There is something about homemade pudding that reminds me of being a kid. My mom loved to make homemade pudding for us and I would help her every step of the way! I’d stir the warming pot and I’d wait with excitement as it cooled in the refrigerator. I recently tried Silk’s new Cashewmilk and it was the perfect time to teach my kids how to make homemade pudding. I used the same exact dessert jars that my mom made pudding in when I was a kid as you can (seen in the pictures below). She would have just loved that!
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup cornstarch
3 cups of Silk Cashewmilk
3 Tbsp butter
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
The new Silk Cashewmilk has an irresistibly creamy taste that is perfect for making pudding (especially if you want to make it gluten free!). Cashewmilk has 50% more calcium than dairy milk and only 60 calories per serving. So, if you’re looking for creative and fun ways to get a little more calcium and vitamin D in your diet, this homemade pudding recipe is great for you. Because Cashewmilk tastes creamier than skim milk, our homemade pudding was dreamy (my mouth waters just thinking about it!).
1. Mix the cocoa, sugar, salt and cornstarch in a saucepan with a whisk.
2. While whisking, slowly add the Silk Cashewmilk.
3. Bring this mixture to a boil over medium heat while whisking constantly.
4. Remove from the heat and whisk in the butter and vanilla.
5. Pour it into small serving bowls or cups.
6. Place in the refrigerator for at least one hour.
7. Add the optional sprinkles when completed cooled (makes about 8 servings).
You can always tweak the recipe a little to fit your dietary needs. For example, you could use margarine instead of butter and you don’t have to add the sprinkles. The new Silk Cashewmilk is

My kids loved indulging in our creamy homemade pudding and it brought back so many memories that I had baking with my mom. It was so special that we were able to use the same pudding cups this many years later (even though it feels like it was yesterday!). Making memories with your children is what being a parent is all about, right? Before we know it they will be grown up and on their own. I want them to have fond memories of being in the kitchen creating tasty treats with me, just like I remember doing with my mom. And hopefully, just hopefully, these pudding jars will end up in the hands of their children someday!
