In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, I’ve designated February sweet treat month here at Mother Rimmy’s.
Earlier in the week when we served up fruity muffins with a steaming cup of coffee for breakfast, I told you that I wasn’t much on sweets – salty foods were my indulgence of choice.
But there are a few sweet treats that stop me in my tracks, and a silky smooth pudding with a dollop of whipped cream is one of them.
Fortunately for me, it’s easy to skinny up a pudding recipe, so I never feel like I’ve overindulged when I enjoy this creamy dessert.
I used cara cara oranges in this sweet to eat treat. They came at the recommendation of a good friend, and I was delighted with the results.
Cooking up this pudding was truly as easy as dumping low fat milk, orange juice, orange zest, sweetener, vanilla and cornstarch into a pan, then whisk, whisk, whisking until it thickened.
Pour your concoction into a bowl, cover it with plastic so it doesn’t get that nasty skin on top, then wait a few hours.
That’s the challenging part!
Why spend money of a box of pudding, when you can make it at home with wholesome ingredients? This pudding tastes like an orange creamsicle. It takes me back to childhood summers and the creamsicles we’d buy from the popsicle truck. Fun times!
How’s this for a start on our month of low calorie desserts? Any requests for the rest of the month? I’m always open to suggestions. Simply leave me a comment, and I’ll see what I can do.
