Light & Creamy Chocolate Pudding

This pudding is exactly what its name promises—light and creamy. Because it uses soy milk, it’s a smart choice if you’re lactose intolerant. —Deborah Williams, Peoria, Arizona

    Thanks! It's very helpful. I stress on the point that when on a new diet, a daily plan is very important Without it it’s too easy to fall for peer pressure, to be unprepared and to make bad decisions. I was one among those people who had knowledge about what to eat and what not to, but didn't have a daily plan to carry me through that critical first month until I came across something called as 28-Day Keto challenge. It's more than a plan, a challenge which guided me every step of my way. Their guidance helped me a lot and now I feel a sense of accomplishment. I notice my skin and hair improve and even can sleep better now. I lost a lot of weight too and I now have that energy which I haven't felt in years. I very strongly recommend you this. Visit

    I totally agree with my fellow VFE this pudding is delicious. Its also super easy and quick to make. I used Evaporated milk as that is what I had on hand. It has lesser fat then regular and it really makes puddings slightly richer in taste. After a week of healthy eating I like to reward my Hubby with a nice little treat and this one did Just That ! This made 2 very generous bowls of lovey chocolate wonderfulness. I topped ours with a little bit of Toffee bits .TOH VFE

    I prepared this pudding today and it is delicious. I followed the instructions but could not find any chocolate soy milk so I used low fat chocolate milk and it worked just fine. This is not an overly sweet pudding so if you like your pudding sweeter, you may want to add a little more sugar. However, it is creamy and delicious. We will be having this pudding again.Volunteer Field Editor
