Yes You Can! Home-Made Pudding

Pudding mix is so easy – just add milk and cook.

With basic ingredients in your pantry, you can make it almost as fast as with a mix. After all, pudding is just milk thickened with cornstarch, sweetened with sugar and flavored with vanilla or cocoa. What’s hard about that?

Cook it in the microwave to make it even faster.

Quick and Easy Microwave Chocolate Pudding (Dairy)

This recipe should convince you that homemade pudding can be quick, easy and delicious. It’s less sweet (and less expensive) than store-bought varieties. You can make it parve with unsweetened soy, almond or rice milk if you’d like.

3 tablespoons cornstarch

1/3 cup sugar

⅓ cup unsweetened cocoa powder

½ teaspoon cinnamon (optional)

2 cups nonfat or low-fat milk

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Put the cornstarch, sugar, cocoa and cinnamon in a 4-cup glass measuring cup. Mix the ingredients together well with a whisk. Slowly mix in the milk, using the whisk to keep the mixture smooth and free of any lumps of cocoa. Stir in the vanilla.

Cook in the microwave on high for 3 minutes. Remove and whisk the mixture until smooth. Return to the microwave and cook on high for 2 to 5 minutes, until it comes to a boil and thickens.

Pour the pudding into individual serving dishes or one serving bowl and refrigerate until cold.

Serves 4 to 5
