This is already a relatively healthy, extremely delicious dessert, but if you want to reduce calories and fat even more, use 2 percent milk instead of whole. Since 2 percent milk is thinner, you will have to cook the pudding a minute or two longer for it to thicken.


  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • Peanuts, for garnish
  • 1banana, sliced, for garnish


1. In a medium saucepan, mix sugar, cornstarch, and cocoa together. Stir in milk with a whisk, and heat to a boil over medium-high heat. Continue to cook for 1 to 2 minutes while stirring until mixture has thickened. Take pan off the heat and whisk in chocolate chips and peanut butter until smooth.
2. Serve warm or place in a container with plastic warp directly on the pudding and refrigerate until chilled, about 3 to 4 hours. Garnish with peanuts and banana slices.
