Homemade Vanilla Pudding

When I scooped a spoonful of this Healthy Vanilla Pudding and shoved it into my pie hole I was beyond shocked at how smooth, silky, creamy and flavorful it was.  I was really surprised at how much I liked loved this pudding, especially on the first trial.

I will never be afraid to admit that I am an amateur baker and absolute novice cook.  When it comes to baked goods and other desserts, I am a perfectionist, so that kind of explains my 9 trials to perfect a Healthy Red Velvet Cake and 14 trials to make a Single-Serving Chocolate Cake.  Quite embarrassing to admit, but also humbling  :)

Homemade Vanilla Pudding

This Healthy Homemade Pudding makes those storebought puddings in those plastic little tubs taste like garbage (and once you read their ingredients you will realize that it IS garbage…  I am so ashamed that I used to eat that stuff allll the time).  The two puddings are not even in the same league, they are not comparable, that is how much better this homemade pudding is!

I’ve made plenty of fruit curds lately, I’m obsessed.  I go through each batch so quickly (just like I do with all jams and jellies) because every flavor I make is healthy and good for you.  They are all free of refined white sugar! This raspberry curd is sweet and wonderfully tart, perfect for topping […]


Ahhh!  My first day of school is this Monday!!  *bites nails* And while most girls are probably picking out their outfits and choosing the perfect hairdo, I’m over here thinking about food…  peanut butter and jelly to be exact (because what else would be a suitable pairing for breakfast, brunch, lunch and snack on such […]


Bananas + Peanut Butter…  it is a simple yet delicious combination.  Over the years I have seen a ton of people walk around my college dorm eating this combo for breakfast (and the occasional midnight study snack).  You just peel a banana, spread on some peanut butter and walk out the door to class.  Boom.  Easy peasy.  But […]


How do you tailor a basic Vanilla Frozen Yogurt to fit your needs?  Your peanut butter needs, to be exact?  Add TWO sources of peanut butter to the recipe, of course!  This healthy Peanut Butter Frozen Yogurt contains both natural peanut butter and peanut flour to achieve the decadent, rich PB flavor you crave so much. To cut the […]


Please please pleeeease don’t laugh at me, but it took me 12 trials to finally perfect these Healthy Homemade Sugar Free Marshmallows (!!!!!) After trial 3 I wanted to rip my hair out but I kept on trying.  As I always do, like with my (finally) healthified Red Velvet Cake. I’m sure you’re wondering why it took me […]


It’s about freakin’ time!!!  I might have shouted that out loud in my head when I took my first bite of this cake.  It was a long time coming.  And by that, I mean, this healthy Peanut Butter Cake took six trials to perfect…  let me explain: Trial #1:      In my first attempt I was […]


I feel like I have made nut butters out of every single nut out there (almond butter, walnut butter, pecan butter, macadamia butter, pistachio butter, etc)…  all except the peanut.  I hold peanut butter to a high standard (it has to be sweet and salty, it has to be rich and smooth, and it has to be […]


When it comes to ice cream I am pretty old fashioned — I like vanilla and chocolate.  When I was a kid though, I would always get vanilla ice cream because for some reason I was never a fan of the chocolate…  it was never chocolatey enough for me.  I also hated how the chocolate […]


Healthy Chocolate Frozen Yogurt?  For real?! After making Vanilla Bean Frozen Yogurt I knew I had to make a chocolate version, especially knowing how healthy you can make it at home.  I wish Haagen Dazs or Ben & Jerry’s had a healthy frozen yogurt buuuut they don’t.  They might be low in fat but they […]


Please don’t hate me, but I have never been a fan of s’mores… Oh good, you didn’t (virtually) punch me.  But I’ll explain! The graham crackers are just too big and crunchy that they fall apart when you take a bite.  The marshmallows squish out of the “sandwich” and plop onto the ground (or if you’re […]
