Pudding shots!! YUM!

One of the things I am most thankful for is sugar free pudding.  I am thankful for sugar free pudding because if you have a bad day you can knock back two or three of those bad boys and not feel guilty.

So one day when I had just finished consuming my second 60 calorie sugar free pudding and was about to reach for a third, Bluebell said to me…..”you know, you could drink them like shots”

…..to which my brain said

…. “PUDDING SHOTS……….YEAH!!”

Now I am very fortunate because I have some awesome ladies that live in my neighborhood who I have become BFF’s with over the past few years. Sooooo, a couple of days after Bluebell mentioned pudding shots to me, three of my BFF’s and I decided to drive together to go shopping at Trader Joes……ummmmm isn’t that what suburban housewives do???

Hey, none of us had to work or go to school that day….don’t be haters……
So as we were driving we were discussing life and I was telling the ladies what Bluebell had said about the pudding shooters.  As we were talking we realized we were all getting together (there are 7 families in this little BFF family group) to celebrate The Hunter’s birthday on the following Saturday So we decided we needed to try to make pudding shots so I could blog about it. (Yeah, nothing in it for them either huh…..snort….)    So Friday I went shopping for puddings and made sure we had some tasty liquor and liqueurs to mix with the pudding.

On Saturday night the families arrive and we decide to have a judging of different pudding flavors with different alcohols.  The two pudding flavors we used during the experimentation were dark chocolate and vanilla.  I think the Jello sugar free dark chocolate is the creamiest of the chocolates, so that is what I bought, and plain vanilla for a different flavor palate…..(I may have been watching too much Food Network….)

We used our resident fabulous mixologist M. to mix the alcohol and the pudding to make sure we had the right consistency and taste. He poured and whisked and tasted and poured and whisked and tasted to make sure all was right.  The first batch we made was chocolate with Baileys Irish Cream and Kahlua.
Then we had some tasters.  And the results were…………….. (insert drum roll)

Chocolate pudding with Kahlua and Irish Cream

and

Big N loved them!

and

Our mixologist thought they were yummy!

Now we didn’t leave out the others, but I was so busy tasting that I forgot to take pictures…..must have been the chocolate alcohol haze I was starting to go into……..


Round number two was dark chocolate pudding and Godiva chocolate liquer….and the results were:

S loved them!!

I have to say that one was my personal FAVE!!!


Then we tried:
vanilla pudding and Buttershots liqueuer

Buttershots and vanilla.

Results:

The NewYorRican loved them!

and

A. was slurping them back!

and 
THEN we got even more creative……do I need to mention that we had all had about 5 or 6 shots by this point……so, we got creative (wait I already said that), and mixed the chocolate and vanilla together:

Chocolate and vanilla in same shot glass….why not?

Tinkerbell had a huge shot glass. She didn’t let it out of her sight!

That was Tinkerbell’s shot glass, it was huge, and she DID NOT let it out of her hands……

Steelers fan loved them too!

Then we tried mixing choc and vanilla in the same glass: (does anyone hear an echo here?)
Then I decided to beatTinkerbell at her own game and pulled out a 9 oz cup……. I  just chucked the whole shot glass idea at that point.

My solo cup is bigger than your shot glass Tink.

But the Steelers fan had the best idea of all!

Who needs a glass anyway????

And the best part is if you get pulled over on the way home and the police officer asks if you have been drinking, you can say, “Why no Officer, just had some pudding with some friends.”

Just kidding, I don’t condone slurping and driving!!!  The good news is all of my friends could just walk home!

  1. OMG…I *really* need to get out of this house and crash one of your parties. Those pudding shots sound SOOO good! Especially that chocolate and Godiva liquer one….

    • Robyn, The next time we make them I promise to let you know. You will need a designated driver or to spend the night. Alcohol and pudding makes you DRUNK!!

  2. Sounds like a great evening with friends and the best part is walking home.

  3. The New YorRican

    We had so much fun that night. Good memories..

  4. Did you change the recipe of the pudding at all to make a different consistency for the shots?

    • Benta we used the sugar free Jello pudding out of the little cups. Just added alcohol or pudding as needed to make it drinkable consistency. Our mixologist was pretty amazing!!!
