 Homemade Pudding Mix
"Whole milk and butter give this delicious pudding its rich creamy flavor," explains Gayle Becker of Mt. Clemens, Michigan. "For a fat-free version, leave out the butter and substitute water for the 2 cups milk in the pudding. Since the mix already includes nonfat dry milk, it will still be creamy and calcium-rich."
