I Ate the Tops
I have a deep dark confession.
I was the one who ate the tops off the Thanksgiving pudding back in ’89.
Yes, I blamed it on Cedar. She was an easy target, being the baby sister and all. I’m sorry girl!
Back in the late ’80’s I went through a chocolate pudding stage. I made it from a box, always burned the bottom of the pot, and the skin that formed on the top was my favorite part.
A random urge came over me this morning and I channeled my 8 year old self to make a batch of chocolate pudding. This time from scratch and with a slightly more adult take on things.
This pudding is made with low-calorie Silk Unsweetened Pure Almond Milk, maple syrup, and pure vanilla.
|Chocolate Almond Milk Pudding||
- 2 cups plus 3 tablespoons Silk Almond Milk
- 2 squares unsweetened bakers chocolate
- 3-4 tablespoons pure maple syrup
- a splash of pure vanilla extract or a quarter of a vanilla bean, finely chopped
- dash of salt
- 3 tablespoons organic cornstarch
- optional: chopped roasted almonds
- Bring 2 cups of milk and 2 squares chocolate to a simmer, whisking regularly
- Turn down heat to avoid boiling over or burning the bottom
- Add maple syrup to taste, vanilla, and salt
- Whisk vigorously to meld the milk and chocolate
- In a small cup or bowl whisk 3 tablespoons cold milk and cornstarch together
- Pour cornstarch mixture into milk in a steady stream, whisking continuously
- Bring back to a simmer and cook, whisking regularly, for about 5 minutes
- Pour into 4 small bowls or mugs and refrigerate until cool
- Serve topped with chopped almonds
