To Try: Chocolate Pudding with Toppers

Makes 6 Servings 

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, sifted
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2½ cups 1% low-fat milk
  • 1/2 cup low-fat vanilla yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Optional Toppings: Crushed Graham crackers, chopped nuts, granola cereal, blueberries, raspberries, sliced bananas, sliced strawberries, light whipped cream

1. Whisk together the sugar, cocoa, cornstarch, and salt in a medium saucepan. Gradually whisk in the milk until well blended.

2. Place over medium-high heat and bring to a simmer, stirring constantly. Reduce the heat and continue to simmer, stirring gently, until the mixture thickens slightly, about 2 minutes.

3. Remove from the heat and stir in the yogurt and vanilla. Spoon the mixture into 6 individual serving bowls. Cover with plastic wrap or wax paper (this will prevent a film from forming) and chill for at least 1 hour.

4. Sprinkle with toppings as desired and serve.
