Low-Fat Chocolate Pudding

Total Time:
30 min
20 min
10 min

6 servings

  • 1/3 cup agave nectar or packed light brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 12 -ounce cans fat-free
  • evaporated milk
  • 2 large egg whites, lightly beaten
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons white chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons semisweet chocolate chips, plus more for topping

Whisk the agave nectar, cornstarch and salt in a heavy-bottomed pot. Whisk in the evaporated milk and egg whites until well combined. Cook over medium-low heat, whisking constantly, until the mixture bubbles and thickens, about 10 minutes. Remove from the heat; stir in 1 tablespoon vanilla.

Transfer 1 cup of the mixture to a medium bowl. Add the white chocolate chips and the remaining 1 teaspoon vanilla and stir until the chips melt. Add the cocoa powder and semisweet chocolate chips to the remaining pudding and stir until the chips melt.

Divide the chocolate pudding among dishes and top with the vanilla pudding. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until set, at least 2 hours. Chop some chocolate chips to sprinkle on top.

    I needed something for my two teenage boys to eat after getting their wisdom teeth pulled. This fit the bill and satisfied their sweet tooth. My daughter loved them too, and especially enjoyed the white chocolate topping, which I was a bit reluctant about. I will be making it again.
    This recipe is outstanding and very, very easy! I had trouble leveling the pudding out in the ramekinsf. This was likely my fault as I may have cooked it a tad too long making it slightly thick (which ultimately resulted in a delicious, rich, almost fudgy pudding - YUM!
    Very good!!!
    The vanilla part is good but once you added in the cocoa its very bitter. I threw it all out.
    WOW!!! That's a low-fat chocolate pudding is yummy!!! Sweet chocolate dessert looks like ice cream in the glass with spoon & napkin!!
