Can you all believe that Valentine’s day is in two days? And that February is halfway over? I certainly can’t. Although I’m sort of ready for warmer weather. As you know, I’m currently in Mexico and a gal could get used to this view everyday, I tell you. It’s going to be hard going back to sub zero temperatures.
Don’t even get me started on the food, it’s amazing. So much fresh seafood, seviches and chips and salsa. I’m in HEAVEN. But, if I don’t leave this heaven I’m going to eventually weigh 100000 pounds. Which is why this low-fat chocolate pudding with blueberries is going to be on my Valentine’s Day menu. I want a dessert but also don’t want a muffin top.
Who doesn’t love chocolate pudding? It’s one of those all-American desserts you grow up with. Except it’s usually served in a tiny plastic jar and contains about 14,000 preservatives. I like my pudding like I like my men, free of crap and nice and smooth. (Oh I went there).
Not only is this dessert perfect for Valentine’s Day because it’s guilt free, it’s really pretty too! If you wanted, you could sub in raspberries or strawberries to make it more Valentiney. I just had blueberries in the fridge and we all know how much I love them. I’d put them on every meal I ever eat and never get sick of them. They pair so perfectly with the rich, luscious chocolate pudding and the whipped cream.
I could talk about how much I love this jar of tall, dark and sexy pudding, but the wifi here is REALLY spotty so I’m just going to grab a margarita and lay by the beach instead 🙂 Hope you all have an amazing Monday!
