Homemade chocolate pudding or yogo or blancmange….

IMG_1152

This is an American style chocolate pudding, however my Nana calls it a blancmange and it’s similar to chilled dairy desserts available here in Australia, such as Yogo.

This is a low cal version  (1% milk, sugar alternative), that will give you a chocolate, creamy sweet hit!

However, feel free to play with it. For Yogo, leave out the dark chocolate, and use a little less cocoa to get a lighter color.  Use real sugar, and add more chocolate! Or ever better make a decant dessert by replacing some milk with cream and melting Nutella through it!

For Aussie’s with kids, replace the cocoa with Milo, and make a homemade version of those Milo dairy snacks at the supermarket.

You could also add more vanilla for a vanilla flavor, or some other flavored powdered drinks for strawberry, caramel etc.

Ingredients for 4 small serves

2 cups of 1% milk (or milk of your choice)

3 tbs of cornflour

3 tbs of cocoa (this makes it very chocolatey, use less if you like)

4 squares of 70% cocoa dark chocolate

half a tsp of vanilla essence

2 tbs of powered steevia (use sweetener of you choice and adjust to taste)

Nuts or toasted coconut to top if you like

  1. Put milk and chocolate in a saucepan on low heat, stir until chocolate is melted.
  2. Once melted shift in flour and cocoa, while stirring to prevent lumps, add vanilla.
  3. Increase heat to medium and stir continually, until thick. Be careful it does not catch on the bottom of the pan.
  4. Pour into containers, add any toppings.
  5. Refrigerate until cold, or eat hot like a custard.
