This pudding recipe is a rich reward for keeping to your healthier New Year’s resolutions.
3 cups Smart Balance® Fat Free Milk and Omega-3s
2 1/2 tbsp granulated sugar
1-1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp cornstarch
1 large egg yolk
3 oz (3 squares) semi-sweet baking chocolate squares
In a medium saucepan, on medium-low heat combine milk, sugar, and cornstarch, whisking constantly until mixture has thickened.
In a separate bowl add egg yolk and whisk well. Slowly add about 1 cup of the hot milk mixture to the yolk, whisking in about a tablespoon at a time to make sure egg won’t scramble. Once the egg is tempered, whisk into the saucepan with the milk mixture.
Melt the chocolate squares in the microwave for about 20 seconds at a time, up to a minute, stirring in between until the chocolate is melted. Pour melted chocolate into the sauce pan, whisk well. Add vanilla extract and simmer on low for 12 to 15 minutes, whisking most of the cooking time. Turn off heat and cool for 30 minutes. Transfer the chocolate pudding into a large bowl and cover with the wax paper touching the pudding, so that it doesn't allow a film to settle on top. Refrigerate for at least two hours or overnight. Serve cold.
