Cooking with Goat Milk – Healthy Chocolate Pudding

Project Cooking with Goat Milk continues with……Healthy Chocolate Pudding.

My family loves chocolate pudding but let’s face it as easy as it is to make, boxed instant pudding is full of crap.  Sorry, but it is. I found this recipe from Food Renegade and decided to give it a try…. with goat milk of course.

Homemade Healthy (ish) Chocolate Pudding

Ingredients:

  • 1/3 c. honey
  • 4 tbsp. arrowroot powder (I used cornstarch)
  • 2 tbsp. cocoa powder
  • 2 c. milk  ( I used Goat milk)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp. butter

Directions:

In a glass measuring cup, mix cocoa, cornstarch and milk until smooth. In a saucepan combine the honey and milk mixture and stir over medium heat.

Cook until thickened stirring constantly.

Once thickened, remove from heat, stir in vanilla and butter until smooth.

Pour into serving dishes and place in refrigerator to cool.

The good: This recipe has a nice smooth chocolaty texture that the family loved… and it didn’t taste like goat.

The not so good: The pudding didn’t thicken up as well as I would have liked.

Project Cooking with Goat Milk Score 2 (we love goat milk)-1(not so much)

******Update*******

Since posting this recipe I have made several other recipes using goat milk.  As much as I would Love to tell you that they were wonderful and that I cant wait to convert my family over to drinking goat milk… that really isn’t the case. Unfortunately none of us fell in love with goat milk….at best, its okay.  For now we are just going to be drinking cows milk purchased from the store.  We have been looking for a local farmer that we can source raw milk from via herd share. (This is the only option for legally acquiring raw milk in Ohio) The other option of course is to purchase a family dairy cow, and as lovely as that sounds…..Im just not convinced Im ready to go that route.
