Chocolate Pudding


  • 1/3 cup hot water
  • 3 TB cornstarch
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 1 tsp butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup bittersweet chocolate chips
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 2 cups milk*
  • pinch cinnamon
  • dash cayenne


  1. dissolve cornstarch in hot water, add to saucepan over medium high heat.
  2. add sugar and cocoa to pan, and stir to dissolve
  3. slowly pour in milk, stirring constantly to avoid lumps
  4. add banana and chocolate chips
  5. use an egg beater or stick blender to smooth out any lumps and airate 
  6. increase heat and stir until barely simmering
  7. remove from heat and add butter, vanilla, cinnamon, and cayenne

Takes less time than preparing pudding from a box, and tastes 10,000 better!

For best results, use the highest quality ingredients you can find, especially the cocoa, chocolate chips, and vanilla. 

* I use unsweetened vanilla almond milk, but any kind will do. Adjust sugar accordingly.
