(no-sugar, lowfat)

This is one of the recipes I developed for the Fast Track to Fitness website where I was the recipe editor for several years.

Yield: 4 (approximately 1/2 cup) servings

Ingredients

Pudding Cups

  • 16 ounces unsweetened Greek yogurt 1/2 cup lowfat or fat-free sour cream
  • 1/2 cup 1% milk (or enough to obtain the consistency you like)
  • 1 (1.5-ounce) package sugar-free instant chocolate pudding mix
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract

Optional Toppings

  • Sugar-free whipped topping (such as Cool Whip)
  • Lightly toasted sliced almonds

Instructions

  1. Combine the yogurt, milk, pudding mix and almond extract in a bowl, then whisk until well-blended. Divide evenly between four small bowls. Refrigerate until set.
  2. Before serving, if desired, top each pudding cup with a dollop of whipped topping and a sprinkling of toasted, sliced almonds.

Notes

Although this no-sugar, low-fat dessert has no cream cheese in it, it tastes a lot like a softly set cheesecake. It's more dense than fluffy, but not as dense as traditional cheesecake.
