Low Fat Chocolate Pudding

There’s something I’ve been meaning to tell you…

We’re moving!

Our lives are slowly making their ways into boxes, which I get to pack while simultaneously entertaining a toddler and maintaining a childproof home….all while blogging/photographing/etc. You could say life is a little nuts and it came at a crazy time. The holidays are right around the corner and I have so many amazing recipes to share with you!

We’ll be moving back to our hometown of Charleston, South Carolina. Actually, Mount Pleasant, to be specific. To make matters more crazy, we’ll be moving in with my in-laws (thank you!) while we find a place of our own.

You could say I’m running on low fuel and this type-A, perfectionist, neat-freak is freaking out a little bit.

With all of this stress, I need chocolate pudding. It’s comfort food to the max and there’s nothing finer than a bowl full to satisfy all cravings after a days work of packing, baking and chasing around a toddler.

Done.

Grabbing a bowl as we speak.

 

If you need me, I’ll be the one behind the tower of boxes licking the spoon.

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 1/2 cups skim milk
  • 1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

How-To

  1. In a saucepan, mix the cornstarch and sugar together.
  2. Slowly whisk in 1/2 cup of milk, until smooth.
  3. Then, whisk in the remaining 2 cups of milk.
  4. Bring to a boil on medium-high heat.
  5. Once boiling, lower the heat to medium and whisk until thickened (about 3 minutes).
  6. Remove from the heat and add in the chocolate chips, butter and vanilla, whisking until smooth.
  7. Divide into 8 cups.
  8. Serve warm or cover with plastic wrap, where the wrap is touching the pudding to prevent a skin from forming and place in the fridge to chill.

Makes about 3 cups.

  1. Yay! Im So happy for you! Moving back were family lives is such a blessing, especially when you start having children! I can’t wait to see all your beautiful photos of the area, the beach, the moss filled trees, the beautiful architecture, the sunrises and sunsets, oh my goodness, I could go on and on!! EEEK! Congrats!

  2. Wahoo, awesome! That explains all of the recent trips here lately. 🙂

    Feel free to bring chocolate pudding with you. I’m sure Erica (Itzy’s Kitchen) would agree with me that we would have no problem taste testing. 🙂

    1. Haha…yep. Luckily, we never really ‘left’ since both of our families are in Mount Pleasant. It’ll be good to be home after 5 years in Columbia. I’m glad I’ll have some taste testers in Charleston! 😉

    1. I know! 🙁 I’ll miss you guys, too! I’m bummed I had to miss the get together last week. A whole lot of craziness ahead! Weee!

    1. Thanks Laura! And yes, this is such an easy recipe and possibly dangerous…you may end up like me and eat it all by yourself. 😉 Mmmm!

    1. Oh yeah! I think it would work great with almond milk! I haven’t tried it so I’m not 100% sure, but I would think it would be just as delicious, if not more so if you used the vanilla almond milk. Yum! Great suggestion Lisa!

  3. Yay, so exciting – congrats on the move! Packing and unpacked are the worst, but it’ll be worth it! I wouldn’t blame you one bit for “indulging” in some pudding 🙂
