    • Sugar Free Vanilla Pudding Mix

      Create your own money saving homemade Sugar Free, additive-free Vanilla pudding mix to have on hand for delicious desserts.

      To make 1 Mix:
      4 tsp stevia blend (or 3/4 tsp liquid; 1/2 tsp pure)
      3 tbsp cornstarch
      1/4 tsp salt
      2/3 c. + 1 1/2 Tbs Dry Powdered Milk

      (If you want to get fancy you can add the vanilla beans scraped from 1/2 a pod of vanilla bean in Place of the vanilla extract below)

      To Prepare the Pudding:
      1 pkg of Mix (see above)
      2-1/4 cups Cold water
      1-1/2 tsp. vanilla.

      In a heavy saucepan combine the mix and COLD water over medium heat, whisking constantly until mixture boils.

      Boil for 1 full minute; whisking constantly. remove from heat. Stir in vanilla


      Alternatives:


      • Sugar Free Chocolate Pudding follow recipe except increase stevia to your taste preference, for us it was an additional 1/4 tsp and add 1/3 cup cocoa or 2 squares (2 oz) unsweetened bakers chocolate that has been finely chopped.


      • Sugar Free Banana Pudding- reduce the Vanilla Extract to 1/2 tsp, add 1 tsp Banana Extract


      • Sugar Free Coconut Pudding- once cooked add 1/2 c. Unsweetened Flaked Coconut

        My husband is a chocolaty nut. So this is a great way to compromise

      Well, I'm not sure if this counts because it's more repurposing than making something... but what the heck!
