1. Easy Low Carb Dessert Pudding
Puddings remind us of our fondest childhood memories; they’re silky and creamy, but also messy and decadently sweet. ¨Puddings are all about pleasure, but also about simplicity; no pudding recipe should ever be complicated.
Now, using only two ingredients? That’s incredible, and the resulting pudding is totally awesome. Instant pudding and heavy whipping cream – that’s it. Make the most out of this treat by trying all the distinct pudding flavors out there. They’re all delicious, but you’ll definitely find some more of your style than others.
- Heavy Whipping Cream
- Sugar-free instant pudding, any flavor you want!
