Following SNOOPY1960's lead: my chocolate, pumpkin, and vanilla puddings are similar, but I've often substituted 'Almond Breeze' or similar non-dairy 'milks' for skim or regular milk, and some are only 45 calories per cup. This ends up dropping the calories down to about 90-95 or so per serving . Not a huge difference. My recipes are otherwise very similar to what's posted, so I won't repeat the details. I do it this way mainly because I'm cooking for a vegan SO.

1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup cornstarch
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa like Hershey's
1 pinch salt
2 cups skim milk
1 ounce semisweet chocolate, finely chopped
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

OPTIONAL 1/2 teaspoon instant coffee to make it mocha flavor

In a 2-quart saucepan with a wire whisk, mix the sugar, cornstarch, cocoa and salt until combined. Whisk in the milk until blended.

Heat the mixture to boiling over medium heat, stirring constantly. Add the chocolate, and cook 1 minute, stirring until the chocolate melts and the pudding thickens slightly.

Remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in the vanilla.

Spoon the pudding into 1/2 cup portions. Serve warm or cold. If you like it cold, cover the pudding directly with plastic wrap and refrigerate.

This is about 120 calories for 1/2 cup

I would like to find recipes for low calorie puddings that are cooked/microwaved instead of instant. Can't stand instant puddings.
