A dessert for diabetics or those who want to reduce their intake of added sugar
Ingredients pour 2 persons
- 250 ml of semi-skimmed milk (low fat)
- 20 g of corn flour (or Maizena)
- 1 tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa
- 1 tablespoon of sweetener (i.e., sugar substitute). For people who must follow a diet that excludes sugar (diabetes, overweight), sweeteners help to limit the frustration of deprivation.
In a bowl, mix the corn flour with a bit of milk. Mix until a fluid mixture is obtained. Set aside.
In a small saucepan, put the rest of the milk and cocoa.
Heat this saucepan over medium heat (7/10): stir regularly. The cocoa will melt in the milk and you get a smooth and hot chocolate milk. The mixture should not boil.
Remove the pan from the heat when the mixture is hot (but not boiling).
Add the corn flour (prepared in step 1) and mix.
Put the pan back on medium heat (7/10) and cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring constantly to avoid lumps.
After 2-3 minutes of cooking, the preparation has thickened enough: remove the pan from the heat. The preparation will continue to thicken during the cooling phase.
Add the sweetener and mix.
Pour the mixture into 2 small jars.
Cover with plastic film and let cool. Put in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour before serving your pudding.
