SWEET POTATO-PACKED PUDDING
Makes 4 Servings
- 1 (1 ounce) package of Vanilla Jell-O Instant Pudding mix (suggested: fat free/sugar free)
- 1 medium sweet potato; cooked and pureed
- 2 cups 1% milk
- 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- Sugar Free Cool Whip (optional)
- 1 molasses cookie; cut into quarters (optional)
Empty Jell-O Pudding dry mix into a large bowl. Add 2 cups of cold 1% milk and whisk for about 2 minutes. Add pureed sweet potato and whisk until well-blended. Pour mixture into 4 small ramekins or bowls, dividing evenly. Top with grated nutmeg and cinnamon. If desired, add a drop of whipped topping and garnish with a piece of molasses cookie. That part is optional, but I really think you should go for it. The whip and cookie just top this pudding off perfectly! Enjoy!
Sometimes finding a new use for an old ingredient is just as easy as this. Instead of thinking of entirely new dishes, you can always think about something you already make and jazz it up by sneaking in the "secret ingredient". That's exactly what I did here and it worked really well. How many desserts can you actually call healthy AND nutritious? Not many. So here is one to add to the list! Just think about it...veggies for dessert! Now there's something you might have thought the kids would never go for, until now.
