I have to say, I’m usually a vanilla person, but there is one place I make an exception: pudding. I mean, is there anything better than a big bowl of good chocolate pudding with whipped cream on top? I say an emphatic NO! Fortunately, we’ve rounded up a bunch of flavors and textures so you don’t have to pick a favorite. After all, any homemade pudding is good pudding.

First, the basics:

Cinnamon- Mascarpone Pudding by Pure Wow

From the website: “Lunch-box pudding often gets a bad rap. (The peel-off top doesn’t help.) But our pudding is in its own class–luxurious, creamy and finished in ten minutes (even better, it can be made the night before). We dress it up with silky-smooth mascarpone cheese and a touch of cinnamon, and serve it in little ceramic ramekins. Still wondering if things get better with age? The proof is in the pudding.”

Coconut Banana Pudding by Certified Pastry Aficionado 

From the website: “The recipe for banana pudding was almost exactly the same but made with coconut milk in place of whole milk. The end result was a creamy banana pudding with the perfect touches of coconut. And be cause the main coconut flavor comes from real coconut milk, the flavor doesn’t taste artificial in the slightest.”
