    Today, I made the butterscotch pudding. To have a healthier dessert, I used coconut milk. I usually drink almond milk, but it would be too thin for this recipe. I urge others to try the cocnut milk, as the pudding was wonderful, rich flavored, and smooth. I plan to try the chocolate pudding recipe, perhaps even making a chocolate pie very soon.

    This is so easy, I never knew I could make pudding. I added 1/4 cup cocoa powder to the dry ingredients as suggested in the magazine article. Topped with whipped cream, it really impressed my company. I am going to try to turn this into tapioca pudding next!
