PB&J Pudding

My two absolute favorite snacks at the moment are peanut butter and pudding. But yesterday, I just couldn't decide which to have... should it be peanut butter with its sticky goodness? Or, do I choose pudding, all cool and creamy? Hmm....

Then it hit me! BOTH! So I did it! I took the crazy step and decided to mix peanut butter into my pudding, and while I was at it-Jelly! I was left with an amazing, satisfying not to mention extremely healthy snack! Genius really...

Ingredients (makes 2 servings) :
-2 cups skim milk
-1 pkg. sugar free pudding mix (In my opinion, cheesecake and/or vanilla work the best)
-1/4 cup peanut butter (I always use PB2, wait-you've never heard of PB2? It's an amazing, dried peanut butter, so works extremely well when you want to mix peanut butter into different foods...and it barely has any fat and 1/4 the calories of regular peanut butter!)
-2 tsp. sugar free jelly (again, any kind works but you can never go wrong with a classic grape)

1. Mix your milk and pudding (and PB2 if you are using that for your peanut butter) until it reaches a thick consistency (you may have to refrigerate a few hours to get it to the desired thickness)
2. If using regular peanut butter: fold in the peanut butter
3. Pour pudding mixture into two bowls
4. Dollop 1 tsp. of jelly on each serving

     ~there are many different ways to go about eating this...
straight from the bowl with a spoon
using dipping agents: i.e. apple slices, baby carrots, crackers, pita chips
with granola/high fiber cereal sprinkled on top
spread atop a tortilla, or in a pita pocket
frozen in ice cube trays/Popsicle molds as a frozen treat!
the list goes on and on...

Let me know! What's your signature way to enjoy your PB&J pudding?!
