I stopped buying the kids pudding packs a long time ago, used to buy the packaged powder kind you add milk to, but not often. Definitely not since our zero waste lifestyle.
I bought some gelatin at Bulk Barn, thinking I would make pudding and jello, and what ever other treats. Behold . . . You don’t need gelatin to make pudding! Nope. The recipe I used is just 7 ingredients you probably have at home! Here is the link!
This recipe would be perfect for chocolate pies too. Just like my nanny used to make. With whipping cream on top. Oh, mouth watering!!!!
No one should have to go buy a package of pudding anymore!!! For school treat size portions, mix up a batch, and pour into the kids containers to take in their lunch can. Portioned and ready to go! It would be easy to even cut the recipe in half.
I recommend small servings. This pudding is excellent, but rich!
