South Beach Diet - Pudding question??

View Full Version : Pudding question??

01-31-2008, 12:11 PM
Could anyone tell me which kind of pudding is allowed in phase 2. Is it the prepackaged sf/ff type, or can we have the cook and serve sf/ff??

I was also wondering if it would be alright to add a pkg of cook and serve cheese cake flavored pudding mix to the breakfast cheese cakes recipe. I was hoping this would make (replacing much of the splenda) it taste more like true cheese cake?? I know that someone suggested sf/ff jello in the mix.
Oh yeah, and I was also wondering whether or not this would take the recipe from a breakfast selection to a dessert?
My version:
2 8oz pkg of ff cream cheese
1/2 c splenda
1-pkg. sf/ff cook and serve cheesecake flavored pudding mix
1-16 oz container of LF cottage cheese
3/4 c eggbeaters
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp almond ""
Makes 20 cupcakes approx 50 cals. each.
**I did make these and they are oh so good. I don't want to eat anymore until I make sure they are ok.

You can certainly use the cook and serve SF/FF pudding. I use it in my strawberry pie.

I don't see a problem with using the pudding in the cheesecake recipe. I've never seen the cook & serve in anything except vanilla and chocolate though. That's great if you can buy the cheesecake flavor.

ADAGIRL, your recipe looks great and is certainly SBD friendly. You could eat it as breakfast or as a dessert. Who says you can't eat dessert for breakfast as long as it's within our guidelines? :D

Okay, I'm definitely making these this weekend! :drool:

Is there any reason we can't use the instant SF/FF pudding mix? I've got some of those in cheesecake flavor in my pantry!

It sounds like we can Jill!! But, I still have the question about whether or not it will fall under the "Sweet Treat" category if we do?? Even if it does, these cheesecakes are so good. I ran the calories and they come out to about 50 cals per cupcake.

Wow that sounds great... Where did you get the cheesecake flavor ss/ff mix?

I can find the instant kind at any grocery store. It's Jell-o brand. They didn't used to have a sugar free version of it until more recently--I remember seeing the sugar-loaded one and thinking of how good it would be and how annoyed I was that they didn't have a sugar free version, any now they do!

The jello ones are very good, I had continued to eat them even though my other choices were less then stellar. I like the chocolate, double chocolate and mind chocolate.

Yes, the Jello SF/FF instant mixes are also fine. It is just that for some recipes you need the cook and serve. I often use the instant for desserts and mainly use the cook & serve with strawberry pie.

is fat free instant pudding allow in P1

02-02-2008, 12:53 PM
Sorry deviline, I do not think the sf/ff pudding is allowed in P1. Only sf/ff instant gelatin. I may be wrong, someone please correct me if I am.

The pudding has starches so it has to wait until phase 2, sorry!

How does pudding count in phase 2? as a dairy or part of the allowed sweet treats?

02-02-2008, 02:28 PM
I would think it counts towards both. The milk part towards the milk and the rest of it towards the sweet treats.
