I'm purposely NOT using protein pudding.
That way it can just be a veggie and a side.
It would certainly work WITH the strawberry pudding

Here's what I did:
8 c chopped rhubarb (I'm using fresh right now...it is in season!)
1/2 c water
in the microwave til soft

Put it in the Vitamix with 1-2 Pks knox gelatin (I actually used Great Lake bulk gelatin) One time I used 1 Tbsp and once I used 2. It was more "custardy" when I used one.

Add sweetener. I added stevia and Mio
Next time I'm using stevia and plain koolaid (or WF strawberry could work, I'm just trying to reduce splenda/sucralose)
Blend all in Vitamix
Pour into eight 1 c ramekins (mine are little dishes I got from Pampered Chef. They have lids)

Your description will be much cooler...pics and all!

I found mine at farmer's market.
