Every so often, I like to make a treat for my dad who is a diabetic. For this recipe, I used Xylitol, which is a natural sweetener. I buy it under the name "Ideal".
serves 6 ( 4 points +)
- 6 T. Ideal brand Xylitol ( or use regular sugar if you like)
- ¼ c. baking cocoa
- 2 T. cornstarch
- dash of salt
- 1-½ c. skim milk
- ½ tsp. vanilla
- 6 Nutter Butter Sandwich Cookies, crushed
- 2 large bananas, sliced
- 12 T. light whipped cream
In a heavy saucepan, combien the first four ingredients. Gradually whisk in milk. Cook on medium high, whisking constantly until mixture thickens. Place mixture in a bowl and cover the surface with plastic wrap. Refrigerate until cooled.
Layer parfait cups with pudding, bananas and crushed cookies. Repeat. Top each parfait with 2 T. light whipped cream.
