OPTIFAST Chocolate & Almond Pudding Recipe
1 sachet OPTIFAST Chocolate Dessert
220 ml ice cold water
1/4 tsp almond essence
1 egg white
Start by separating the egg. Discard the yolk or save to use at a later time. Whisk the egg white until you have soft peaks or a foam-like consistency and set aside.
Combine 200ml of ice-cold water and an OPTIFAST Chocolate Dessert sachet in a medium-sized bowl and whisk until all the powder has dissolved.
Add in the almond essence and mix through, then gently fold in the beaten egg white.
Place the mixture in the fridge for 5-10 minutes to set.
Once ready, scoop the pudding into a dessert bowl or ramekin and enjoy!
