Sugar-Free Dessert Challenge: China Grass Pudding with Nuts.

Never under-estimate the power of a dessert.

Indeed, I always have room for desserts, no matter how much I eat. My mom is a great cook, but above everything, she is a dessert-expert, and just everyone enjoys her sweet experiments. We always look forward to the month of Ramadhan, when everyday, among the variety of spicy dishes, we have relishing desserts to hog on to at the end.

Recently, I started to learn a few of her special desserts and I am already enjoying the simplicity that goes into it, apart from the sweet dose of taste which accompanies. My all-time favorite dessert is ‘China Grass Pudding with Nuts’. To tell you a secret, this is the most famous recipe of my mom and just everybody have a special liking towards it.

China grass is a kind of gelatin which is extracted from Sea weed, and available in the form of strands or powder, mainly used for making jellies, puddings and custard. It is good for health and a body-coolant during summer.

I’m using ‘Bright Star‘ China Grass, you can buy from any company you feel like. Also, I’ll be using Sugar-free Natura in place of Sugar.



  • Made from sugar and tastes like sugar
  • does not contain the useless calories of sugar
  • contains Sucralose, the latest international zero calorie sweetener
