Low Fat Chocolate Pudding

This was so good and you would never know it was low fat! I got the recipe from Better Homes and Gardens. I am pretty sure the whipped cream we put on the top is not low fat but we did add a few banana slices to balance it out! So it was almost like a serving of fruit :)
Rich and Creamy Chocolate Pudding
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 unsweetened cocoa powder
3 TBS cornstarch
1 tsp instant espresso powder
2 Cups fat-free milk
1 egg lightly beaten
1 TBS butter
1 tsp vanilla
1. In a medium saucepan combine sugars, cocoa powder, cornstarch, and espresso powder. Gradually stir in milk. Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened and bubbly; reduce heat. Cook and stir for two minutes more. Remove from heat.
2. Gradually whisk about 1/2 cup of the hot milk mixture into egg in a medium bowl. Add egg mixture to milk mixture in saucepan, stirring constantly. Return to heat. Reduce to medium low; cook and stir for two minutes more. Remove from heat, Stir in butter and vanilla.
3. Place saucepan in a very large bowl half filled with ice water. Stir constantly for 2 more minutes to cool. Transfer to serving glasses ( I used martini). Refrigerate for 2 to 24 hours. Top with sliced banana and whipped cream if desired.
