Health Twist
Everyone likes to indulge once in a while! This is a great dessert to indulge in, because one serving gives you that fabulous comfort-food taste but with lower fat and calories. You'll feel that you're taking care of yourself and eating well at the same time, shares noted cardiologist, Dr. Roger Blumenthal, Johns Hopkins Hospital.
Even though this dessert could be served hot from the oven, let it stand a bit before serving so the pudding isn't too hot to eat, especially for kids.
If you are not a cappuccino lover, just leave out the coffee.
