Where are all of the peanut butter lovers? You’re going to want to try this Peanut Butter Pudding! It’s delicious and low in points.
If you haven’t made your own pudding before you might be surprised how easy it is.
I made homemade chocolate pudding for these Mini Chocolate Pies and they were delicious.
For this Peanut Butter Pudding I used PB2 powder. If you aren’t familiar with it it’s a great replacement for peanut butter. It has fewer calories and less fat than regular peanut butter.
I have used PB2 powder in quite a few recipes, anything from sweet to savory. I’ll include links to those recipes at the bottom of this post.
To make the pudding I started by adding PB2 powder, granulated Splenda, cornstarch and a pinch of salt to a saucepan. I whisked it together then slowly started adding the skim milk.
You want to continue to whisk until all of the milk has been added. Cook the pudding over medium/low heat whisking occasionally.
Once the pudding heats up it will start to thicken. It will seem like it happens all of a sudden, it’s quite noticeable.
At that point you want to remove it from the heat and let it cool.
I like to serve my peanut butter pudding with some fat free whipped cream. You could also add some cocoa powder, or even a chopped peanut for some texture.
Yield: 4 servings (each serving is 1/2 cup – 3 points per serving for blue, green and purple)
- 1/4 cup PB2 powder
- 1/4 cup granulated Splenda
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- Pinch of salt
- 2 cups skim milk
Add the PB2 powder, Splenda, cornstarch and pinch of salt to a saucepan. Whisk it together well.
Slowly add in the skim milk while whisking. Cook over medium/low heat until the pudding thickens. Set aside and let cool, then serve.
