WW One Minute Chocolate Pudding

weight watcher's chocolate pudding www.realfoodblogger.com


Just because I am trying to lose weight doesn't mean I want to feel deprived.
My one-minute Chocolate Pudding recipe is a perfect way to stick to my weight loss program but still enjoy eating something very decadent !!

Do you remember your mom making homemade chocolate pudding, and it had a skin on top and was so delicious? This one is similar, but it will only take a minute to make and this contains healthy real food ingredients.

It's the best dessert ever and it still qualifies as a Weight Watchers dessert! However, for kids, you can add real peanut butter and not worry about the fat content.


The key to weight loss for me 
is finding foods and desserts that are low in calories, healthy, easy to make, and good substitutes for higher-calorie foods. That way I can still eat things I love, but just a healthier skinnier version.

Weight Watcher's chocolate pudding

This vegan gluten-free recipe is rich, creamy, and chocolatey.  I divide this recipe into three or four ramekins. The entire recipe is only 1 or 2 points on the blue program!!! Yes!!

Hot or Cold 
Because it's quick and easy to make, I can make it any time I want a treat. Surprisingly, I enjoy this creamy pudding just as much hot out of the microwave as I do after it's chilled.
When it's hot, it tastes like hot fudge. When it's chilled it tastes like chocolate pudding.

Microwave for 1 minute or Bake in the oven for 8 minutes
This wonderful dessert is gluten-free, vegan, parve, and oil-free and can be made in the microwave in 1 minute. If you don't like to microwave, it can be cooked in the oven for 8-10 minutes at 350 degrees in a preheated oven.

Unsweetened Cocoa Powder 

You can make this recipe two different ways.
If you add more almond milk(6 tablespoons), it comes out like real chocolate pudding. If you use less almond milk (2 tablespoons), it comes out like a cross between chocolate pudding and fudgy cake.
With less milk, it is thicker and makes 3 small ramekins.
With more milk, it makes about 4- 5 ramekins.

Either way is absolutely delicious and the entire recipe is just one or two points.
However, this healthy dairy-free recipe is not just for weight loss.

Kids Love it Too
It is a perfect dessert for kids or any member of the family. If you are trying to eat healthier, a good place to begin is with desserts.

This delicious pudding has no added sugar, a significant amount of protein, and vitamins and minerals from the banana and cocoa powder. It meets gluten-free, dairy-free, and egg-free standards. Substitute nut powder for the nut powder if you like. The recipe will still work.

It's a guilt-free snack that everyone seems to love!

Can't Eat Peanuts? 
If you have a peanut allergy and are not following WW to lose weight, try my healthy chocolate pudding which is also fast and easy, rich,  creamy, and delicious.

My Notes: 

1. You can add a frozen or fresh pitted cherry to the top
2. Top with whipped cream or almond whipped cream
3. Cover with sliced strawberries-
