Peanut Butter Pudding

Continuing with my experimentation with Tapioca Pudding . . .

Some iterations are bound to be more aesthetically pleasing than others, and this one was so delicious, it is almost indescribable.  Think “peanut butter cup” – only a lot more delicious, and satisfyingly good for you.

I hadn’t quite decided if I had time right then to experiment with this batch, so I just poured it into the quart container to let it cool a bit before putting it into the refrigerator.  There was a small bit of grated chocolate sitting on the counter, so I sprinkled that down the center just for fun.

I got busy, and kind of forgot about experimenting, but then I got hungry . . .

A small scoop of the still warm tapioca mixed with about a tablespoon of crunchy peanut butter, and the tiny bit of chocolate that came off the top produced a taste treat that surprised even me. The cinnamon was handy, so why not?  What a fabulous addition!  ;->

Maybe it was because everything was kind of warm, but the flavors melded together in a most heavenly way.  Because it was still warm, the pudding ran a bit onto itself in the refrigerator container, but that was of no consequence.

Don’t be shy; give it a try!  ;->

      Hey – I’m a maverick! What can I tell you? I’ll try anything (non-poisonous) once! I love the Talenti Chocolate Peanut Butter cup gelato, but at 380 calories for half a cup, I measure it out as ONE tablespoon per cup, using the tapioca as a filler. The tapioca provides a vehicle that complements and stretches out those calories.

      At 30 calories a cup, I’m going to try making the tapioca with almond milk instead of whole milk at 160 calories a cup. I’ll probably succumb to putting in some whole milk powder, but it will be an interesting experiment in painless calorie cutting.
