      This was fine - just okay, IMO. I won't make it again. Maybe my expectations were too high, but the couscous gave the pudding a funky texture - I was expecting creamier, tapioca-like consistency, but my MIL asked, "what's the gritty stuff?" Pudding and fruit would have been fine - no need to add the couscous, unless, since it's whole wheat, you're absolutely desperate to add more fiber to your diet!

      It saved me! Last night, my husband cooked up a frozen apple pie with 495 calories, 29 grams of fat per slice! I knew I was in trouble so I came searching for a dessert I could make for myself that would satisfy my sweet tooth with ingredients I had on hand (I used vanilla pudding instead of banana cream). YUMMY! My husband even had a bite and loved it. He was surprised when I told him it was Core. Even the other kids were wanting some. A definite keeper!

      Fun and tasty dessert - even the family members NOT dieting thought it was ok. I liked the couscous in the pudding - reminded me of tapioca. I don't like bananas, so I used vanilla pudding and strawberries and blueberries for the fruit. Thanks for posting.
