Lightened Up Bread Pudding

If you’re looking for a guilt free dessert, this Lightened Up Bread Pudding is for you!

Last weekend for Mother’s Day I was able to go out with all my favorite “Mom’s,” to Carrabba’s. We enjoyed a nice dinner and afterwards we splurged a little! We are all sort of on diets, so we only ordered one Limoncello Bread Pudding for dessert to share.

We all probably got two to three bites of this very rich treat, which I’m guessing {because they don’t share the nutritional info on their website(you know that’s not a good sign)} that those bites totalled 200 calories! Ouch!

Which leads me to this week’s “Lighter Side of Guilty Pleasures” (LSGP)

I wanted to find a healthier recipe that I would be able to enjoy the full serving without feeling, well, guilty!

Here’s what I came up with….

I finished this little beauty off with a scoop of my homemade Vanilla Frozen Yogurt (fat free of course).Now this is a treat worth digging into! Your very own serving (3/4 cup pudding/ 1/2 cup frozen yogurt) for way less than 200 calories!!
