On a recent grocery shopping trip at Publix, I spotted a new treat in the refrigerated section, next to the Jello Temptations. It was bread pudding from Kozy Shack, an odd little company that specializes in low-fat, sugar-free, and as their website says “wholesome” puddings and desserts.
I love bread pudding, especially when it is baked and crusty on top. Obviously the little plastic container from Kozy Shack would not be like homemade, but I was curious enough to buy the cinnamon raisin variety.
A few days later I was making an impromptu dinner for me and LC and served the bread pudding for dessert. Each individual 4 oz. serving has only 160 calories, 29 grams of carbs, 19 grams of sugar, 5 grams of protein, and 3.5 grams of fat. OK, not exactly healthy, but certainly better than a restaurant serving that could have more than 800 calories.
Using a knife, I ran around the edges of the plastic containers to release the pudding onto dessert plates, then heated them in the microwave briefly, just until warmed. I topped each serving with Reddi-wip….gotta keep it classy!
The verdict? The texture was mushier than I like, more pudding than bread. But the flavor was acceptable, something I would buy again if there were a dessert emergency!
