My New Favorite "Flat Belly" Recipe

This wonderfully decadent chocolate pudding is the perfect snack at the end of the day and provides you with plenty of healthy MUFAs (monounsaturated fatty acids) an essential part of attaining a flat belly, though you'd never know it! I developed this recipe after following a more-complicated (and more caloric!) recipe from the "Flat Belly Diet" book for chocolate pudding.

Decadent Dark Chocolate Pudding

1 (1.4 oz) Jell-0 instant fat-free, sugar free chocolate pudding mix
2 cups skim milk
1 cup plus 2 Tbsp semi-sweet chocolate chips
6 small (1/2 cup size) tupperware containers with lids

Prepare pudding according to instructions on box. Melt 6 Tbsp (3/8 cup) chocolate chips in microwave on high for 45 to 60 seconds. Combine melted morsels with chocolate pudding (mixture will be lumpy). Divide pudding mixture between the 6 tupperware containers. Top each of the six puddings with 2 Tbsp chocolate morsels. Keep refrigerated until you're ready to enjoy them. I recommended heating it in the microwave on high for 20 seconds before's amazing, trust me...

Each serving counts as a "MUFA" and has approximately 215 calories.
