Vanilla Pudding Mix

I would NEVER buy pudding at the grocery store because of all the nasty additives they put in the pudding. I have been making my own pudding mix for many years and could not imagine buying the store crap any further. There are lots of recipes that call for vanilla pudding and I enjoy using my own mix; where I know I can control the amount of stuff in it and what is in it.

You Will Need:

3/4 Cup Organic Cornstarch 
1 Cup Organic Sugar
2 Organic Vanilla Beans
3/4 Cup Dry Milk Powder (Bob's Red Mill)
1 tsp Salt

Mix all ingredients together, except the vanilla beans

I like to leave my beans whole, I will cut them open at the time I need them and I like adding an extra 1 tsp of vanilla extract 

Put the beans in the middle of the mix, in your mason jar, close and shake

**To Make: Mix 2 cups raw milk with 1/2 cup pudding mix in a medium sauce pan over high heat and whisk like a crazy person. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat stirring or whisking until thickened enough to coat the back of a wooden spoon (roughly 5-7 minutes). Remove from heat and cool for 5 minutes before eating! Enjoy!!**
