Low-Fat Chocolate Pudding

Low-Fat Chocolate Pudding

Jacqueline Whitehart

This healthy dessert is ideal for when you are in need of a chocolate pick-me-up. 

Ingredients

  • 2 Cups whole milk
  • 1 Tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 Cup superfine sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 Tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 Teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

Heat the milk and butter together in a medium-sized saucepan over a gentle heat until the butter has melted. Set aside 4 teaspoons of sugar and stir the rest into the pan until dissolved. 

Meanwhile, place the cocoa, cornstarch, and 2 tablespoons water ina  small bowl and stir well to make a smooth paste. 

Pour the paste gradually into the saucepan, whisking constantly. Continue to whisk while you increase the heat to high and cook until thick and bubbly, about 5 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the vanilla extract. 

Spoon the mixture into 4 ramekins or small glasses and sprinkle a teaspoon of the reserved sugar over each one (this prevents a skin from forming). Leave to cool, then cover with plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for about 4 hours until set.
