This is like many of the sugar free desserts out there that just don't taste so good. My first difficulty was finding a store that stocked fat free sugar free instant vanilla pudding (I finally bought 4-1.5 oz and 1-1 oz packages). As far as the recipe itself, 2 cups of milk was too little. The consistency was just nasty until I added about another cup. The pudding/milk/cream cheese mixture itself was alright, but nothing special. Next, I used an entire 7 oz package of lady fingers because 3 oz wasn't enough. Last, you better use a larger dish than 8x8 or your dessert will be overflowing like mine. Funny that the picture posted looks like a 13x9 baking pan...
- 1⁄2 cup warm filtered water
- 1 tablespoon instant coffee granules
- 2 (3 1/2 ounce) packages sugar-free instant vanilla pudding mix
- 2 cups nonfat milk (skim)
- 1 (8 ounce) package light cream cheese, softened
- 1 (3 ounce) package ladyfingers
- 2 cups frozen light whipped dessert topping, thawed
- 1⁄2 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa
Directions See How It's Made
- In small bowl, combine the water and coffee granules; stir to dissolve the coffee. Set aside 1 tbsp of the mixture.
- In a large bowl, beat pudding mix and milk until thickened; stir in the coffee mixture(not the reserve).
- Add the cream cheese and beat until smooth.
- Split the ladyfingers and line the bottom of an 8-inch square glass baking dish with half of them.
- Drizzle the ladyfingers with the 1 tbsp reserved coffee mixture.
- Spoon the pudding mixture evenly over the ladyfingers.
- Place the remaining ladyfingers on top of the pudding and top with whipped topping.
- Sprinkle with the cocoa, then cover and chill for 2-4 hours, or until ready to serve.
