Have you ever seen what's in the ingredients of instant pudding boxes?

  • Sugar
  • Modified corn starch
  • Artificial flavor
  • Salt
  • Disodium phosphate
  • Tetrasodium pyrophosphate
  • Mono and diglycerides
  • Yellow # 5
  • Yellow # 6
  • BHA

Ummm … no thanks.

How about just the following?

  • Coconut milk
  • Cornstarch
  • Maple syrup
  • Vanilla extract
  • Salt

The good news is that I can pronounce all of that, and it's simple everyday ingredients and a few minutes of agitation to make your own pudding. I made it into a vegan pudding using plant-based milk, but you can also use regular milk. I think sometimes we're in trouble and the instant box stuff can be a lifesaver. That is totally cool. But if pudding is something you and your family enjoy often, can be worth it to try to do it on your own.

Especially after you see how easy it is to do!

How to make vegan pudding

Here is the good thing about this recipe. You throw it all in a small saucepan. Your whisk gently for a few minutes and you have pudding. Technically you should quit put in the fridge For him better consistency, but here is a little secret … you don't have to! It's * so * good when it's hot!

Non-vegan homemade pudding recipes generally contain eggs for tie the mix and I add a richer flavor, but the blend pairs very well with cornstarch, and I think the vanilla extract adds a lovely richness to the recipe.
