Domino Light Review and Twitter Party!

 I love sugar. I wish I didn't. Recently, I went crazy in the kitchen. I made chocolate pudding from scratch! I've never done that before and I was so giddy with excitement when I realized how easy it was. I was even happier when I tasted it it. I made it with Domino Light and my husband and kids couldn't tell the difference. I couldn't either, and I can always tell when somebody sneaks something into or out of a dish. I followed the recipe that was provided in my package. I skipped the whipped cream. My heavy cream disappeared (thanks to my husband) and I didn't get to try it!

Light Chocolate Pudding & Whipped Cream

Ingredients List

1/4 cup plus 1 Tbsp. - Domino® Light

1/4 cup - unsweetened cocoa powder

1/4 cup - cornstarch

2 cups - 1% milk

1 tsp. - vanilla extract

Whipped Cream

1 cup - heavy cream

1 to 2 Tbsp. - Domino® Light

1/2 tsp. - vanilla extract


In a small saucepan, whisk together all dry ingredients. Whisk in milk, 1/2 cup at a time, until combined. Place over medium heat, and continue to whisk until the pudding becomes thick and begins to bubble. Remove from heat and whisk in vanilla. Pour into medium-sized bowl or individual serving bowls. Place a piece of plastic wrap on the surface to prevent a skin from forming. Chill for at least 2 hours. Serve with fresh whipped cream.
Serves 4.

Whipped Cream: In a large bowl, whip cream with an electric mixer on medium speed until soft peaks are just beginning to form. Add Domino® Light and vanilla; increase speed slightly until stiff peaks form.

Quick Tip

It's always best to use a chilled metal bowl when making whipped cream. Place your bowl in the refrigerator a few hours before you use it.

I also made a red velvet cake with Domino Light. Mmmmmm! I don't like sweetened hot tea but I tried it with Domino Light anyway. It was ok..I gave my mom some to take home and try. She didn't really like it in her tea, but everyone that tried my other Domino Light sweets LOVED them! Visit Domino Light on Facebook and get a coupon so you can try it!
