Well I am on day 4 and so far I have found out that I do not like the puddings at all. My coach had me buy 10 of these things, and they suck! I love the chocolate drink though. Do you think it may be that it's the mixing part that is making me not like the puddings? They have lumps big time!

Try to use the puddings as shakes blended with water, ice and flavorings. I love them as shakes! I have several flavors of the Torani Sugar Free syrups. I didn't like them at all as pudding. Now I have one almost daily as a shake.

I hated the pudding at week one too, but now I cannot get enough of the chocolate pudding.

Make sure your mixing in your blender cup and pour into your bowl. I immediately ut it in my freezer for 5 to 10 minutes and get it chilled.

I look forward to it every night now for dessert :)

I've hated the puddings from day 1. They end up way too airy for me and the taste is just.. yuck. I've tried a bunch of different things with them and I still hate them. Oh well lol. And like everyone else said, make sure you're mixing them with your shaker.

I enjoy the puddings as is, but they do make amazing shakes also.

Salted Caramel Shake:

Combine a Dark Chocolate Pudding with water, ice and Walden Farms Caramel Syrup. Blend until smooth and sprinkle with sea salt.

Delicious :D

Also, I don't know if you're eating the puddings immediately, but it makes a world of difference to make them ahead of time and leave in the fridge for at least 2 hours to completely chill and thicken (preferably overnight).

I have to echo SFNinerGirl's advice here with pudding. Make it ahead of time (several packets in a large bowl) and use an immersion blender + get some Walden Farms Marshmallow dip-it seriously thickens puddings into a creamy treat. Also, get several types of sugar free Torani syrups or Walden Farms caramel syrup and chocolate syrup or Stevia flavored drops to add. Make the puddings, portion them into several bowls or ramekins and put them in the fridge overnight or the freezer if you plan on eating the pudding that day.

It turns a blah pudding packet into a dessert you look forward to. The possibilities are endless with the syrups.

Get creative! Here are some of my favorites (add desired water to each of the recipes):

IP strawberry pudding + WF peanut spread + WF marshmallow dip+ Torani sf peanut butter syrup=creamy PB&J

IP dark chocolate pudding + WF caramel syrup + WF marshmallow dip

IP vanilla pudding + IP pina colada drink + WF marshmallow dip + Torani sf coconut syrup=creamy pina colada

Have fun making the packets.

P.S. Your tastes will change over time. What is nasty now will become tasty in a few weeks.:chef:

If they are lumpy add a little more water. Then I always put mine in the freezer for 10-20 min!

If you want a Wendy's frosty put it in for 30-40 min! :)
