Ingredients Needed

  1. 1 (4-serving size) package sugar-free instant chocolate pudding mix
  2. 2 cups (480 ml) Carb Countdown dairy beverage
  3. 1 cup (240 ml) heavy cream, chilled
  4. 1 tablespoon (10 g) sugar-free instant vanilla pudding mix
  5. 1 tablespoon (14 g) butter
  6. cup (60 g) almond meal
  7. cup (35 g) shredded coconut
  8. 2 tablespoons (11 g) Cocoa powder
  9. 2 tablespoons (25 g) polyol sweetener
  10. 1 batch No-Sugar-Added Cherry Pie Filling

Cooking Instructions

Mix the chocolate pudding mix with the Carb Countdown dairy beverage and stir with a whisk for 2 minutes or until thickened.

Set aside.

Pour the chilled heavy cream into a deep mixing bowl.

Add the vanilla instant pudding mix and use an electric mixer to whip until cream is stiff?do not overbeat, or you'll get sweetened vanilla butter! (Also do not try to do this step in a blender or food processor.

It simply will not work.

) Scoop out 1 cups (360 ml) of the whipped cream and add to the bowl with the chocolate pudding; fold in with a rubber scraper.

In a medium skillet, melt the butter and add the almond meal, coconut, cocoa powder, and polyol sweetener.

Stir over medium heat for about five minutes or until toasted.

Remove from heat.

Okay, we're on the home stretch.

Get out 6 pretty dessert dishes?preferably clear parfait glasses so that everyone can see the layers.

Spoon half of the chocolate mixture into the bottom of the dessert dishes and then top with half the coconut mixture and half the cherry mixture.

Repeat the layers, reserving just a couple of teaspoons of the coconut mixture.

There should be just enough whipped cream left in the bowl to put a little dollop on top of each serving.

Sprinkle the reserved little bit of coconut on top of that and chill for at least a few hours before serving.
