Chocolate mocha pudding (Diabetic)


1 1/2 ounces unsweetened chocolate
2 1/2 cups skim milk
1/2 cup double-strength coffee (coffee made with twice as much instant granules or ground beans as usual)
1/4 cup cornstarch
3/4 cup sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
Fresh raspberries or strawberries for garnish (optional)


Place the chocolate in a 2-quart, microwave-safe glass bowl and microwave at Medium (50% power) for 2 to 3 minutes. Whisk the milk and coffee into the chocolate. In separate bowl, combine the cornstarch, sugar, and salt; whisk this mixture into the milk mixture. Microwave the entire batter at High for 4 minutes. Whisk the mixture and continue cooking at High for 4 to 6 more minutes, whisking each minute until the pudding thickens. Pour the pudding into eight dessert cups and refrigerate for at least one hour. Before serving, top with a few raspberries or strawberries for garnish.
