    I am on the 17 Day Diet and always looking for something sweet so this low fat, low carb, low sugar pudding stood out to me, and it was very good after I tweaked it a bit... My first try was a fail, I cut the recipe in half and used fat free cottage cheese instead of ricotta. The pudding was more like a thick soup rather than pudding. The second time(recipe still in half), I used fat free cream cheese(softened) instead of ricotta, 6 packets of truvia, and a whole envelope of gelatin (if making the full recipe I recommend 2 envelopes of gelatin). Delicious! Perfect consistency, sweetness, and texture. Just what I was looking for. Added warm sugar free choc. syrup to top and made a decadent desert. The warmed preserves is also wonderful!

    It was very good, but I'll reduce the amount of sugar next time.

    So creamy and delicious. I did use regular 1/2 and 1/2 though as well as regular sugar. The cold pudding with warm jam was wonderful. A very simple yet tasty desert-doesn't feel heavy -though it is high in calories !
