This Blog Brought to you by… quick and easy desserts.

Ok, I was going to go the Sesame Street route and talk about vitamin B.

True Confession: I want more research before I just spout off what I think I know about vitamins and schtuff.

So, you get the recipe I made for dessert that worked well yesterday, and even better today.


Instant Kashi ® Pudding

A Recipe constructed based on Trish's thought-process (using lots of parenthesis)

Find an instant pudding lying around your kitchen. (Or, actually preplan and buy one. You can even go healthy and get a lowfat or low-sugar kind… I honestly don't know if they come in organic and instant yet…)

1 - 1 1/2 cup/s of your favorite Kashi ® cereal (to make up for the fact that, if you're me, you grabbed regular old unhealthy instant Jell-O ® pudding. Cheesecake flavor to be exact.) (I picked the fiber one, but the honey puffs would also make a good mix. The fiber one (which I can't actually remember the name of because I finished off the box) made a nice grape-nut pudding consistency on the second day.)

Prepare the pudding per instructions.

Well… mostly. I actually substituted 1/4 cup (out of 2 cups) milk with amaretto coffee creamer. Gave it a great flavor. French Vanilla would probably make a fab substitute, too - or any favorite flavor with vanilla pudding.

About 1 minute into the "beating" add in about a cup to a cup and a half of cereal. (The contents of a little under a full breakfast bowl… or whatever you have to finish off the box that has been open for a few weeks). Fully incorporate.

If you find another mostly empty box of cereal that is the mess of your kitchen, cover/fill the bottom of ramekins or sundae cups.

Pour the cereal-laden pudding into 4 + ramekins/dessert cups.

Chill for a minimum of 10 minutes to enjoy the crunch of the cereal with the creaminess of the pudding, or up to a day to get a grape-nut pudding-like consistency.

Sweet eats!
