Instant Chocolate Pudding – Full of Protein and Fiber

Healthy_chocolate_pudding

I’m so excited, and I just can’t hide it!

Seriously, this chocolate pudding is perfect! In just three minutes you get this chocolate dainty that is melting in your mouth. And the best part is that the whole dessert is just for you! Why share this deliciousness with someone if you can eat it all by yourself? This is awesome, right?

Ever since I discovered this recipe, I have made this pudding so many times, both for myself and for my husband, who absolutely loved this dessert – and my hubby is really picky, believe me.

On a healthy side everything is great – one serving of this pudding contains 12g of protein, tons of calcium (40% daily value) and fiber (14% DV). Plus, this instant chocolate pudding is high in magnesium, phosphorus, potassium and riboflavin – all these in only 177 calories per serving!

It is truly a perfect dessert.

Ingredients:
Corn starch – 1 tbsp
Dry Milk, nonfat – 3 tbsp
Brown Sugar – 1 tsp
Truvia baking blend – 1 tsp*
Milk, nonfat – 1 cup
Cocoa powder – 2 tbsp

* If you don’t like the taste of stevia, replace this blend with 1 tbsp of your favorite sugar.

1. Mix all dry ingredients. Heat the milk in the microwave for 1 minute. Mix milk and dry mixture well, to avoid lumps.
2. Put the mixture  in the microwave on max for 2 – 3 minutes. Stir well every 20-30 seconds. The mixture will start thicken after the first minute.
3. Cool the pudding for a couple minutes. It will become thicker.
Serve and enjoy!

    Hi lana,
    Me again, just wondering what I might use instead of dry milk powder (just found mine and it’s nasty). Thanks

      Hi Amanda,

      You can skip dry milk completely, just add 3/4 cup of milk instead of 1 cup.

      Or, you can use 1 cup of milk as stated in the recipe but add an extra pinch of starch.

      Hope it helps:)

      Happy baking,

    Just wondering if this pudding keeps in the fridge? (I was thinking of this for my girl’s school lunches so I don’t have to buy the store-bought ones with all of those awful additives). Merci. Also, do you have a recipe for other flavours as well?

      Hi Amanda,

      I kept it in a fridge for up to 3 days. As for the other flavors, you can omit cocoa and add vanilla extract to have a perfect vanilla pudding:)

      Also check the Recipes page, Puddings and Custards section – there are a few recipes there that you can make for your daughter.

      I hope it helps!
      Happy baking,

    This recipe looks really healthy.

    By the way, for those wanting to cut down/eliminate corn in their diet, arrowroot powder instead of corn starch works great.
