Chocolate desserts don’t have to be complicated or a lot of SmartPoints on Weight Watchers. This vegan chocolate pudding is a perfect example of a recipe that only takes 3 ingredients, takes about 5 minutes and is so delicious, you won’t realize it’s healthy.
One of the first things I noticed when Weight Watchers unveiled their Beyond the Scale program was that almost everything that had artificial sugar in it was about double the points. I don’t know about you, but cake just isn’t that important if it’s going to cost me like 10 SmartPoints per slice. No thank you!
Do I think that cutting back on artificial sugars is a good idea? Yes! Absolutely. But I also have a hard core sweet tooth and need something to help curb those cravings when they happen – that isn’t going to kill my Weight Watchers progress.
So, coming up with an easy and delicious dessert has been a bit of a challenge. But here is something you might not know about me! I love a good challenge. I don’t back down and I will do whatever I can to win said challenge. I wanted to find something easy but yet delicious. And chocolate was something that is a must for this challenge.
I realized that my sister has used a recipe very similar to this to make Paleo ice cream. I had to jump on this chance to make a pudding type of dessert instead of ice cream.
I might be the only person on the planet who isn’t a huge fan of ice cream (Halo Top is a different story). It probably has something to do with my sensitive teeth and cold things really bothering me. I told you, I’m probably the only person who isn’t a fan of ice cream.
So, pudding is the answer to my sensitivity issues. I LOVED this pudding – so delicious.
