Here's a low-fat dessert that captures the flavors of the season. The homemade custard comes together in minutes, but seems like you fussed. —Trisha Kruse of Eagle, Idaho

"Very yummy. Almost taste like there's a spice in it. Nice to have the sauce on the side to add to the fruit as needed."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 22, 2010

"I am reading exchanges from Lilly diabetes planning guide that I received from my dietician. 1 fruit exchange is "3/4 cup blackberries or blueberries; or 1 cup rasberries; or 1 1/4 cup strawberries" This recipe only uses 1/2 cup berries per serving. I don't think the exchanges are correct as listed. I would be healthier with a cup of berries 60 calories and 1/2 cup sugar free pudding 65 calories."
