Closest to Mom’s Prune Whip
Total TimePrep: 10 min. + chilling Cook: 10 min. + cooling
I changed this recipe quite a bit. It is a fairly good dessert if you are on a low carb (Atkins type) diet. Use 8 prunes and half the sugar but don’t change the amount of vanilla and still use 1 cup whipped cream. Once you get to the long term phase of the diet, usually up to 100 grams of carbohydrates a day, this will only use up about 15 grams of carbs (estimate not scientifically calculated but it’s close) in a 1/3 cup serving. You can fit this into a meat/veggie/cheese meal and still be able to have a little carbs in the rest of your meal. I like it because it’s rich and satisfying, unless you despise prunes you won’t feel deprived.
Some recipes are best left with mom. This... this is terrible. Perhaps if you love prunes, or yearn for the 1950s to make a comeback, this is the dish for you. If you have a contemporary pallet, though, this is a dish best avoided. Certainly, there are better uses for prunes than this, and I feel, having had the dish myself, guests will be secretly let down rather than dazzled.
