Forgive me, after posting a bit ago I totally forgot that I had some interest in making some low-cal, microwave chocolate pudding!

Here’s the main recipe:

4 tsps. BOTH corn starch and cocoa powder
1/4 C or to taste of sugar substitute (I switch off between splenda, truvia and agave and use about the equivalent of 1/4 C)
dash of salt
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 C Almond Milk (vanilla and only 30 cal! and lots of protein/calcium)  

sometimes I like to add 1/4 tsp of cinnamon for a bit of a Mexican chocolate flavor.  Or, for those who love mocha, add 1 tsp of either instant coffee or instant espresso.

I’ve got all kinds of other ideas in my head:  switch out the vanilla for some other extract.  Rum, raspberry, almond-so many choices.  Like the combo of orange and chocolate?  Use some orange zest.  Want some crunch and can afford a few more calories?  Top with some kind of toasted nut, coconut or even a tablespoon of granola.

Stir dry ingredients in a large mug until well-blended.  whish in milk.  It won't mix in too well. YOU MUST CONTINUE TO STIR REALLY WELL BETWEEN ZAPPINGS! Microwave in 40 sec intervals until hot and thick.  cool/chill-ENJOY!

Love it
