Pudding is a favorite in our house. We eat my chocolate pudding all of the time. Its probably my most requested dessert from my kids. But with nursing the baby right now, I have to watch my caffeine intake late at night and chocolate surprisingly has a lot of caffeine. I learned that the hard way eating chocolate cake with chocolate icing while nursing Cassidy. Nothing is worth a baby not sleeping well at night.
This pudding is quick to make and I always have the ingredients on hand. And being sweetened with only a small amount of honey, its a perfect guilt free weeknight treat. Just make sure to use organic ingredients (especially the corn starch so its gmo free).
Honey Vanilla Pudding
2 cups milk
2 Tbs corn starch
3 Tbs honey
1 Tbs vanilla
Mix corn starch, honey, and 1.5 cups cold milk in a saucepan. Heat on medium until lightly boiling.
Wisk egg and remaining 1/2 cup milk well. I often put it in the magic bullet for a second or two.
SLOWLY add egg/milk mixture to boiling milk mixture whisking well the entire time. Whisk for another minute or two.
Add vanilla and whisk until combined.
Serve warm or let cool in refrigerator.
