It's really very simple to make your own pudding without artificial anything: OK unless you're avoiding sugar.

Here's a very easy Old Fashion Vanilla Pudding



[*]2 tablespoons sugar [/*]
[*]1 tablespoon cornstarch [/*]
[*]1/8 teaspoon salt [/*]
[*]1 cup 2% milk [/*]
[*]1 egg yolk, lightly beaten [/*]
[*]1 1/2 teaspoons butter [/*]
[*]1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract[/*]
  1. In a small saucepan, combine the sugar, cornstarch and salt. Gradually stir in milk. Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened and bubbly. Reduce heat; cook and stir 2 minutes longer. Remove from the heat.
  2. Stir a small amount of hot filling into egg yolk; return all to the pan, stirring constantly. Bring to a gentle boil; cook and stir 1 minute longer. Remove from the heat. Gently stir in butter and vanilla.
  3. Cool for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Transfer to dessert dishes. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
As is this recipe would not be the best for someone on a weight loss plan...see the next recipe for how to make a sugar free, fat free pudding.

Sugar-Free-Low Fat

Vanilla pudding


[*]1/3 cup Splenda (you can also try Stevia) but add after cooking so you don't lose flavor. [/*]
[*]3 tablespoons cornstarch [/*]
[*]1/4 teaspoon salt [/*]
[*]2 1/2 cups milk 1 or 2% or Soy milk. [/*]
[*]1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract (use the real extract, not artificial flavoring)[/*]
  1. In a saucepan, combine the Splenda, corn starch and salt. Add milk and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until mixture thickens. Add vanilla and continue to cook for 2 to 3 minutes.
  2. Pour into individual molds rinsed with cold water; chill until firm and unmold.

Ooh, I'm going to try this one today, I'll let you know how it turns out. I may even try this warm with a little cereal.

Traci,

Did you make the soy milk pudding? Just hoping to compare notes on that recipe. Mine didn't turn out that great, it really needs something.

Mine turned out okay, but nothing to sing high praise about..:?, it definitely could use something else. It was kind of runny this morning.
