Vanilla pudding with strawberries

June 12, 2009 at 10:38 am 3 comments

The even exchange of goods and services tends to benefit both parties.


For example, if a friend has too many strawberries and you have too much vanilla pudding, the obvious solution is to give said friend some vanilla pudding in exchange for some strawberries.


You just can’t go wrong either way. Especially when you add graham cracker crumbs.


Non-dairy vanilla pudding
1 box vanilla Jell-o cook & serve pudding mix (NOT instant pudding)
2-inch section of a vanilla bean
3 cups soy milk
1/2 packet unflavored gelatin

Cook the pudding mix as directed, subsituting soy milk for milk-milk. Split the vanilla bean in half lengthwise and scrape the seeds into the mix. Whisk ingredients together, then — while still whisking — slowly add 1/2 packet of gelatin, then continue to cook as directed.

    what is the size of the pudding box? the large or normal….cuz the normal one you add 2 cups of milk. Do i need to get the larger box or is that why you ad the packet of gelatin

      Elaine – I believe when I made this batch, I used two small boxes and possibly forgot to halve the milk amount when posting this recipe; I’ll be sure to check on that!

      The gelatin helps the pudding set when I use soy milk, so if you’re making it with regular milk you wouldn’t need the gelatin at all. Otherwise, I simply substitute the milk cup for cup, and if the package says 2 cups, I’d go with that. :)
