Recently, I began adding a bit of stevia to the recipe. I finally found a brand that isn’t bitter, NOW Better Stevia. Now my almond milk is perfect!

Sugar-Free Gluten Free Chocolate Parfait

I’ve had several requests for gluten free, Jello instant pudding recipes as well as sugar-free ones. I do not advocate the use of sugar-free jello instant pudding, as it contains¬†aspartame, which is a known cancer causing sweetener. To make this parfait with Chocolate Sugar-Free Fat-Free Jello Instant Pudding¬†it will contain 8 grams of carbs per 1/2 cup. My suggestion is to make my No-Cook Gluten-Free Dairy-Free Sugar-Free Chocolate Mousse, which is pudding-like, and it uses avocado, a healthy fat, and is sweetened with dates. It also does not contain any chemicals or artificial dyes like the package pudding. Nor does it taste bitter. If you’d like to make the no-cook pudding with lower glycemic levels try substituting the dates with a little agave nectar/syrup. Either way, the natural way may be more work, but it’s delicious and a healthier choice. Enjoy! Continue reading “Sugar-Free Gluten Free Chocolate Parfait”
