"We love this, the butterscotch and pumpkin pair so well. I didn't have sugar free pudding on hand so I used instant butterscotch (regular). I'm looking forward to trying the sugar free/lower cal version. This is a keeper. Thank you for sharing this!"

"Goodness people....I get the whole healthy, nothing artificial and only natural foods go into this body but take a prozak!!! Carolyntimm and Bearce you don't have to use the artificial sweetners. If your skills are so good then you would realize that you can make homemade pudding with Stevia, which is natural an no calories, in place of the instant pudding. It will stay the same nutritional values. I think it's wonderful that TOH puts these recipes out there for people who are trying to eat better and take care of themselves. So thank you TOH for doing what you do and please CONTINUE to do so in spite of the nay sayers."
