Well, basically when I concocted this little recipe, I was trying to come up with a lower calorie way of drinking fruit juice. Fruit juice is loaded with sugars, even if natural. I thought that it seemed a great waste of money to buy the "Lite" fruit juice at the market-its never on sale, always costs more and isn't necessarily the flavor I want. So what I came up with is a very simple alternative. Choose whatever 100% fruit juice you like. There's no sense to using anything except 100% juice.
I love chocolate, but sugar is so bad and addictive for me. I find that it fulfills my cravings. Everyone I have made this for swears it is the best hot chocolate that they have ever had. They are always surprised to find out that it has no sugar. The fact that it is pure chocolate is what makes it so good and so fulfilling. I created this myself for me, but I am sure other people have thought of this too.
Yummy low points dessert. Very simple. 1 cup is 3 pts. I usually drain fruit juices into pudding mix first and then blend fruit in, it is just easier for me. You may also want to try this with SF FF Banana Cream Pudding.
This drink is great for a "gals luncheon" or just any old party. It's easily made diabetic (aren't most of my recipes?) and is rather inexpensive to make if you use store-brand. And really, who's gonna know if your pineapple juice is not Dole and your Ginger ale is not Vernors or Canada Dry? Those store-brands come in handy if you're working with a crowd. So just sit back with your drink and think about the pennies you saved! This recipe is for one glass, but is easily made for a group. It's not a punch bowl kinda drink, though. I'd do each individual glass. When you read it, you'll see...
Finally got to try this...it was deeelish, but then again, I've never had "real" eggnog. Mom always makes boiled custard for Christmas and I could literally bathe in that stuff. I love that custard stuff so much I request it year-round. Occasionally, I get some. This is great and I hope other diabetics will give it a try.
