I love eating chocolate pudding. It always satisfies my sweet tooth. This recipe makes a lot and you can enjoy one whole cup of pudding for only 1 Weight Watchers point!

- Unsweetened cocoa powder
- Raw agave nectar
- Skim milk (optional)
How to Make Weight Watchers Chocolate Pudding
Weight Watchers Chocolate Pudding is easy to make, but there is some prep involved.
- First, cut the bananas into pieces and chill for about an hour.
- Using a blender, chop the bananas.
- Add cocoa powder, milk and agave and blend well until smooth.
If you do not have agave nectar on hand, it might be possible to substitute honey or maple syrup. I have not tried the recipe with these substitutions, so I do not know how it would turn out. But these things would still keep the recipe at 1 point per cup.
You can freeze this Weight Watchers chocolate pudding recipe and make it an “ice cream.” Do not thaw after freezing, as it will not have the same consistency. But this chocolate pudding recipe is definitely a great substitute for ice cream!
While this recipe used fruit which is a zero point food, you are blending the fruit so it may be possible that the fruit counts as points. I reached out to Weight Watchers for an answer. Weight Watchers says that blended fruit, like in a smoothie, counts as points because you drink it. Drinking liquids has a different digestive process than eating solid foods. Drinking also makes you feel less full then when eating solids.
Is pudding more like a smoothie or more like solid food? I asked Weight Watchers on my app this question and they said “Unless you are drinking it, it would remain zero.” This means that since you eat pudding, the fruit does not count as points. This make me very happy, as fruit is actually a lot of points when you drink them in a smoothie. The key is everything in moderation. Don’t eat a ton of pudding just because it is low in points.

Just to let you know...agave nectar is actually no different from high fructose corn syrup in terms of is fructose content and effect on the liver/body. You would be much better off with honey, maple syrup...When combined with fibre and fat, these sweeteners won't drastically alter your blood sugar levels; however, without the fibre and fat, they will...

@Monika, I don't think I made any claims about that in the blog post.

I am just wondering if I can substitute the agave nectar with something else that is natural and still be only 1 pt.

Can you use Almond milk in stead?

Yes! You can use honey or maple syrup, which are common substitutes for agave nectar. I have not tried those, so I’m not sure how it would turn out.
