    Just made this tonight…replaced the sugar with splenda and used 1% milk instead of 2%. Came out really good…however, 6 servings? I think not. My fiance and I split it between us and I figured it's about 226 calories for 2 servings.

      Bryan, The point of the Skinny Mini Desserts concept is to have a small serving, which is satisfying while allowing you to have a special treat. I made 6 servings in 3.2 oz dessert dishes (see pic). My husband ate one and asked, “What about seconds?” lol I ate one and was perfectly satisfied without feeling full. Of course, some people might eat the entire dessert! I’m trilled you and your finance enjoyed! Next, try the Mini Strawberry Cheesecake, which makes 8 servings. 😀

    What is Mild Honey? I can't find (or afford) coconut palm sugar and I would love to make some of your desserts. It just seems like the sugar substitutes are out of reach for me. I also live in Hawaii with limited places to find these uniqe health foods. Thanks

    • SkinnyMs says:

      By mild, it means a milder flavored honey. You can use any honey you want to though. Hawaii has some great ones!

    Does not mention when to add the sugar….although presume it is with other dry ingredients.

  • Sarah says:

    I am in college and new to the whole cooking and preparing food thing. Is there anyway the make all 6 servings but safe the other 5? Will it still taste the same if it is refrigerated? Thanks in advance!

    • Skinny Ms. says:

      Sarah, Bananas quickly turn brown and slimy once out of the peeling. I wouldn’t recommend it for this recipe. However, the Skinny Mini Cheesecakes can be refrigerated for later eating.

      You could make the pudding and then only top and assemble the one you are going to eat with the sliced banana. Save the pudding for the next day and then slice the banana for that one when you want to eat it.
      Also, I would recommend heating the milk and sugar on low heat, then temper the beaten egg and beat it into the warm milk, then add the cornstarch, this method will give you a real pudding texture.

  • michelle says:

    can i assume that vanilla means vanilla flavoring (the liquid)?

    what is the count on this? Especially the CHO
