If you haven’t had real chocolate pudding in your life, you are missing out! I’m not talking about the stuff that comes in the little plastic cup either. I mean, real homemade chocolate pudding made very easily on your stove top. Dee-licious. ♡

What Ingredients are Needed?

  • Plain Greek yogurt
  • Brown sugar
  • Cornstarch
  • Water + Vanilla
  • Milk
  • Unsweetened cocoa powder

What Supplies are Needed? You will need a small and medium size mixing bowl. Plus, a whisk and medium size saucepan. Lastly, measuring cups/spoons and container with a lid for storage.

Make Your Pudding:

  • First, whisk together yogurt and vanilla. Set aside.
  • Then, in another bowl, whisk together milk and cornstarch. Make sure all the lumps have been removed. Set that aside.
  • In a saucepan over medium heat, whisk together sugar, water and cocoa powder until smooth. Let it all come to a simmer and then, whisk in additional milk and cornstarch mixture. Keep a close eye on it and cook for just another two minutes or so.
  • Remove from heat and let it cool for 5 minutes. Then, whisk it together with the yogurt/vanilla mixture.
  • Place your pudding in a covered container and let it set in the fridge for at least 2 hours before serving.

Can it be served warm? Yes. But, I do recommend letting it cool for at least 30 minutes beforehand. If the pudding has already set, simply warm it slightly in a saucepan or in your microwave.

Don’t forget the whipped cream-
