Diabetes-Friendly Chocolate Cherry Pudding

Diabetes-Friendly Chocolate Cherry Pudding
Ingredients
3 tbsp flour
3 tbsp cornstarch
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup stevia
Pinch salt
3 cups 1% milk
2 oz semi-sweet chocolate, finely chopped
1 large egg
2 tsp vanilla
2 cups fresh or frozen (thawed) pitted cherries, halved
 
Preparation
Serves: 12
Serving Size: 1/3 cup
Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes

In a medium saucepan, whisk together the flour, cornstarch, sugar, stevia, and salt. Whisk in the milk until well incorporated, making sure to scrape, the corners of the saucepan. Bring to a gentle simmer over medium heat, stirring frequently. Add in 1 oz of chocolate. Simmer for 2 minutes until the pudding has thickened slightly.

In a small bowl, lightly beat the egg, gradually beat 3/4 cup of the hot pudding into the egg, then whisk the egg mixture back into the pan and cook for 1 minute. Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla. Pour the pudding into a bowl and cover with plastic wrap directly on the surface of the pudding. Cool to room temperature and then refrigerate for 30 minutes. Stir in all except 4 tbsp of the remaining chocolate. Mix in the cherries.

Add the pudding to 8 individual dessert cups. Sprinkle each cup with 1/2 tsp of chopped chocolate.
