The other day my mother-in-law dropped off some strawberries from a local farm. Aren’t they beautiful?
I used them to create a guilt-free way to get a chocolate fix!
How does this sound: a dessert that has the taste of a chocolate covered strawberry, with low calories, and minimal effort.
I thought that sounded good too!
I love this chocolate covered strawberry pudding because you get all the taste of a chocolate covered strawberry with fewer calories, less mess and hardly any effort!
This dessert can be whipped up in 10 minutes and only requires 4 ingredients which makes it a really easy on your budget.
- 1 1.4 oz package sugar free instant chocolate pudding (do not follow directions on the box)
- 1 cup milk
- 3 cups fresh cut strawberries
- 1 cup mini marshmallows
- Using a whisk, stir the pudding mix and milk together in a small bowl until the pudding is dissolved (about 2 minutes)
- In a larger bowl, gently fold together the pudding & milk mixture, strawberries and marshmallows.
- Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, then serve.
- This pudding tastes best fresh. You can refrigerate the leftovers but be aware the marshmallows may get a little mushy after a day or so.
In case you’re curious, here’s the calorie count:
- Sugar free pudding mix: 120
- 1 cup skim milk: 103
- 3 cups strawberries: 159
- 1 cup mini marshmallows: 160
TOTAL: 542 calories with 136 calories per serving!
I call that a smart way to enjoy some chocolate!
