Reviews for Pina Colada Pudding Cups
"creamy and not overly sweet"
"The only change I made was to cut the recipe in- half. It is so good!!! This is a definite keeper for us. Be sure and give it a try."
"I used white chocolate sugar free instant pudding. Everything else I did exactly as the recipe states. My husband said the only thing wrong with the recipe was that it didn't make enough. He is ready for me to make more. My son usually doesn't like coconut but decided to try it and he loved the toasted coconut. This is definitely a recipe I will keep and make again and again."
"So light and refreshing. I made it exactly as the recipe indicates and wouldn't change a thing."
"Skipped the toasted coconut and used light cool whip instead of Dream Whip....but it was still a WONDERFUL dessert. Will be making it again very soon!!"
"The fastest way to toast coconut is by using the broiler. It only takes a few seconds. Make sure to watch the coconut closely as it will burn. Hope this helps."
"Definitely, it was awesome. Just great for a hot, summer dessert. I give it five starts"
"Loved this recipe, omitted the toasted coconut as I had none on hand, but still was delightful. Sliced some banana on top and had for breakfast the next morning, yummy!"
"http://lowcarbdiets.about.com/od/questionsandanswers/a/fatfreeproducts.htmWhenever you see "trans fat free" on a label, you should look at the ingredient list. If you see "partially hydrogenated oil", that is trans fat. If you see "hydrogenated oil", that is most probably trans fat. If you see "fully hydrogenated oil", that is supposed to be very low in trans fats."
"If it were 'fully' hydrogenated, don't you think they would say so, to eliminate doubt? Yep. The fact that they don't speaks volumes."
"I made this and used 1/2 of the recipe. I used a whole tub of cool whip but next time will cut it down to half. Didn't have any coconut extract and it was still very good."
"I made this dessert last weekend for my husband and I. I cut the recipe in half. It was very good and easy to make. He was pleased with it."
"a light and refreshing finish to a summer meal!!"
"Made this over the weekend using 1/2 container of lite cool whip folded into pudding mixture instead of dream whip.Flavor was really good but if using cool whip cut down on the amount of milk as mine was a little runny but not to much it was still really good."
"This tastes wonderful. However, I found it to be a little runny, so the next time I make it, I am reducing the amount of milk by 1/2 cup. If it still is a little runny, I will reduce the amount of milk by another 1/2 cup. Over all, everyone that the dessert loved it."
"I made this recipe while camping over the weekend. It was quick and easy to make (especially important since our only "refrigeration" was a cooler), and absolutely delicious. My fellow campers raved over the taste (even our most picky eater)!"
"Hydrogenated oils are not trans..only partially hydrogenated are. If an oil is fully hydrogentate, it is not "broken apart" which is what trans means."
"Read your labels! Cool Whip Free has Hydrogenated oils which are TRANS FATS."
"Just remember if you don't use the Dream Whip, the amount of liquid will be WAY too much."
"How much Cool Whip do you use in place of Dream Whip?"
"Dream Whip, it comes in a box and is usually on the same isle as the puddings and jellos"
"This really sounds good. I will definitly use Cool Whip. If you buy the Cool Whip Free there is no fat at all in it. Even the Cool Whip Lite only has 1 gram of sat. fat and no trans fat."
"The only change would be to add rum extract"
"Too bad both Dream Whip and Cool Whip have trans fats."
"What is the best way to toast coconut with out turning your oven on for to long?"
"I can't eat anything with artificial sweeteners, except splenda, in it, so I would make home made vanilla pudding and use cool whip instead of dream whip. This sounds like something my husband would love to eat. He loves pineapple and coconut."
"My family loved this dessert. I try to make this often.ischaub"
"My family LOVED this dessert. Now I have to keep the ingredients always on hand!"
"you can sub coolwhip for the whipped topping mix. Just fold it into the pudding after making it."
"I think it is dream whip. It comes in a box and is like cool whip when made."
