Healthy Peanut Butter-Chocolate Pudding

Once upon a time, Espresso and Cream was a food-only blog. Do you remember those days? If you’ve been reading for the 6+ years I’ve been blogging (where did the time go?!) then you probably do remember that I used to consistently post recipes and very little about anything else.

Sometimes I look back at the days of leisurely cooking meals for two with a lot of nostalgia. These days it’s more of a dinnertime rush to get a meal on the table and everyone fed than a cooking or dining experience, but we’re figuring it out as we go.

Although eating actual dessert is a rare occurrence at our house, healthy desserts are  must on the daily. I’m constantly tinkering around with figuring out a nice balance of what tastes like a treat and is actually packed with nutrition and low in sugar. This chocolate pudding has served both as a dessert for me and an indulgent snack or breakfast for Ainsley. Both of us give it a stamp of approval!
