Cappuccino Pudding

I have a few recipes that are what I call my Sandra Lee Specials.

Don't know who she is?

Check it out:

Once you finish laughing, you can go here to check her out for real.

She's infamous for her "Semi-homemade" dishes - to say nothing of her cocktails - using mostly pre-made ingredients, tossing them together and voila:  Semi-homemade fabulousness, sometimes horrifying; sometimes intriguing; sometimes downright mystifying.

I whipped this bad boy up in the spirit of Sandra Lee's Semi-Homemade ethos, and ohmygoodness, it's not half-bad! And since I used skim milk and a package of sugar-free instant pudding mix, it's ok for phase 1 of the South Beach diet.

Cappuccino Pudding

  • 1 small (1.34 oz) box of instant vanilla pudding
  • 1-1/2 t espresso powder
  • 2 cups skim milk

  1. Mix according to the package instructions, BUT... add the espresso powder when you add the pudding powder.
  2. Eat, probably out of the same bowl you made it in.


  •  If you want to get all fancy-schmancy like I did, you can put it in a martini glass (Cocktail Time, anyone?) and add a chocolate swizzle stick as a high-falutin' garnish. 
  • As you can see, mine is melting because it is as HOT AS HELL here.  
  • Side note, heat and humidity do not bring out the shining best of my personality.
  • But this pseudo-recipe rocks because it's ready in 2 minutes. You just can't beat that.


  1. I just can't watch Sandra Lee with her semi-homemade. Good schtick though!

  2. I will definitely try it this Saturday.

  3. Sarah, Oh I know. She drives me batty, and that Kwanzaa cake of hers is an offense against food.

  4. Elena, I hope you enjoy it. :)
