    Love your recipes! Easy, fast and tasty, sometimes I get so tired of making the same dish 2 x’s a week, every week. I just get in a rut! Being gluten free is a lot of work sometimes. But I need to just keep on, and your recipes help. Thanks!

    Can I use Almond milk or another milk substitute? I am allergic to milk

      I wouldn’t substitute it in this recipe. Try our Dairy Free Custard recipe, it uses almond milk. Making chocolate pudding is even better since the chocolate adds a natural thickness and richness to the pudding, so you won’t taste the ‘thinness’ that a dairy free vanilla pudding has. Try one of these: Silken Chocolate Pudding & Dark Chocolate Pudding
