Registered Dietitian Approved Healthy Dessert!
Looking for a high calcium dessert? Homemade pudding is much healthier than store-bought packaged pudding. Try my Grandma Viola’s classic vanilla pudding. She would serve this with a raspberry fruit sauce or stewed rhubarb. You can also enjoy this plain, with fresh berries or top this with sliced banana and a spoon of shredded coconut. Enjoy this simple Registered Dietitian approved healthy dessert.
