Hints from Herb—Make that pudding taste like chocolate

February 14, 2012 15:07 – 15:07

Normally, I make everything from scratch, and buying mixes is painful. But, I have to strictly restrict my intake of carbohydrates, and haven’t yet delved into the dark arts of how to make pudding set without using high-carb ingredients like real sugar and corn starch. So, I’m trying to find an off-the-shelf way to make low-carb desserts that actually taste appealing. Modification is my middle name.

When making this stuff, add a tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa powder when you add the pudding mix. It adds only 3 grams of carbs to the whole batch, and ensures that the resulting pudding actually tastes like chocolate, since it actually contains chocolate.

And, don’t buy Ozbo’s 24-pack of this stuff via Amazon. From my local grocery store (Shoppers Food Warehouse), it’s $1 per box. From Amazon/Ozbo, bought in batches of 24, it’s $27.28 + $6.28 for shipping for 24 boxes. That comes out to about $1.40 per box.
