51/2 cups of raw, organic pastured milk
6 egg organic pastured egg yolks
1 1/3 cup sucanat or 1 cup of grade b local maple syrup
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/4 cup of roasted carob powder
8 Tablespoons arrowroot powder (or organic corn starch)
1/2 teaspoon real salt
6 tablespoons of raw organic pastured butter
3 teaspoons of vanilla
4 drops of chocolate liquid stevia
In a large pan, whisk together milk, egg yolks, sucanat or maple syrup, cocoa, arrowroot powder and salt. Cook over medium heat, stirring CONSTANTLY until pudding begins to thicken. Remove immediately from the heat, and continue to stir until pudding is creamy. Add butter and vanilla and continue to stir until mixed. Pour into serving dishes and serve warm, or chill for four hours and serve cold.
We have eaten this warm, chilled and the rest into pudding pops. I try to avoid plastics as much as possible. So, for an affordable "pop" I use my 4 oz jars. These are fabulous for baby food, left overs, yogurts, puddings and a gazillion other things. I just place a dozen jars on a cookie sheet and shovel in the pudding, add a popsicle stick and freeze. These go on my meal planner as snacks and desserts. I will post pics at a later date, I am out of sticks at the moment so............ yeah.
