make . . .
____________________________Most instant sugar free puddings still have carbs and when you mix with milk that even increases the carb load. Here is a recipe from one of my favorite low carb websites- Laura Dolson
Low-Carb Chocolate Mousse Recipe - Sugar-Free Low-Carb Chocolate Mousse
_____________________________________Another thing I have done when I want a chocolate fix is to mix Trader Joes greek yogurt ( 7 carbs per cup) and some sour cream together. Then I stir in some low carb chocolate whey powder and a splash of Torani sugar free syrup. I've also done the same thing with heavy whipping cream and whip it in my Magic Bullet and add some chocolate whey powder or dark cocoa. Another low carb website I use a lot is Linda's Low Carb Menus & Recipes - Home She has tons of dessert recipes.
I know this was your first full day with your meter. How was your fasting and your after meal readings?I had it a little while ago, and it was fabulous. I wouldn't expect sugar free pudding to taste great. I put a dollop of whipped topping and some flax meal on top. Bad news, I got a 30-pt. spike from it, which is odd, because there's 0 sugar and only 3 carbs. But then I'm new at this whole diabetes thang.
