How did you mix it up?.
I do mine with more ice and little bit more water and I use a Ninja blender. Very good for me. There are some pros on here who I am sure will stop by and tell you even a better way..
I will tell you before reading here I waited all day for my pudding to be last and was thinking the same thing you did after mixing it up. My mouth was watering for that pudding taste and was so shocked and disappointed when I sat down to eat it. But now after reading different post on the puddings I look for my pudding at night...
It's fantastic as a shake. I do it with about 14 ounces of water and 3 handfuls of ice in the blender. Yum!..
Dude...mine was so bad, I even added a tablespoon of Cool Whip Zero (I know, no lecture please ) to try and get it down. But I just couldn't. I didn't add any ice, just the cold water and then chilled it for about 10 minutes...Couldn't get past the grainy texture!! Hope those pros check in soon...don't want to waste more Medifast food I can't choke down!..
Make it as on the package directions, but don't eat it right away, put it in the fridge for 30 min and it gets all creamy and not grainy. Lately I put it in the freezer for 30 min and eat if partly frozen. Yummy!..
I used to eat it as directed, but I prefer it as a shake (it's the only shake I'll drink). I add.
1 1/2 cups of ice, diet A&W creme soda and doctor it up a bit with loriann mint oil, or SF raspberry preserve or SF marshmellow dip. Yum very filling too. It tastes like a Wendy's frosty...
I only eat it frozen as a pudding pop. I make it according to the directions put into one of the plastic popsicle molds and pop in the freezer the night before I plan to eat it. This helps me with the texture issue...
I use ice cold water from the refrigerator and then mix it up in a bowl with a little tiny wire whisk....doesn't seem grainy to me at all, very much like instant pudding. (Which, of course, is never as good as old fashioned cooked pudding, but still palatable.)..
Choc pudding is probably my favorite meal now! I have it every day, sometimes twice a day. Ways I fix it:.
As pudding (use a tiny whisk and soak it a bit) and it is creamy to me.
As a shake (3/4 c water and 3/4 c ice in the blender).
As a mocha frappuccino (same as above but use cold coffee instead of water... can also add peppermint extract or cinnamon to this! yum!).
As a frosty "ice cream" (1/2 c water and 1 c ice in the blender, sometimes I top with WF choc syrup for a sundae!).
As a pudding pop (make pudding with a little extra water and put in a popsicle mold).
As a cream soda (with a tray of ice cubes and a can of diet soda in the blender... try with root beer, cream soda, orange, or diet rite raspberry!).
You can do any of these with the other flavors too...
I put it in a bowl with a little bit of cold water and mix it up good with a wisk... then I add the rest of the water and take an immersion blender to it. Turns out great. I actually really like the pudding. Yum...
The chocolate pudding is really great to have on hand. Look at the things people are using it for! Me? I'm lazy. I mix it well when I have my dinner time L & G and I put it in a pretty little container. I put that in the freezer and by the time it's time for my last meal, it's about half frozen if not more. Really nice. Not Ben & Jerry's, but a lovely way to end the day.
Change it up..
Miss choc pudds..
I made the Banana Puddiing with the shaker ball today and it turned out great actually looked and tasted like Banana Pudding...
I make mine up the night before (just shake it up with 1/2 cup water in a 1-cup ziplock plastic bowl, no whisk needed), keep refrigerated until eaten the next day delish, no grains...! Sometimes drippy but always tasty. Like others I often add 1 TBSP hazelnut or caramel Torani to it, or PB2, all good. Pudding is definitely my favorite Medifast meal (actually prefer banana and vanilla to chocolate, but all good).....
I put some crushed ice and cold water and the pudding and shake it up first and then mix with the magic bullet mixer. Sometimes I add more water so it's more like a really thick shake but eat it with a spoon or sometimes less so it's more like pudding. Mine doesn't have a grainy texture. And the vanilla pudding with a tad of the WF caramel dip is really good...
I love the Chocolate and Banana pudding - but to get the texture I mix them up the night before and put 'em in the fridge. I generally don't eat pudding unless it has been pre-mixed up for at least 12 hours. Once that is done, it is VERY smooth. Make sure that you WHISK it together really well though, clumps are the enemy here..
Hope you enjoy it more with some tweaking :-)..
Yeah, when I first started mf..it was one of my best treats to have, but then it seems that it s not as choclately anymore like it has gotten crappy lol....oh well I have some but will only use as a bcakup when evrything else fails lol..
I only eat my pudding as a shake. I love the vanilla and chocolate ones made with diet sunkist or diet root beer and 6-8 ice cubes. They are so tasty...I want one right now!..
I mix mine up the night before just like the package says. I let it sit in the fridge overnight and eat it the next night. It's really good...
I have had the Choc pudding everyday (almost) since I started Medifast on APril 22nd. Its my favorite Medifast food, or at least was. I still LOVE IT! BUT, I will say that some batches are grainier than others. In fact, I myself have posted about it..
So, do try what the others have posted. If that doesnt fix it for your taste buds, wait a few weeks and try again.
Or worst case scenario, if you have a friend or relative on MF, maybe trade with them...
If you have a healthy fat left, you can add a TBSP of low fat cream cheese to the mix, 1 ice cube, 4 oz of water in the blender and BLEND! Its like mousse...
That cream cheese idea sounds fabulous!.
I haven't done anything particularly creative with it, but I do find that whisking and letting it sit in the fridge for several hours really makes a difference in the texture. I do like adding non-calorie flavorings for a change in taste..
Definitely going to try the cream cheese idea!..
Pudding in the cheapo Medifast shaker.
Shake 3-4 times. Refrigerate for an hour. No graininess...
Yep, you gotta whisk it vigorously. It's always smooth and creamy...
SHAKE IT, BABY! The only way to eat the pudding is to make them into shakes! I have an emersion blender. At a cup of water and some crushed ice. Blend away until you get the consistancy you want. I think it tastes like soft serve ice cream from dairy queen. yummo!..
I use mine to make chocolate pancakes... this recipe makes 3 'meals'..
1 package Medifast Scrambled Eggs.
1 package Medifast Hot Chocolate (or choc pudding).
1 package Medifast Oatmeal (any kind).
1/2 teaspoon baking powder.
@ 1C water (or Black Coffee!).
Mix in water a little at a time until the mixture becomes the texture of pancake batter. Spray a pan with non-stick cooking spray. Heat pan to medium-hot. Pour batter into 6 medium sized pancakes. Turn over when the bottom side is brown..
Don't ask me why.. but I love salt on my pancakes. Maybe I like the sweet and savory. Top with a few sprays of butter, sf syrup and a dash of salt.
I got this recipe from www.mfrecipes.com..
I like the pudding when I need something with more substance than a shake. Make it with cold, cold water and use a whisk. Let it set for a few minutes to get a firmer consistency..
I don't care for it that much but I like how it fills me a bit better so I just eat it as fast as I can and wash it down with a drink...
I made choc pudding last night for my last meal, and at the end I stirred in a spoonful of Walden Farms caramel dip. THAT was very good! (I left it in swirls)...
Volite! I love the idea of pancakes also!! Thanks I love all the great tips on helping me!..
