Ah pudding.

I remember a time when enjoying pudding meant pulling a plastic lid off of a plastic container, licking the lid, then devouring the pudding inside the plastic cup.

Not a care in the world, and certainly no concern about the ingredients.

Only 100 calories?

Fat free?

Sold.

I’ll take two.

SKIM MILK, WATER, SUGAR, MODIFIED CORNSTARCH, COCOA PROCESSED WITH ALKALI, CORNSTARCH, CONTAINS LESS THAN 1% OF SALT, SODIUM STEAROYL LACTYLATE (FOR SMOOTH TEXTURE), SODIUM ALGINATE, CALCIUM PHOSPHATE, NATURAL AND ARTIFICIAL FLAVOR, ARTIFICIAL COLOR, VITAMIN A PALMITATE, VITAMIN D.

I challenge you to tell me what half of that stuff is.

So I made pudding. Well, it actually was supposed to be a filling for my grain-free, no bake pie crust, but it was not firm enough for that. So I now call it pudding!

    I love homemade pudding, but I’ve never had it made with coffee. I so have to try this!

    I am not a coffee fan, but I LOVE that you made your own pudding! SO COOL! (I need to google and see if I can find a powder pudding recipe!)
