- 3 tablespoons cornstarch
- 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups nonfat milk
- 1/3 cup chocolate chips
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1. In a medium saucepan, mix cornstarch, cocoa powder, sugar and salt until well combined. Whisk in milk. Heat over medium, stirring frequently, until thickened and just beginning to bubble.
2. Remove from heat; stir in chocolate chips and vanilla until chocolate chips are melted and pudding is smooth.
3. Pour into 4 serving dishes or one large dish and chill until set. To prevent a skin from forming on top place plastic wrap on the surface of the pudding.
Top pudding with sliced bananas or strawberries to add a serving of fruit to your dessert. You can even try sprinkling pudding with ground flaxseed for a slightly nutty flavor and a dose of omega-3 fatty acids.
