I did not go quietly into this decision. Let's say I was irked. My first full day with No Treats I was so miffed I ate more than my share of peanuts-- and usually I don't eat any nuts whole as they are a trigger food for me. Thankfully I snapped out of Eeyoring about it and got busy in the kitchen.
Today is Day 4 and I have finally figured out a FP pudding worthy of posting. The sweetener-free puddings I came up with Monday-Wednesday ranged from "okay" to "definitely better than yesterday" to "GROSS!" to "good, but weird." None were blog-worthy until now. I don't know to what degree my tastebuds have changed in four days, but this one is great! Thank heavens I have found a new FP reason to get out of the bed in the morning!
3/4c warm water
2t coconut butter
1/2t or more cinnamon
dash lemon flavoring
3 or more ice cubes
Whiz water in the blender, gradually adding gelatin. Add coconut butter, then remaining room-temperature ingredients. Add blackberries, then ice cubes two at a time. If pudding suddenly gels after the first two ice cubes, just go with it-- your pudding is done! :) If not keep adding ice cubes until it does. Enjoy the magical transformation of your treat today and of your body over time!
