Q:

My family and I really enjoy Jell-O pudding. I know there has to be a way to make our own and save some money. Do you have a recipe for pudding? Thanks, Mindy M.

A:

We love pudding, too. Making it yourself does save money, especially if you make a large batch of instant pudding, and make servings from that. Doing it this way makes each serving cost 15 cents as opposed to 25 cents from a store bought mix. I have included 4 flavors of pudding recipes .

Vanilla Pudding Mix

3 cups nonfat dry milk 4 cups sugar 1/2 tsp. nutmeg 1 tsp. salt 3 cups cornstarch 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract // Mix all except the vanilla, and store in an airtight container. To prepare, mix 1/2 cup of mix to 2 cups milk. Heat and stir constantly while boiling. Cool, then add 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract.

Chocolate Pudding Mix

2 1/2 cups nonfat dry milk 5 cups sugar 3 cups cornstarch 1 tsp. salt 2 1/2 cups unsweetened cocoa Mix and store in airtight container. To prepare, add 2/3 cup mix to 2 cups milk. Heat and stir constantly while boiling. Cool, then serve.

Coconut Cream Pudding Mix

3 cups nonfat dry milk 4 cups sugar 1 tsp. salt 3 cups cornstarch 1 1/2 cups shredded unsweetened coconut 1 tsp. coconut extract Mix the extract and the shredded coconut in a small bowl until the extract is absorbed. Add the coconut to the other ingredients and store in airtight container. To prepare, add 2/3 cup mix to 2 cups milk. Heat and stir constantly while boiling. Cool, then serve.

Butterscotch Pudding Mix

2 cups nonfat dry milk 5 cups brown sugar, packed 1 tsp. salt 3 cups cornstarch Mix and store in airtight container. To prepare, add 1/2 cup mix to 2 cups milk. Heat and stir constantly while boiling. Cool, then serve.
