I’ve always been a fan of pudding but those pre-made packs you buy at the store are always so full of artificial colors, additives, ect. It didn’t even occur to me I can easily make my own homemade pudding at home until recently! All it requires is a few ingredients and about five minutes!
1/2 cup milk and 1/2 water or all milk/water, depending on preference
1 tbsp corn starch
Dash of salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
1-2 packets sweetener (table sugar, Splenda, agave, Xylitol… whatever your preference)
In a pan on the stove, mix milk and cornstarch together. Add the rest of the ingredients and heat on medium until boiling while stirring constantly. Once boiling, it will start to thicken. Heat until desired thickness. Serve and enjoy, or stick in fridge/freezer if you want it cold. You can also add cocoa powder, cinnamon, peanut butter, or other ingredients to make different flavors. I personally love cocoa powder – chocolate pudding is my favorite!
